New Delhi: Team India will face England in the T20 World Cup semi-final on Thursday. The team finished at the top of their group at the Super 12 stage, accumulating eight points in five games. Team India’s star batsmen Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav have performed brilliantly in the group stage.

Dinesh Karthik has experience

However, one of the biggest debates heading into the semi-finals in Adelaide is the goalkeeping position. For which two players Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant are in the queue. While Karthik played the first four group stage matches for India, Pant replaced the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman in the final match against Zimbabwe.

However, he got out after scoring just 3 runs in that match. Ahead of the semi-finals, former South African batsman AB de Villiers has put an end to the debate and said he would like to go with the experience of Dinesh Karthik.

De Villiers said this

De Villiers said on his official YouTube channel, “It’s difficult for me. DK should definitely be in the XI of India’s team. Knockout stage. DK has experience, I would like bring him. But here I want Pant in the team for the curve ball. I will find another place for him. Although I don’t know which way it leads to that. De Villiers said that Rishabh Pant has scored a century in Test cricket in Australia , and India need their firepower in the middle order.”
