    England need to be at their absolute best: Naseer

    England defeated India in 2022 T-20 WC SF

    England failed to qualify for SFs in 2023 ODI WC

Although India walk into their game with England as the favourites in light of recent form, the second semi final is expected to be more competitive in comparison to the first one, which was rather one-sided. India would be eyeing for revenge as they were comprehensively defeated by England during the semi final clash in 2022. Former England captain Naseer Husain was however confident of the ability of the team led by Jos Buttler in posing a tough challenge to India. “If Rohit gets India off to a flyer, and Virat Kohli – who’s been short of runs – rises to the big occasion, England could be in trouble. But whatever India throws at them, Buttler’s team won’t panic. And that alone gives England a chance of reaching another World Cup final – even though they’ll need to be at their absolute best to win,” Naseer stated in his column for the DailyMail.

Naseer advised the squad to take the game deep in order to improve their chances at securing a win. The demons of the 2023 ODI World Cup wherein England failed to make it past the group stage would possibly not haunt them ahead of their fixture. Naseer alluded to the aggressive approach adopted by England as a policy over the years across all formats of the game giving them advantage. “Don’t forget that they’ve been honing their approach for a long time, while India have only belatedly decided to hit out at the top. They’re a hell of a side, but it’s only fair to point out that they have not translated their vast talent into silverware,” Nasser added.
