Top Four Batters to Watch out for in Semi-finals of T20 World Cup

T20 World Cup Top Batters

Pitches in Australia are somewhat harder and drier. Despite being dry, the pitch won’t break easily, therefore they won’t aid in spinning. Let us look at T20 World Cup Top Batters in Semi-finals.

Australia is a vast country, therefore even its pitches differ from place to place. However, the majority of their wickets have hard, bouncy surfaces that help bowlers who strike the deck hard. However, there is typically less room for swing unless it is gloomy.

The pitch’s difficulty makes it easier for the ball to leave the wicket quickly. You must wear a helmet as a batsman since you will frequently be tested by bouncers. However, Sydney-style wickets offer spin. Australia has gorgeous pitches that are helpful for both bowling and batting.

Current Highest Run-Scorer

Indian Batsman King Virat Kohli is the current leading run-scorer of the tournament with 246 runs from six matches. He has scored 3 half-centuries in his 6 matches. Virat Kohli also has the best batting average of 123. He along with Suryakumar Yadav has scored the most No.of half-centuries so far in the group stages. His current form tells that he is a serious threat to the England side in the second semi-final of the T20 World Cup.

But here we will discuss regarding the top four batsmen who can be a serious threat to opponents;

Fourth Mohammad Rizwan

A limited batsman but a technically sound keeper who is currently ranked the no.2 batsman in the world behind Suryakumar Yadav. The Pakistan wicketkeeper is a destructive batsman who can kill opponents with his wide variety of shots.

He is currently out of form in this T20 World Cup but we cannot underestimate the capacity of Rizwan, It will be interesting to see how he plays his innings. He usually starts with a slow pace but changes his gears after settling down in the pitch. That’s why he is a serious player to watch out for in the T20 World Cup.

Third Jos Buttler

Jos Buttler is priming for another strong performance as England look to book a final spot at MCG. England will face India in the second semi-final of the T20 World Cup and Jos Buttler with 119 runs in five matches. Buttler has scored a half-century against New Zealand and in this World, he has been a bit inconsistent and this was troubling England at the top of the order but eventually, it looks like Jos Buttler is back in form and is a possible threat for India in the second semi-final.

Buttler is known for switching gears and going after the bowler, here against India in the second semi-final Buttler will play a key role in opposing India bowlers. It is for sure that India will have a difficult time stopping Buttler from scoring big runs.

Second Glenn Phillips

Glenn Philips is the second-highest run-scorer (104) in this edition of the T20 world cup. The Scored a century against Sri Lanka and scored a fifty against England. He has scored big runs against some of the big teams and that’s why he can be a serious threat.

He has played 6 matches and scored 215 runs at a strike rate of 147.5. Glenn Phillips is the kind of player every team wishes for and New Zealand has a gem in their hand. New Zealand will be looking to continue their superb form into the finals and lift the ICC major trophy. Glenn is also a good wicketkeeper who can take brilliant catches and bat when the team needs the most.

First Suryakumar Yadav

The Modern day 360° batsman “SKY” has demonstrated this ability in larger games against more formidable opponents. To play the way he did and have his teammates say that “they expected it” is a sign that we are seeing a player at the height of his influence who is reliable while striking at 180, despite the constant impulse to mock the sensationalizing of the present.

Suryakumar Yadav has scored 225 runs so far in 6 games with a strike rate of 193. He has three fifties to his name. Nowadays it’s always eye-catching seeing Surya play the way he does. People have given him the nickname Modern day 360° batsman and he can be a serious threat to the England Bowlers in the Semi-finals.

These are the top batsmen who can be a serious threat to the opposition and it is not like other players who are not mentioned on the list are not performing well its just that according to the latest stats and figures we are suggesting that the opponent team must keep an eye on these players.
