MumbaiIndia beat Afghanistan by 66 runs in the ICC T20 World Cup on Wednesday. Regarding this, the God of Cricket praised the batting of India’s opening pair Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. He said that I was very impressed with the way both of them started. In the third match, India’s batsmen, Rohit Sharma (74 runs in 47 balls), KL Rahul (69 runs in 48 balls), Hardik Pandya (35 not out off 13 balls) and Rishabh Pant (27 not out in 13 balls) scored. Because of this, the team had scored a huge score of 210/2 runs in 20 overs. Chasing this mountain-like target, Afghanistan’s team could only score 144/7 runs in 20 overs. He said, “The Indian batsmen played Afghanistan’s star spinner Rashid Khan very well, giving Rashid 35-36 runs in his four overs. Due to the brilliant batting of Rohit and Rahul, India won an important match. Posting a video on his Facebook page, Tendulkar said, “The Indian team desperately needed to win this match. He said that the partnership between Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya in the last 3.3 overs made the team score like a mountain. Tendulkar said, ‘I am more impressed with the way Rohit Sharma batted against Mohammad Nabi on Wednesday. Because Nabi is generally adept at throwing the ball as an out-swinger and Rohit had never played in front of him. He said, ‘What I liked best about Rohit today is the way he played off-spinner Nabi in-and-out (shots). His experience helped him in this situation. He played some good shorts with Rahul. This time he was playing, he seemed very calm.’ He also praised the Indian openers for stealing runs. Because they don’t appear to be doing so on most occasions. Tendulkar said, “It was really impressive to take the singer’s double run as the opening pair. One usually misses out on singles and doubles when thinking of hitting boundaries during the powerplays. But today it was not seen like this. Tendulkar felt that in the opening overs, Afghanistan would soon drop a couple of wickets for India by employing spin bowlers from both ends. Because spinners and seamers were expected to get help on the pitch. The God of Cricket said, ‘Afghanistan took wrong decisions from the beginning as they started with spinners in most of the matches. You can usually start with the spinners because of the grass on the pitch. At the same time, I can say that in this situation your fast bowler should have done well.
