Check Out The Top 4 Teams Who Will Ace the ICC Men’s World Cup T20 Semi-Finals
Australia is one of the favorites to win the popular tournament this year. Aaron Finch captained the team to glory as a short format champion in 2021 and they defeated New Zealand in the finals. However, they will not be at home this time when they play in the World T20. The team has a strong batting unit with the likes of David Warner, Aaron Finch, Steve Smith, Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, and Glenn Maxwell. Tim David is in the squad due to his power-hitting. Matthew Wade will be looking to keep up his good form. Josh Inglis will be another batting option. Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, Kane Richardson, and Mitchell Marsh comprise pace bowlers while Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar are good spinners. Australia had a good showing at the T20 World Cup as they defeated West Indies 2-0 before losing the 3-match series against England 0-2. There is no doubt that Australia has a better chance to make it to the semi-finals.
In Group 1, England looks like a strong favorite for the semi-finals. Though Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy will be missed-they are major players. The quality batting line-up includes Jos Buttler and Alex Hales, who can destroy any bowling line-up on their day. Along with Moeen Ali, Harry Brooks, and Moeen Ali, Dawid Malan, Phil Salt, and Liam Livingstone form the middle order. Their bowling looks like a mishmash with two left-arm pacemen in the form of Reece Topley and David Willey. Mark Wood can trouble the batters with speed and bounce. Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, and Sam Curran can do well if the conditions assist seamers. Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali are the two quality spinners in the squad. Both of them can trouble the opposition if their long boundaries are available and if their batting unit clicks together. Be ready to see this team in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Semi-Finals 2022.
The Indian Cricket Team can have a great chance to mark its presence in the T20 World Cup 2022. Rohit Sharma is set to lead the side this year. KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, and Axar Patel are all explosive hitters. They will be looking to make up for their poor performance in the last edition. Mohammed Shami has been chosen as the replacement for Jasprit Bumrah. The pace bowling unit consists of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, and Harshal Patel. The Indian bowling has been struggling against the opposition, as they had to chase down big targets. Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, and Deepak Hooda are all available as spin bowlers. The players were able to reach the top stage of their batting and subsequent bowling can prevent the opposition. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur, and Ravi Bishnoi are all reserve players. The Indian cricket team will certainly have an uphill battle to climb, as their batting will need to score decent totals in order to prevent their bowling from being restricted by the opposition. Be ready to witness some real performance by the Indian team.
The South African pace bowlers will be in fine form if they beat Ireland. They include Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell, and Lungi Ngidi, all of whom can get early victims. The batting order looks strong, with de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Rilee Rossouw, Tristian Stubbs, Aiden Markram, and David Miller, who can make the most of their power-hitting. Shamsi and Keshav Maharaj will be the two spinners in this tournament. Marco Jansen has been named as a replacement for Dwaine Pretorius, who has been ruled out due to an injury. The reserves are Fortuin, Andile Phehlukawyo, and Lizaad Williams. Rassie Van der Dussen would be missing from the squad as a result of his good showing at the T20 World Cup last year. The South Africans have a good chance of reaching the semi-finals with a strong bowling attack and aggressive batters.
