International

ICC CWC 2023: It remains to be seen whether India will end their drought of not winning an ICC event in the current World Cup. But today in Lucknow, India ended the long drought of 20 years.

England surrendered helplessly to the power of the Indian bowlers at Ekana Stadium. After 20 years India won the World Cup by 100 runs against England.

After 2003, Rohit Sharma confirmed the semi-final ticket by defeating England in the 50-over World Cup. World champions England depart. Jos Butler’s performance in the remaining three matches will determine whether England can play in the Champions Trophy in 2025. The top seven teams in the points table of the World Cup will play that tournament. Pakistan will play as the host nation.

Rohit is happy with the man of the match award after leading the country in the 100th match. He said, in this match too, the cricketers of our team have set an example of character. The victory was assured as all the experienced cricketers stood up when needed. We won the first five matches by chasing runs. Today we faced the challenge of batting first.

According to Rohit, there was an idea about the pitch. Our bowlers are experienced. As a result it was important to reach a score like a fight. The batting was not very good. A situation like losing three wickets in the first powerplay is never desirable. But in that situation it was important to build a big partnership, we were able to do that. But then quickly lost 2 wickets including my wicket.

Rohit feels India needed 30 more runs. Still, Rohit was satisfied with the way the fast bowlers took advantage of the situation and bowled under control to contain England. There was swing and lateral movement. Rohit also praised the bowling balance of the Indian team. Along with the seamers, the spinners are also using the experience.

Rohit also urged his teammates to capitalize more runs for the bowlers to bat first in the next matches. He said, in today’s match, it was challenging to handle the new ball in the beginning. As the ball softens later on, it becomes difficult to rotate the strike. India’s next match is against Sri Lanka on Thursday at the Wankhede in Mumbai.
