Brief of the IND Vs ENG, the 29th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023
Today, India managed to score a total of 229 runs for the loss of nine wickets in 50 overs. If we see the Indian batting today, it has not been as impressive as it has been in previous matches of the tournament.
India’s batting lineup, except for Rohit Sharma and Surya Kumar Yadav, was struggling and failed to perform. However, the blowing of the Indian team again astonished the English batter and did not give any opportunity to build partnerships.
on a surface with two paces. When it came to bowling, England’s new-ball bowlers were spot on right away. In addition to dismissing three of the top four Indian hitters, Willey and Woakes each managed to deliver a maiden blow to the lethal Rohit. Gill was outscored by an in-seamer, Kohli attempted an uncommon stroke, and Iyer was out again. The hosts found themselves facing the wall at 40/3.
At that point, the Indian skipper teamed up with his old opening partner to help right the ship. They were scoring at a respectable pace and refused to let the England spinners dictate terms on a field where making strokes was difficult. When Buttler turned to face Willey, the left-arm speedster ended their 91-run collaboration.
Throughout the match, the English team seemed tired and less confident. And its batting lineup could not do much as most of the English batters are out of form in this tournament so far. Half of the players could manage to score only 52 runs, and the total team went all out at 129 runs.
