IND vs ENG: India Hit 6/6, Confirm in SemiFinal

IND vs ENG: India won a low-scoring match against England on the 29th of October in Lucknow. Rohit Sharma’s team scored 229/9 in the first innings, which was considered a low total. The Indian bowling team, however, was able to dismiss the English team for just 129 runs in 34.5 overs.

England lost four wickets within the first ten balls, including Dawid Malan (Jonny Bairstow), Joe Root, and Ben Stokes. The wickets of Jos Butlet, in the 15th and 25th overs, followed. England was 84/6 at the halfway point of their innings. The lower order failed to form a partnership as well, and the team was bundled out at 129 by the 35th over.

David Willey and his England bowlers kept India to 229-9 despite Rohit Sharma’s 87. This was a match that the defending World Cup champions had to win.

Willey, a left-arm fast, recorded 3-45, including Virat Kohli’s prized wicket for a nine-ball duck after England chose to bowl in Lucknow to try and hold on to slim hopes of reaching the semi-finals.

The fast bowler Chris Woakes and the leg-spinner Adil Rashed each took two wickets, and an energetic fielding performance, where players threw themselves about to stop runs, helped England look like a completely different team.

The 2019 Champions are bottom of the table, with four defeats in five matches.

Suryakumar Yadav scored a spirited 49 before becoming Willey’s third wicket, but the tail played the entire 50 overs.

Chris Woakes dismissed opener Shubman Gil for nine runs in the fourth over. England, which is at the bottom of the table of 10 teams, had chosen to bowl as they hoped to India win and maintain their slim chances of reaching the semi-finals.

Woakes added one to Shreyas (four), sending him back to the pavilion as India fell to 40-3 after 12 overs.

The Ekana Cricket Stadium will host India’s first innings. Both teams will use the same playing XI for the IND match. The last time these two teams played an ICC ODI World Cup game in India, it ended in a tie.

Rohit Sharma’s India will take heart from the fact that they are the only team to have not lost in this tournament. Indians will be especially happy with a victory over New Zealand in their last match, as they have been a thorn in their side in recent ICC tournaments.

India’s bowling, as well as its batting, were tested against the Black Caps, and they came out victorious. Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj, along with Jasprit Bumrah and other stars in the Indian bowling lineup, took the Kiwis to a total of 273 runs within 50 overs.

Virat Kohli’s and Ravindra Jagdeja’s valiant efforts in the batting section, despite losing two quick wickets following a solid partnership, enabled India to chase the total down with ease.

England has only won one match in their last five matches. They have only beaten Bangladesh (by 137 runs). New Zealand (by nine wickets), Afghanistan by 69 runs, South Africa by 229 runs and Sri Lanka by eight wickets were their losses. England will have it challenging facing the strongest team at this stage.

India Wins by 100 Runs

Bumrah delivers another short delivery on the leg stump, and David Willey pulls it towards backward square leg for a maximum.

Bumrah ends the match by destroying Mark Wood in the next over with a full low toss. He is out for a duck on the first ball, and England are 129 all-out in 34.5 overs.

India won the match by 100 runs.

Player of the Match

After the first ten overs, it was important to form a partnership with KL Rahul. The pitch was challenging, but it improved as the game went on. I’m a veteran, and it’s more than just going out and hitting my shots.

It is also about assessing the conditions and situations. I needed to form a partnership with KL. At the halfway point, we still had 20 runs to go.

The new ball made it difficult to bat against as the ball became softer. It was also challenging to rotate the strike. We were about 20-30 runs behind, but I’ll take the win.

Bumrah continued to bowl in the tight channels, and Bumrah’s back-to-back catches made early breakthroughs. Malan chopped, and Root was caught in front of the wicket.

Shami was almost unplayable after he got the ball. Stokes slogged his way out but to no avail as he left for a duck. Bairstow immediately followed. Bumrah and Shami bowled with top-notch pace.

England could not recover from this blow. Kuldeep bowled a ripper that wiped out Buttler. This was the decisive blow. All Indian bowlers, except Siraj, were relentless in their defence of 229 with ease.

IND vs ENG: Rohit Sharma After the Match

The squad showed a lot of character. All our experienced players stepped up when the going got tough and won the game for us. We had to bat here because of how our tournament went.

We were batting second for the first five matches. They bowled well in the first few overs. We just wanted to reach a score where we could have fun. Today, we could have been better with the bat.

Losing three wickets could have been better. In a situation such as this, you want to create a long partnership. We got it. I was one of the few who threw in at the end. All I thought about was being positive. The balls that were in my area, I wanted to throw them away.

That’s how to put pressure on the bowlers as well as the opposition. When I looked at the total, I thought that we were 30 runs behind. India’s new-ball bowling is something that you see only sometimes.

You have to get some wickets when you begin your innings to put pressure on the opposition. You can rely on our experienced seamers to make those important breakthroughs.

Our seamers achieved this. They took advantage of the conditions. They used a swing and a little lateral movement. They placed the ball in areas that would create doubt in batters’ minds.

I believe so. We have a good balance. There are a couple of great spinners, and our seamers have played in many conditions. The options are plentiful, and the experience is also high. It’s important to give the batters something to work with and then rely on them for the magic.

IND vs ENG: Jos Buttler After Match

Very disappointed. We were a little cocky at the halfway point when we chased 230 and saw how wet it was. I was curious to know if the dew would arrive. We chased because we felt it in our gut.

We’ve only been this good with the ball once throughout the entire tournament. We bowled well and took wickets. We would have been satisfied if you had said that we were chasing 230.

I wanted to soak up some pressure, get through this phase, and then build a partner and kill the momentum India had. It’s all about commitment and execution. There was no scoreboard pressure when chasing 230.

It’s all about getting through this phase. Whatever we do, it’s not working. Our answers could be written on a postcard. We need to catch up to our best players. The powerplay was excellent, with the players finding some movement.

There was also a little indifferent bounce, but the ground fielding worked well. The way we batted didn’t support that. (On Champions Trophy 2020 qualification) We’re aware that we still have a lot to play for.


India’s 59th World Cup victory surpasses New Zealand’s 58. Only Australia has won more (73). It is the first time that England has lost four World Cup games in a single row.
