The ICC T20 World Cup 2022 has reached the semi-final stage, with India, New Zealand, England, and Pakistan making it to the top 4. India and Pakistan are the favorites to win the match and advance to the finals. The two teams are facing each other after 10 years in the World Cup, and there is a lot of excitement about the match.

The Rohit Sharma-led team performed well in the league stage, as they ended up the table toppers in their group. The Men in Blue started their campaign with an impressive 5-wicket victory over Pakistan and barring South Africa, they beat everyone in their group. All their hard work will be rewarded if they can secure two more victories and bring the trophy home.

It’ll Give Us Some Confidence – Rohit Sharma

India won both the T20I and ODI series during their white-ball tour of England. India captain Rohit Sharma stated that the results will boost the team’s confidence without making them overly reliant.

“I mean, certainly going into the game, it’ll give us some confidence because beating a team like England in England, obviously it’s a big challenge, and we overcame that challenge pretty well.”

“But again, like we do understand the dynamics of this T20 cricket. You just have to be good on that particular day, otherwise it’s not good enough. But certainly the guys will have some confidence going into tomorrow’s game,” Rohit Sharma told reporters ahead of the semifinal.

India have not won an ICC tournament since the 2013 Champions Trophy, and they came close to winning the trophy, but lost in the 2014 T20 World Cup and 2017 Champions Trophy finals. The team only reached the semi-finals of the 2015 ODI World Cup, 2016 T20 World Cup, and 2019 World Cup. In the 2021 T20 World Cup, the team exited on the group stage.
