England has suffered a major setback ahead of the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-final match against India in Adelaide on Thursday, November 10, with star pacer Mark Wood doubting it in the big match as he has suffered an injury. The England team faced many such setbacks at the beginning of the tournament as well. Even the play of David Malan is in doubt. In such a situation, it can be difficult for the team.

According to the English media, Mark Wood was injured in the optional training session on Tuesday 8 November. After that, he could not take part in any session of the team. Allegedly, they have been found to have symptoms of some common disease. However, no official statement has yet come from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) regarding his playing or not playing.

Wood is currently one of the fastest bowlers in the world and his extra pace is a huge asset to the English team, as most batsmen find it difficult to deal with. The wickets in Australia in the T20 World Cup 2022 have proved to be helpful for the fast bowlers. In such a situation, Wood can prove to be the biggest threat to the Indian batting unit in the big match.

If Mark Wood does not regain his fitness for the crucial knockout encounter, Tymal Mills is set to replace him in the playing XI. Mills was included in the England squad for the event after left-arm pacer Reece Topley was injured. At the same time, Phil Salt is likely to get a chance in place of David Malan.
