The active watchers of this year’s T20 World Cup 2022 must be aware that rain has been a talking point of the tournament, and the same was the case today at the Sydney Cricket ground as India played the Netherlands in match 11 of the super 12. The toss got delayed for a while after which Indian captain Rohit Sharma decided to bat first against the underdog Netherlands.
KL Rahul once again displayed poor form as he went cheaply after scoring 9 of 12 with just a single boundary in his innings. The main talking point of the Indian innings was to see Rohit Sharma time the ball well to score his first half-century of the tournament. However, he was eventually dismissed after a catch by Collin Ackermann. Virat Kohli again dominated on the pitch as he went on to score his second 50+ in as many innings remaining not out on the pitch with the star of the show Suryakumar Yadav who smashed 51 off just 25 deliveries with a strike rate of 204.
India finished their innings to set up a target of 179. The Netherlands never showed the intent of winning as the highest scorer of their innings, Tim Pringle, scored 20 of 15. There were 6 players combined who scored 10+ runs which was not enough to beat a target of 179.
Indian bowlers had a great time as Hardik Pandya remained the only bowler to not have had a wicket in the only over he bowled with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Axar Patel, and Ravichandran Ashwin taking 2 scalps each and Mohammad Shami bagging 1 for the team.
