After the game against Zimbabwe, Rohit Sharma said, “(About the semifinal against England) The key for us will be to adjust to the conditions as quickly as possible. We have played a game there recently but England will be a good challenge for us. They have been playing some good cricket. Two teams going at each other, it will be a great contest. We do not want to forget what has got us here, we just need to keep sticking to that and understand what each individual needs to do.”

The veteran Indian opener also lauded Suryakumar Yadav, who is batting like an alien at the T20 World Cup. The middle-order batter remained unbeaten on 61 off just 25 balls to help India reach a match-winning total of 186-5 in 20 overs. Team India will meet former champions England in the second semi-final of the T20 World Cup at the Oval on Thursday.

We expect nothing less in the semifinal. Hats off to them, on behalf of the team I want to thank them.”
