INDIA vs ENGLAND: India beat Rumbling England by 100 Runs in Match 29 Of The Cricket World Cup 2023

India beat Rumbling England by 100 Runs in Match 29 Of The Cricket World Cup 2023

India’s bowlers dominated England in a masterful show under the Lucknow lights, winning by 100 runs and maintaining the host country’s spotless record at the Cricket World Cup 2023,

England held India to 229/9 in their 50 overs, keeping the match in the balance at the halfway mark in a ball-heavy encounter.

However, India’s brilliant pace attack crumbled against an out-of-form England batting lineup, as Mohammed Shami took 4/22 and Jasprit Bumrah took 3/32 to secure a comfortable victory.

In retrospect, it was Rohit Sharma’s 87, which kept India in the game as they lost wickets around him, and the captain was on the verge of a century before he was brilliantly caught at deep midwicket off the bowling of Liam Livingstone. Rohit Sharma’s 87 was India’s best innings of the day

Additionally, KL Rahul (39), Jasprit Bumrah (16), and Suryakumar Yadav (49), made sure the tournament’s hosts reached a score that provided the bowlers with a target.

With dew on the outfield to lessen the effect of India’s spinners, the reigning champions had a target of 230 to shoot for.

However, as soon as the first wicket fell, Jos Buttler’s team collapsed, losing all 10 wickets for a just 99 runs in a depressing performance that has them entrenched at the bottom of the table.

India now leads the standings by two points over South Africa, which is in second place, after their sixth straight victory.

India defeated England by 100 runs in match 29.

Rohit Sharma’s spirited charge saw an unaltered India take off after being sent into bat. As India amassed 18 runs off David Willey’s second over, he struck two sixes and a four.

Nevertheless, England recovered swiftly enough, as Chris Woakes nipped back in and overcame Shubman Gill’s defences in the fourth over.

One brought two when, early in his innings, Virat Kohli attempted a huge shot but misjudged the ball and gave Ben Stokes a catch at mid-off.

Willey and Woakes both made the most of the new ball, getting it to jiggle and beat the bat many times.

The scoring opportunities diminished for the Indian batsmen, and England lost another wicket after putting pressure on them.

Chris Woakes sent in a number of fuller deliveries to Shreyas (4) and the batsman looked for release when he saw a slightly shorter delivery, but the Mumbai batsman could only get it past the mid-on keeper.

KL Rahul then joined Rohit at the wicket, and together they steadied the innings as they picked pace between overs 21-30, adding 58 runs.

Rohit took the lead after reaching his fifty, hitting four fours and six in the next 20 balls. Just when it looked like India were going to take the game to England, Willey came back to the attack.

Rahul tried to drive down the track for a length delivery, but the ball went straight to Bairstow, who could only get it through to Bairstow.

The run-flow was maintained as Rohit kept going with a series of sweeps and pulls, but England kept coming back at the right time. In the 37th over, Rohit went for an expansive stroke and was caught off Adil Rashid.

The Story of England’s Disappointing Chase England’s reply began with a flourish as Dawid Malan made a fluent half-century.

Bumrah’s brilliant double strike then sent Root (0) and Ben Stokes (16) back into the dugout. Mohammed Shami then had Ben Stokes’s stumps rearranged as he removed him for a duck after ten balls, and Bairstow was then removed by Shami to leave India comfortably on top.

Kuldeep Yadav then had Jos Buttler out for ten from 23 to leave England still well off target and none of their top five in the middle.

England’s spin bowling all-rounders then pitched in to try and save the day and did so for a while, punching away at the ball for eight overs before Moeen Ali’s patient 15 from 31 was undone by Shami’s return to the wicket.

Shami’s first ball of the new spell was a peach as he nipped one in and found the edge. From that point on, England’s momentum was broken.

Chris Woakes drove down the ground and was stumped by Jadeja, while Liam Livingstone lofted a drive down the leg side but was lbw to Kuldeep, ending on a gutsy but unspectacular 27 – the highest score of the innings for England.

Shami and Bumrah, two of the world’s best fast bowlers, finished off the game in style, Shami removing Rashid and Bumrah using his trademark yorker to get Mark Wood.
