India is on the verge of potentially securing their first significant title in more than ten years, aiming to dispel concerns about their resilience in knockout matches as they prepare to confront reigning champions England in the Twenty20 World Cup semi-finals on Thursday. Despite the financial backing of the world's wealthiest cricket board, India has struggled to achieve success on the grandest stages, with their 2013 Champions Trophy victory being their most recent among five global titles. Led by Rohit Sharma, the team enters the match against England in Guyana on a six-match undefeated run in the tournament, resolute in their ambition to replicate the 2007 inaugural edition's triumph. Rohit, possibly playing in his last T20 World Cup alongside Virat Kohli, regained form with a 92 off 41 balls in a decisive victory against Australia in the Super Eight stage, emphasizing the team's commitment to aggression. 'We don't want to alter our approach. We aim to continue playing as we have, understanding individual roles at specific moments and playing freely without overthinking the future,' he stated. Indian supporters remain apprehensive due to the team's inconsistent performances in major tournament finals. Although they dominated the group stage in the 2019 50-overs World Cup, they were eliminated in the semi-finals by New Zealand. Similar fates occurred in the 2022 T20 World Cup against England and in the 2023 World Test Championship final against Australia. However, India appears strong in both batting and bowling, with Rohit accumulating 191 runs in six matches, and bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav taking 11 and seven wickets respectively. The performance of Bumrah and Kuldeep in the upcoming match will be crucial. England's journey has been uneven, with defeats to Australia and South Africa in the group stages, advancing to the Super Eights due to a superior net run rate over Scotland. They are now two wins away from becoming the first team to retain the T20 World Cup trophy. All-rounder Liam Livingstone commented, 'In tournament cricket, it's sometimes better to edge it at the end.' England's top scorer, Jos Buttler, with 191 runs, and opener Phil Salt, with 183, will be pivotal if they are to progress. The winner of the India-England clash will face either South Africa or Afghanistan in the final.
