India take on England in the second of the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup and it gets underway at 3.30pm UK time on Thursday afternoon.

India are in the winning habit at this T20 World Cup, but defending champions England might just be coming good at the right time. 

India start favourites, but there's pressure on them. They've not won a global tournament since the 2013 Champions Trophy, so I'm taking England. 

England have regularly been there, they've done it before recently, so I'm taking England at 13/10 with Bet365, but be warned, if there is rain around in Guyana, there's bizarrely no reserve day for this semi-final as there is for the other one. India would progress as they topped their Super 8 group, whereas England came in second place in theirs. 

Like in the other semi-final, I'm picking a batter on both sides to be the top scorer in the match. Rohit Sharma for India, he was incredibly impressive with his 94 in India's last match against Australia. He's a big match player and he's 5/1 with SkyBet. For England, I'm going to go with Jonny Bairstow. He's 7/1 and I'm taking him purely because he's the value in the market. He's shown glimpses of his best form in the last couple of games and if England lose early wickets, he could be the key. 

For the man of the match market, both Rohit Sharma and Jos Buttler, are priced at 10/1. The two captains will have a big part to play in this semi-final.

Whoever wins this semi-final will be the favourites in the final. It's a big opportunity for both. 

- England to win at 13/10

- Rohit Sharma to top score in the match at 5/1

- Jonny Bairstow to top score in the match at 7/1

- Rohit Sharma to be Player of the match at 10/1

- Jos Buttler to be Player of the Match at 10/1
