49 off 11 balls
Not to mention another player’s game as well. Ben Stokes. Ben Stokes has proved that this is the normal game. Stokes, who has never been sober in the Indian series, proved it yesterday. It will be recalled that Stokes had revealed a similar game in the last IPL series.
அப்பாடி… ..என்ன அடி
Tearing up the bowling of the Indian team players Ben Stokes Hung up. Stokes, who has been in action since coming on the field, was out for 99 off 52 balls. This includes 10 sixes and 4 fours.
The thing to note about Ben Stokes is that Stokes, who hit a fifty off 40 balls, piled up 49 off the next 11 balls. 6,6,6,1,6,4,2,6,6,2,4, Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled close to Stokes’ century, which whitewashed Indian bowling. There is no denying that Stokes deserves the man of the match award.
Stokes for the 2nd wicket, Burstow The Alliance added 175 runs. Burstow, Roy added 110 for the opening wicket. It was these two partnerships that brought success.
Jason Roy gave the England team a dramatic start. Jason Roy scored 39 of the 59 runs scored by England in the Powerplay. Burstow Jason Roy smashed the Indian bowling while playing casually in the beginning. Prasidh Krishna flew fours in the Bhubaneswar over.
Burstow and Jason Roy have formed a partnership of over 100 runs for the 13th time in an international tournament. This is the most common pair of England players. These 3 players are fully responsible for the success of the England team.
The reason for the success!
Another reason for England’s success is the pitch. Pune pitch is the most, most exciting favorable pitch for batsmen. It may be recalled that the Indian team chased over 340 runs on the same pitch 4 years ago.
Even if the Indian team had scored 400 runs on a pitch favorable for such batting, it could have been chased by a world-class England team.
The 336 runs added by the Indian team is definitely not a bad score. But with 39 balls to spare, England can easily chase 336 runs with nothing left on the field.
The same story would have happened in the last first match and the same story would have happened to the Indian team. However, after the first wicket fell, England lost the match without losing a single wicket in the middle order. They also lost 10 wickets for a paltry 116 runs.
But, don’t make that mistake in this match. The England team, which played carefully without losing wickets quickly, was able to easily touch the victory.
The England team also performed somewhat well in bowling. In particular, Moin Ali bowled 10 overs, giving up only one four and giving away 47 runs. Samkaran, Doble and Rashid all took wickets despite conceding just 6 runs.
Game plan clarity
The England team’s “game plan” is clear. Their plan is to win the T20, or any one-day match, by scattering the opponent’s plans and confusing them. They show it in every match. Captain Morgan insisted on the same thing during the defeat in the last match.
The Indian team hit a total of 34 sixes and four fours in the match. But, if the England team had hit these 34 fours and sixes in 34 overs, the game would have been so outrageous. Overall, the England team has given a strong retaliation. The Indian team has been warned to set the target carefully in the next match.
David Malan was unbeaten on 16 and Livingstone on 27. England won by 337 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in 43.3 overs.
Awful Indian team
Kuldeep Yadav and Kurnal Pandya are both pathetic in the Indian team. The duo together have given the board 156 runs without taking any wickets.
Bowling inexperienced players on pitches like this that do not help bowling will shatter the little confidence they have.
There is no point in criticizing this game as far as the Indian team is concerned.
The biggest setback was the loss of Rohit Sharma, Thawan, early in the innings. Lined up without adding runs in the powerplay, the goalie and the Rahul alliance played patiently as two wickets fell and the run pace slowed.
This score would not have come if Rishabh, Rahul and Hardik had not played in action last time. Ishant Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav may have fielded batsmen like Thawan, Kuldeep and Kurnal Pandya.
The goalie must also focus on the selection of players in the last game. Natarajan, Washington, Ishant Kishan, Suryakumar and Siraj should be given a chance as they are ready for the next stage without giving a chance to Thawan, Kuldeep and Kurnal Pandya who are not in form.
The score of the Indian team on such a pitch will not be enough. It would have been a challenge if he had scored an additional 50 runs.
The Indian team was able to take the victory easily as they took wickets in the first match. It was very difficult to take wickets in this match and after stumbling for a long time without taking a wicket, the victory flowed to England. It was a pity that Captain Collie was squeezing his hand and biting his nail while Burstow was smashing Stokes.

Rahul Kohli Alliance
KL Rahul batted for the 3rd wicket and joined the goalie. Both relaxed runs together to rescue the team from the slump. When the goalie added 35 runs, wicketkeeper Butler missed a catch in Rashid’s bowling.
Batting patiently, Virat Kohli completed his 62nd fifty off 62 balls. In collaboration with Kohli, Rahul also batted consistently and completed his fifty off 66 balls.
Rashid caught Butler in 32 overs and the goalie was dismissed for 66. In international cricket, Rashid bowled for the ninth time. Rahul and Kohli split for 121 for the 3rd wicket.
