Weaknesses and Strengths
India is known for their batter, and we have seen it in the T20 world cup 2022. India has one of the strongest opening pairs of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. At number three, India has the legendary batsman Virat Kohli who has continued his form from the Asia cup to the T20 world cup 2022 and is the highest run scorer. At the 4, India has Suryakumar Yadav, and he has shown the sky’s the limit for him with his class. SKY has been a big positive for India in the last year. After that, Hardik, Dk, and Axar followed the batting lineup. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, and Md. Shami is the backbone of the bowling lineup.
In the T20 world cup 2022, Rohit Sharma has struggled with his form, and India is over-dependent upon Virat Kohli and SKY. India has won their match in close encounters that could go the other way. India is missing their leading bowler Jasprit Bumrah and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. DK has failed to deliver.
England has implemented the strategy of playing freely and targeting the maximum run. So, they have depth in batting, and the team is filled with all-rounders that give balance and make England a destructive side. Liam Livingstone can be a nightmare for any bowler on his day, and Josh Butler and Ben Stokes can anchor the innings if an early wicket falls. England has a good combination of the fast bowler, medium pacer, and spinner.
England’s fearless batting approach can backfire on a tricky pitch like Adelaide. Josh Buttler has struggled in this world cup, and the absence of Jofra Archer, their death bowler, is a concern.
