In the second semi-final of the T20 World Cup 2022 between India and England, it was expected that Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul would do something special after recovering from poor form, but it did not happen. Both of them could not do much. After this 360 degree batsman Suryakumar Yadav also came and left without much fanfare. It was believed that he would prove to be the X factor in this match, but Adil Rashid spoiled the party.
Suryakumar Yadav, who came on the field after the dismissal of captain Rohit Sharma, hit a four and a six, then the Indian fans thought that the English bowlers would burn in the fire of Surya today. Adil Rashid, considered a golden hand for England, came and Suryakumar Yadav made a mistake. The sweeper got caught at cover in an attempt to hit a big hit on the ball bowled very cleverly.
In this way Rohit Sharma’s biggest weapon and the world number one batsman in T20 rankings returned to the pavilion. Suryakumar (14) hit a four and a six in 10 balls. He had scored 3 half-centuries in this tournament. Earlier, after losing the toss, England had decided to bowl first. However, Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli hit a half-century and Team India scored 168 runs.
