KOTLA WITNESSES ROHIT-RAMPAGE AS INDIA CLINCH A EPIC WIN | IND VS AFG | CWC 2023
After starting their campaign with a victory, Team India took on the Afghans in a contest which promised to be an exciting one. The fans gathered to watch their favorite stars in action and Team India did not disappoint them as they delivered one hell of a performance.
Team India were put into field first, just like the previous game and the bowlers delivered some immaculate spells under the scorching sun. Jasprit Bumrah showed why he is regarded as one of the best in the world, as he picked up 4 crucial wickets on a pitch which had barely any assistance for the bowlers. His relentless attacking approach did not allow any respite to the opposition batters. Other bowlers provided great support as India restricted the Afghans to a total of 272 runs. On a pitch which had no support for the bowlers, India restricted their opponents to a fairly below-par score.
The run-chase started off with an astonishing display of ball-striking from Rohit Sharma. The Indian Skipper put on an absolute clinic by playing effortlessly strokes with an unparalleled grace. With Kishan playing the second fiddle, the Hitman truly unleashed his full potential as the duo put on an opening partnership of 156. Rohit finished on an astonishing score of 131 in just 84 balls which included a whopping 16 fours and 5 maximums. The duo more or less sealed the chase for the hosts, as Kohli & Iyer put the final touches. Team India makes it two out of two wins, and will look forward to taking all the winning momentum, as they march on to their next challenge.
