England sealed the final spot after outplaying the Indian team by 10 wickets. The 2009 and 2010 T20 World Cup champions will be looking to win the title once again at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Talking about the semi-final clash between India and England, the Men in Blue batted first and scored 168 runs in 20 overs. Virat Kohli yet again starred with the bat and scored a brilliant half-century. Hardik Pandya too played a blinder as he made 63 runs in just 33 balls. Opener KL Rahul once again failed to deliver as he got out after scoring just 5 runs.
In reply, England openers Buttler and Hales starred with the bat and led England to a facile win. England will now lock horns against Pakistan in the final of the T20 World Cup at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Sunday.
