It looks like Indian cricket team is on a winning spree in the ICC World T20. Even though, India made some blunders in the last game against West Indies, the team managed to win the hearts of many after sealing the second consecutive win.
India crushed West Indies with seven wickets in the Super-10 clash at the Sher-E-Bangla National Stadium on Sunday.
India won the match during the 19th over. West Indies racked in 129 runs and India chased the target with Virat Kohli’s sparkling 54 (41 balls, 1X6, 5X4).
Rohit Sharma supported Virat on the field and he remained unbeaten on 62 (55 balls, 5X4, 2X6). Their second-wicket partnership ensured India’s victory.
The real heroes of the match were the bowlers and MS Dhoni’s superb captaincy.
His great captaincy and right decisions helped India win the match. People thought he would start with R Ashwin, instead he gave the ball to Meerut seamer, Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He didn’t disappoint at all.
Kumar was spot-on on the wicket. He beat the bat in numerous occasions and his first spell was great. He just gave three runs off his first three overs. Gayle was dropped by R Ashwin in the first slip. It could have cost India dearly.
In the Super-10 Clash between India and West Indies was going to be between Chris Gayle and the spinners from India. Gayle smashed a six over long-on on Amit Mishra’s first delivery.
Yuvraj Singh dropped Gayle at deep mid-wicket. However, Amit Mishra’s spectacular return catch send Smith back to the pavilion for 11 (29 balls).
Gayle was run out and he scored 34 in 33 balls. Samuels soon followed Gayle to the pavilion and was stumped off Mishra. Soon, Mishra trapped Dwayne Bravo leg-before the first ball, he was on hat-trick, but Darren Sammy avoided the hat-trick.
