Rahul flopped again in the big match..
Indian opener KL Rahul’s failure against the big team continued. Rahul scored half centuries against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. In this match where the final was to be reached, he hit a four on the first ball and even though he looked in the swing, it was not of much use. He scored 5 runs off 5 balls and was caught by Jos Buttler off the bowling of Chris Woakes. As a result, Team India could not score huge runs in the power play. This difference was evident in England’s batting.
Tussumanna team India in batting power play..
England won the toss and chose to bowl first. Indian captain Rohit Sharma said that he will bat first even if he wins the toss. But, even after entering the ring, the Indian batsmen looked a bit terrible. India lost just 1 wicket in 6 overs of power-play. But, by scoring only 38 runs, it took a step towards defeat. India scored only 62 runs in 10 overs and gave up.
Hardik is the only one hitting.. The team is relieved..
After a slow start, India needed power hitting in the final overs. Hardik Pandya definitely succeeds in this. But, he proved himself alone in this regard. The reason for this is that no one else could swing the bat except him. Hardik batted at a strike rate of 190. However, none of the batsmen who played at least 15 balls could score runs even at a strike rate of 130. Captain Rohit Sharma scored runs at a strike rate of 96 while Virat Kohli scored runs at a strike rate of 125. Surya gave a good start. But, he got out after 10 balls. Rishabh Pant also managed to score only 6 runs in 4 balls.
India is relieved in bowling..
India bowled well before the semi-final in this World Cup. The reason for this is that fast bowlers get good swing in those matches. There was no swing in this match. As a result, the Indian bowlers proved to be completely ineffective. Not only Bhuveshwar, Arshdeep.. Shami also became lifeless. The Indian bowlers who failed to take wickets were killed by the England openers.
A target of 169 could be a challenge in the semi-final match. But, English openers Jos Buttler and Alex Hales reached the target without any pressure. These two, who batted hard from the first over, killed the Indian bowlers. Buttler was unbeaten on 80 at a strike rate of 163, while Hales was unbeaten on 86 at a strike rate of 182. It is surprising that our bowlers did not register a single wicket. England won by 10 wickets.
