Mark Wood injured
Mark Wood has been a consistent performer for England since returning to international cricket in Pakistan following an elbow injury. He has consistently bowled over 145 kmph in the ongoing T20 World Cup in Australia. Meanwhile, he has taken nine wickets at an economy rate of 7.71. But he did not bowl in the two practice sessions at England’s Adelaide Oval. According to a report by ESPNcricinfo, he is unlikely to play against India. His muscles are said to be tight.
Preparations are underway to include Chris Jordan in the playing eleven due to Mark Wood’s injury. Jordan has played just one game since recovering from a finger injury. He conceded 39 runs in three overs against Australia in Canberra last month. But he is a very experienced T20 bowler. He can also hit big in batting.

Malan was injured against Sri Lanka
England’s leading batsman David Malan is also doubtful about playing in this semi-final match. Malan was injured during the match against Sri Lanka on Saturday. Injured while fielding, Malan did not even come to bat. Phil Salt may get a chance to play in his place in the match against India.
