T20 World Cup, India vs Netherlands: Surya, Virat and Rohit hit half-centuries as India register second straight win to go top of group | Cricket News

SYDNEY: There was a moment in the game when the Dutch discovered that the difference in class between the two sides could not be bridged by good bowling passes alone. Their varied attacks have somehow managed to stay in close contact with India’s top on a slow pitch where the ball has at times tended to stop. The surface was also slightly abraded by the South Africa-Bangladesh competition that took place earlier in the day.
Predictions of India’s master dominance over a Link team seemed far-fetched as by the end of three rounds only nine runs had been scored and KL Rahul had fallen on a questionable LBW decision. has not been considered. With Rohit Sharma finds a way out of trouble and Kohli calmly faced his time, with the end of 10 laps passing India a mere 67/1, a start at best average, even by the standards of the lethargic SCG.
Rohit fell on the 12th goal because of a mistake but in the end still met 39 tackles 53 (4×4, 3×6). At the end of the 15th, India did a little better to bring the score to 114/2, with Kohli being 32 out of 30. This is where things change.
In another ending, Suryakumar Yadavwho had his first match in the middle in Australia’s conditions in this World Cup, had signaled his intentions with 9 17 balls up to that point, using his wrist to knock, the stroke his shadow, to remove some things not so -bad ball and even open up a simple vintage cover drive.
However, the Dutch still have hope of escaping with their heads held high. If only they could hold it tight. If only they could field well. If only a joke would somehow surface within catchable range. If only.
The 16th goal of pacer Bas de Leede changed the momentum. Suryakumar hit two incredible boundaries beyond the first two, the first of which beat three batters on the outside side as the batter opened up the bat significantly at the last moment to lead the ball to boundary outside the penalty area.
The second sentence is a statement of power, emphasized again through the outer part. Kohli got in on the action, making deliveries slow faster. It was just the ‘wow’ fighter of the rounds that India needed.
Kohli hit Fred Klaasen with six and four for fifty in a row, eventually finishing with 44 62-balls that didn’t come out (3×4, 2×6). Holland bowling two balls too tight, 18 and 19, but two six six in the last from Surya (51 not out of 25 balls; 7×4, 1×6) put India up to a strong 179/2.
The Netherlands, a stronger bowling and punching unit, never entered the race after that, especially with a surface that allowed spinners Axar Patel (2/18) and Ravichandran Ashwin (February 21) a rare moment in the Australian spotlight. Pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar is also very greedy for money.
As Axar escaped their batting fulcrum, Max O’Dowd, with his second ball, the Dutch played catch up. Only Tim Pringle, the center of attention earlier for abandoning Rohit, circled around for 15 20 balls before a brilliant Kohli run in the middle of the game ended his miserable predicament. In the end, they lost 56 matches, drew 123/9 matches only thanks to a 14-match unbeaten streak of 6 matches from their No.11.
India ticks some important boxes in this game. In this second World Cup, the team’s outing ended up being all about Kohli, the man the crowd here came to see.
While Kohli seems to want to make this tournament her own, there is also Suryakumar, who has now shown his maverick style cannot be cramped on Australia’s court by lesser attacks.
India also seems to have achieved their perfect XI for all conditions across Australia, as there is great variation in the nature of the surface from MCG Come here, come here.
They were now at the top of their group, but this defeat would soon be forgotten. It’s about the biggest challenge left, South Africa, who finished 205/5 and beat Bangladesh 104 times, lying in wait on a scorching turf in Perth on Sunday.
