India takes on England in today's second semi-final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 at the Adelaide Oval. A win here would set up the much anticipated India-Pakistan Final, after the latter qualified for the final, beating New Zealand comprehensively last evening.
Former India Women's captain Mithali Raj is expecting an Indo-Pak final on November 13 but has also warned the Rohit Sharma-led side of any complacency. Speaking to official broadcasters, Raj said that Team India must bring their A-game to Adelaide.
"Sure, it (India-Pakistan final) will happen. Now that Pakistan has qualified for the final, India will be at their best. India will have to be at their A-game tomorrow if they have to beat England.
And it's a ground that India has done well. So, if the wicket is very similar to what we got to see today, then it will definitely go in favor of India."
Raj further communicated that a lot would depend on Virat Kohli, who has been in rich form.
"To reach the final, it's important that he scores runs. He needs to continue to follow his routine and not change too much, because his expectations are there."
The final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday.
