‘A voice was coming from inside me that…’
‘Very disappointing,’ said Jos Buttler after the game.We had a good chance while chasing 230 runs, but then the same old story happened.Although I was unsure about the dew, a voice within me told me that we should pursue the target.We applied good pressure, bowled well, and took wickets.We would have been content if you had said we were chasing 230 runs.
‘Personally, I wanted to bear some pressure, go through that phase, then build a partnership and destroy India’s momentum,’ Butler says.It is all about committing and executing your abilities.While chasing 230 runs, there was no scoreboard pressure.It’s about getting through that stage.Whatever we try at the moment, we are falling short.
‘I think our answers will be on a postcard,’ Butler said.We have some top players, but we are far from our best.The bowlers got some movement in the powerplay, which was a great start.Although there was some uneven bounce, the ground fielding was excellent.Today felt like our day, but the way we batted cannot be justified.
Indian captain Rohit gave this statement
‘I think we showed a lot of spirit in this match,’ Indian captain Rohit Sharma said after the win.We knew the pitch was helpful and our bowling was experienced, so we wanted to reach a good score. All of the experienced players played responsibly at the right time and won the match.
‘We did not perform well with the bat,’ said the Indian captain.It’s not ideal to lose three wickets in the first powerplay.Then you needed a long partnership, which we had, but we lost wickets, including mine.Looking at the big picture, I’d say we were 30 runs behind schedule.
this is how the competition between the two teams was
After losing the toss, India batted first and scored 229 runs for nine wickets in the allotted overs.India had lost three wickets for only 40 runs in the match.Following this, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul rescued India with a 91-run partnership.Rohit faced 101 deliveries and scored 87 runs, including 10 fours and three sixes.Apart from Rohit, Suryakumar Yadav scored 49 runs to help India reach a respectable position.For England, David Willey took three wickets.Chris Woakes and Adil Rashid each had two victories.
