Fantasy Picks for India vs England Semi Final 1 T20 World Cup 2020
Thus far, both teams have shown some exceptional performances in the tournament and both have the strength to make it to the World Cup finals. India were defeated the last time when in 2017, both these teams met at the same stage in the world T20 competition. However, a lot has changed since then & we are ready to witness a thriller of a game along with our fantasy cricket playing 11 for the IND-W vs ENG-W semi-final 1. Here’s what the probable 11 of both the teams should look like:
India-Women: Harmanpreet Kaur (C), Smriti Mandhana, Shikha Pandey, Poonam Yadav, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Veda Krishnamurthy, Deepti Sharma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Taniya Bhatia (wk), Radha Yadav, Shafali Verma
England-Women: Heather Knight (C), Anya Shrubsole, Danielle Wyatt, Tammy Beaumont, Katherine Brunt, Amy Ellen Jones (wk), Natalie Sciver, Fran Wilson, Sophie Ecclestone, Sarah Glenn, Mady Villiers
Top Fantasy Picks for your Fantasy Cricket Playing 11:
- Shafali Verma
Yes, the wonder girl everybody’s been talking about. The Rohtak-born explosive right hander has been crowned as the world’s number 1 T20 batsmen in the latest rankings. Shafali has been absolutely magnificent in the powerplay overs but is yet to make her T20 half century in the series. The big occasion might just require her best to come out and give India a great start. She is one of the best choices for Captain in your fantasy cricket playing 11.
- Radha Yadav
The left armer has been a little overshadowed throughout this tournament but has made major contributions in India’s victory streak in this tournament. Her four-fer in the previous game against Sri Lanka was vital. Along with her spin bowling, her fielding has been impeccable in this series and she has held on to every ball coming her way so she can fetch you a few (critical) extra fantasy points.
- Natalie Sciver
The leading top scorer in the tournament, Natalie Sciver is a sure-shot threat to the young Indian side. She has scored 202 runs in the series thus far and on such a big occasion is sure to deliver the goods for her country. The 27-year old all-rounder was instrumental in India’s knockout from the 2017 T20 world cup so she will be under the scanner against the Indian think tank.
- Heather Knight
The England skipper, along with her counterpart is the second most leading run scorer in the tournament with 193 against her name. Knight has already made plans to go up against Poonam Yadav who has been the leading wicket-taker in the tournament. She has said in a recent interview that facing the spinner will be the key in the semi final. In a must-win game, the Captain will surely score an odd 30 if not a fast paced 40 or 50. Safe pick for Vice Captain.
- Poonam Yadav
The leading wicket-taker in the ongoing T20 World Cup, Poonam Yadav has left everyone outfoxed with her slower-ones in the tournament. England is already practicing in accordance to deal with the Indian spinner, but Poonam has by-far delivered the goods picking the most crucial wickets in every game. With 9 wickets in her bag in the tournament, England might look at the way Amelia Kerr played Poonam in the game between India & New Zealand where she gave away 16 runs in an over.
