Team India are playing against England cricket team in the second semi-final of T20 World Cup at Adelaide Oval in Adelaide. England captain Jos Buttler won the toss and invited Rohit Sharma and Co to bat first.
The Men in Blue didn’t approach the game with intent as they hardly made an impact in the powerplay overs. However, the likes of Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli ensured to dictate terms as the game progressed.
Although Hardik Pandya got off to a slow start, he ensured to tick the flow of runs at a faster pace in the fag end of the overs. He chipped in with 63 off 33 balls with the help of 4 fours and 5 maximums.
As a result, Team India ended up posting a challenging total of 168/6 in their designated quota of 20 overs. On the other hand, Chris Jordan accounted for three dismissals, giving away 43 runs in 4 overs.
Mohammed Shami makes a woeful fielding effort against England
Meanwhile, Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami made the headlines after he made a woeful fielding effort against England. It was because of his terrible fielding effort, England got four runs.
Mohammed Shami initially collected the ball and then threw it towards Bhuvneshwar Kumar. As it happened, he ended up throwing it slightly high and meanwhile, England largely benefitted from Shami’s woeful fielding mistake as they got four runs from it.
