England Cricket Jokes About India's Semi-Final Qualification in T20 World Cup 2024

England Cricket playfully mocked India after the Men in Blue secured their spot in the semi-finals of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. India is set to face England on June 27, following their 24-run victory over Australia which placed them at the top of Group 1. Rohit Sharma led the charge with an impressive 92 runs off 41 balls, including 8 sixes and 7 fours. India posted a total of 205, and despite Travis Head’s remarkable effort, they emerged victorious.

With this win, India confirmed their semi-final clash with Jos Buttler’s team in Guyana. The defending champions, England, had a challenging path to the semi-finals. They needed assistance from Australia, who defeated Scotland, allowing England to advance. During the Super 8 stage, England began with a victory over the West Indies but suffered a loss to South Africa. Their qualification hinged on a win against the USA, which they achieved.

In a light-hearted tweet, England Cricket reminisced about their previous encounter with India in the 2022 T20 World Cup semi-final, asking, "Anyone know what happened last time?" To recall, England had defeated India by 10 wickets while chasing a target of 169 runs. In that match, Hardik Pandya scored 63 and Virat Kohli added 50, but Alex Hales and Jos Buttler successfully completed the chase in just 16 overs.
