Jos Buttler has found it difficult to play against the Indian fast bowler, Jasprit Bumrah, in all formats of the game, which is why he will need to see him off, to get England off to a decent start in the T20 World Cup 2024 semifinal. In their 12 battles in the T20 format, the English captain has lost his wicket four times against Jasprit Bumrah, scoring just 71 runs at a strike rate of 86.58 with just 10 fours and one maximum.

Suryakumar Yadav vs Adil Rashid

Suryakumar Yadav is one of the fiercest hitters of spin bowling in world cricket, and he has the wood over many spinners, including the English leggie, Adil Rashid. The right-handed batter has played against him thrice, getting dismissed on two occasions, but not without scoring 39 runs off 229.83 strike-rate, including three fours and three maximums in the T20 format, smashing him to all corners of the ground at multiple venues, which could be the case again in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Rohit Sharma vs Jofra Archer

The Indian captain has scored only 17 runs in six innings against Jofra Archer in the T20 format, losing his wicket thrice to him, hitting just two fours in the process at a strike rate of 85, which would make their upcoming battle in the T20 World Cup 2024 quite interesting.
