Jos Buttler has won the toss and invited India to bat first in the second semi-final at the Adelaide Oval. “The field dimensions are different here, and we must adapt quickly,” said the England captain.
Phil Salt and Chris Jordan have replaced Dawid Malan and Mark Wood.
India would have batted first, anyway. “Another opportunity for the team to come out and play the way we’ve been playing in the ICC T20 World Cup. It is important to hold the nerves,”‘ said Rohit Sharma.
India are unchanged, meaning no place for Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant gets the nod.
India: 1 KL Rahul, 2 Rohit Sharma (capt), 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Suryakumar Yadav, 5 Rishabh Pant (wk), 6 Hardik Pandya, 7 Axar Patel, 8 R Ashwin, 9 Mohammed Shami, 10 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 11 Arshdeep Singh.
England: 1 Jos Buttler (capt & wk), 2 Alex Hales, 3 Phil Salt, 4 Ben Stokes, 5 Harry Brook, 6 Liam Livingstone, 7 Moeen Ali, 8 Sam Curran, 9 Chris Jordan, 10 Chris Woakes, 11 Adil Rashid.
