In today’s match, England won the toss in Adelaide and invited India to bat. Indian team openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma continued their poor form, Rahul scored 5 runs in 5 balls, and the same Indian team captain Rohit Sharma scored only 27 runs in 28 balls, maybe he forgot during batting that T20 has only 20 overs to play.
Due to Rohit Sharma’s slow batting, there was pressure on the Indian batsmen, due to which they were not able to play freely.
After Indian opening pair KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav tried to accelerate the run rate, but unfortunately, he lost his wicket early playing a big shot against Adil Rashid, and Virat Kohli scored a crucial half-century.
In the final, Hardik Pandya scored 63 runs in just 33 balls with the help of five sixes and four fours. India could only manage 168 runs in 20 overs due to a slow start from Rohit Sharma.
Chasing 169 for England, captain Jos Buttler and Alex Hales batted like a club team in front. Both the batsmen performed well and scored 169 runs in just 16 overs without losing a single wicket.
England captain Jos Buttler scored 80 runs in just 49 balls with nine fours and three sixes, while his opening partner Alex Hales hit 86 off 47 balls, which included seven big sixes and four fours.
