Two heavyweights clash in an all-important clash of the tournament. Two of the best white ball teams for a span of over 4 years will lock horns against each other. Both teams have a powerful lineup who can blow away the opposition on their given day. The two teams are filled with match winners on their side and have the ability to win matches single-handedly.
It promises to be a nail-biter and possibly the best match of the tournament. Ultimately the team which would hold their nerve would win the match. England failed to win the semifinals last year and crumbled under pressure. India failed to play well under pressure last year and got knocked out early. It is the ultimate test of the character of both teams.
India will face England on 10th November at the Adelaide Oval. The match will start at 1:30 PM and promises to be a very exciting and closely fought contest.

The pitch at the Adelaide Oval has something for everyone. Fast bowlers love bowling on this wicket as they get a lot of swings and bounce off the wicket. Spinners also get a considerable amount of turn and bounce. The batsmen can trust the bounce of this wicket and can score runs freely. Teams winning the toss would look to bowl first.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI
KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant/Dinesh Karthik (wk), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh
Alex Hales, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood
It is difficult to separate both sides. Both sides have too much quality in their side. On paper, England have a stronger squad. But India have got out of difficult situations and managed to win crucial matches. The one who holds the nerves better wins the match.
