“When we were in UAE for the Asia Cup, Nobody talked about the (Umran) Malik guy, who had clocked 156kph..”, Waqar Younis makes a remark on Team India’s T20 World Cup defeat

Rohit Sharma and Co were absolutely battered and bruised at the hands of Jos Buttler-led England cricket team at Adelaide Oval in Adelaide. The Men in Blue literally ran short of ideas while trying to restrict England in the run-chase.

Batting first, India could post 168/6 in their designated quota of 20 overs. Hardik Pandya added a dimension to the team’s batting attack as he scored 63 off 33 deliveries, smacking 4 fours and 5 sixes. 

On the other side of the coin, Chris Jordan succeeded in taking three wickets to his name. In response, England batters absolutely dominated the game with ease as they won the game by 10 wickets.

Indian bowlers were clueless throughout the game as they failed to take even a single wicket in the second semi-final. Alex Hales scored 89* whereas Jos Buttler sored 80 runs respectively.
