Live Score IND vs ENG: India all-rounder Hardik Pandya pushed India to a decent score of 168 runs after the top order failed to deliver. India play England in the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-final and the Men in Blue find themselves in a tough position.
Hardik Pandya scored 63 runs during his 33-ball stay at Adelaide Oval. He was supported by Virat Kohli who played for 50 runs. However, star players like KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma had a terrible day against England.
WATCH: Hardik Pandya hit hard against England in semi-final
India’s batsmen failed against the English bowlers as they lose many wickets early in the game. Those who stayed on the pitch couldn’t do much for the side either as the run flow was extremely slow. In the first 10 overs, India had accumulated just 62 runs and where there was a need for a big score, India may not reach the 150 mark.
KL Rahul has failed once again, Hardik Pandya saves
India’s opener KL Rahul failed to impress as he was bowled back for just 5 runs in the second over. India captain Rohit Sharma stayed on the pitch for a longer period but could not do much in 28 balls. Sharma made 27 runs and then gave way to star batsman Suryakumar Yadav.
When the fans put their hopes on the brave, but he also failed to overcome Salt who caught his ball near the boundary. Yadav was out for 14 runs.
Virat Kohli taking responsibilities on those shoulders
Former India captain Virat Kohli, however, has managed to take on the English bowlers for a long time and has completed his half-century, but the overall performance of the team has not taken them very far.
