As the current T20 World Cup 2022’s semi-finals are about to start on Wednesday, fans and experts have started to express their predictions for the tantalizing matchups. On Wednesday at the SCG in Sydney, New Zealand will play a revitalized Pakistan in the first semi-final. At the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide, Thursday’s match between favorite India and England will take place. The final has been widely predicted to be India vs. Pakistan, but former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen disagrees.

The illustrious batsman thinks there is “a very strong likelihood” that England and Pakistan will face off in the championship game. “I believe the cricket world wants to see Pakistan take on India in the final, but there’s a very high possibility it’s going to be England against Pakistan,” Pietersen wrote for Betway.

“I believe England defeated India in the Adelaide Oval match. With the level of talent on the England team, I genuinely do. But all I need is for Virat to take the day off “He went on to say.

Sam Curran is now serving as England’s important player in the competition, according to Pietersen, who also said that Curran is “beautifully fulfilling that position.” “When it comes to the game’s shortest version, I like the left-arm seam and that unique assault perspective. Everybody learns the basics of bowling against right-arm seamers as they establish the groundwork for their professional lives. I thus like the little angle variation from a left-arm seamer “He wrote.

“Ryan Sidebottom was crucial for us in 2010 when we won the T20 World Cup. Given that a hitter needs a few balls to line up, the seam and swing of the left arm, as well as the distinct angle and form, are quite crucial.”

“I’m a great advocate of having one, if not two of those guys in your T20 side, and Sam Curran is fulfilling that role beautifully for England.”
