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.
