England and India have clashed frequently in the T20Is over the past two years, but they have not faced each other in the knockout rounds of the ICC event since 2013. The two teams played each other in the 2013 Champions Cup Final as India lifted the title.
Ahead of the massive showdown, England may have to face severe setbacks as two of their vital cogs Mark Wood and David Malan appear to be looking doubtful of being fit for the match. On Wednesday, England captain, Jose Butler, said the team would give as much time as possible to prove their fitness. “We trust these two guys (Wood and Malan) and we’re going to give them as long as possible[to prove their fitness],” Butler said in an interview at the Adelaide Oval.

Wood pulled out of training on Tuesday due to “discomfort in the body” while Malan suffered a thigh injury during England’s Super 12 victory over Sri Lanka. Butler also stated that the decision to select the two for the semi-finals will be made by the medical staff before the game on Thursday.
England is the defending champion in the fiftieth format. Butler and his men will compete to become the undisputed champions of whiteball cricket after adding the T20 title to their gallery. However, they will have to surpass a high-flying Indian team that has also been in pursuit of an ICC trophy since 2013.
