IND vs ENG Match Highlights


India Inning:

ENG won the toss and chose to bowl first. IND faced an early setback as they lost the wicket of Shubman Gill.

Following Gill, Virat Kohli faced 9 deliveries but was caught out without scoring any runs. During the powerplay, Team IND managed to score 35 runs while losing two crucial wickets.

Shreyas Iyer's poor shot selection once again let the team down as he returned to the pavilion after facing 16 deliveries, managing to score only 4 runs before being caught out.


The batting style of hitman Rohit Sharma underwent a noticeable transformation. This change in approach was observed after team lost three important wickets early on and considering the current situation of the match. Despite the challenges, Rohit Sharma displayed his exceptional skills by achieving a well-deserved half-century. He scored an impressive 51 runs off 66 balls, hitting 6 fours and 2 sixes along the way.

KL Rahul fell short in his attempt to hit a ball, much like Kohli departed early on. Prior to being caught out, KL Rahul managed to score 39 runs off 58 balls, including 3 fours.

Rohit Sharma showcased his exceptional batting skills and demonstrated his leadership as the captain, departing after a remarkable innings of 87 runs off 101 balls. With a striking display of 10 fours and 3 sixes, Rohit's performance was a testament to his responsibility for Team India. Although his departure is undoubtedly a setback. This highlighted Rohit's resilience and true captaincy qualities. Throughout his time at the crease, Rohit exhibited adaptability and the ability to adjust his game according to the team's needs and the situation at hand.

Ravindra Jadeja, the talented all-rounder, unfortunately fell victim to an lbw dismissal after contributing 8 runs off 13 balls to the team's total. Suryakumar Yadav, on the other hand, displayed excellent form but narrowly missed out on reaching a well-deserved half-century. He was caught out just 1 run short of his fifty. Suryakumar's exceptional innings consisted of 49 runs off 47 deliveries, including an impressive tally of 4 fours and 1 six.

Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav displayed unwavering determination as they stood their ground on the pitch. Bumrah contributed a valuable 16 runs from 25 deliveries, including 1 four. Meanwhile, Kuldeep Yadav remained unbeaten with a score of 9 runs off 13 balls, also hitting 1 four.

England Inning:

In pursuit of the target of 230 runs, England encountered an early setback as they lost four wickets. Dawid Malan was sent back to the pavilion by Jasprit Bumrah after scoring 16 runs off 17 balls. In the very next delivery, Bumrah struck again to dismiss Joe Root on a duck through leg before wicket (lbw). Bumrah's over was exceptional and resulted in no runs being scored. Ben Stokes, after facing 10 deliveries, was also dismissed without scoring any runs as he was bowled out by Mohammed Shami. Shami's maiden over was truly impressive. He continued to make an impact by taking down Jonny Bairstow (23) with his bowling prowess. During the powerplay, England managed to score 40 runs while losing 4 wickets in the process.


Kuldeep Yadav made a significant breakthrough by dismissing England's Captain Jos Buttler, who was only on 10 runs off 23 balls. In the next spell, Shami struck again and successfully got rid of Moeen Ali, who had scored 15 runs.

Ravindra Jadeja dismissed Chris Woakes, while Kuldeep Yadav managed to get rid of Liam Livingstone through a leg before wicket (lbw) dismissal.

In a remarkable showcase of his bowling prowess, Shami successfully dismissed Adil Rashid. Prior to departing the field, Rashid managed to accumulate 13 runs from 20 deliveries. 

Bumrah clinched the final wicket of England, dismissing Wood for a duck, thereby securing India's triumph over England.

Ultimately, India emerged victorious against England by a margin of 100 runs.

Team Analysis


The Indian team has been in exceptional form throughout the tournament, remaining unbeaten in all their matches so far. Led by captain Rohit Sharma, also known as the "Hitman," the Men in Blue have displayed their dominance both with the bat and ball. Their batting line-up, featuring the likes of Sharma, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, and Shreyas Iyer, has been formidable, consistently putting up challenging totals on the scoreboard.

In particular, Virat Kohli, one of the world's best batters, has been in exceptional form, accumulating 410 runs in his last seven matches. With his consistent performance, Kohli has become one of the highest run-getters of the tournament. His contribution will be crucial in determining India's success in the match against England.

On the bowling front, India has a formidable attack led by the experienced Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and the spin duo of Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin. The conditions at the Ekana Cricket Stadium, known to favor spin bowlers, could work in India's favor. Kuldeep Yadav, who has been in excellent form in recent weeks, is also expected to play a key role in stifling England's batting line-up.


England, on the other hand, has struggled to find their rhythm in the tournament. With four losses in their previous matches, the Three Lions have faced setbacks in their quest for the World Cup title. In their most recent match against Sri Lanka, England suffered a defeat, further denting their confidence.

However, England possesses a talented squad capable of turning the tables at any given moment. Led by captain Jos Buttler, the team boasts powerful hitters such as Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, and Ben Stokes. Joe Root, known for his stability at the crease, adds depth to England's batting line-up.

In the bowling department, England relies on the likes of Mark Wood, Adil Rashid, and David Willey to provide breakthroughs and contain the opposition's scoring rate. The team will need a collective effort from their bowlers to counter India's strong batting line-up.

Ekana Cricket Stadium Pitch Report

The Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow is renowned for its bowler-friendly surface. Spin bowlers, in particular, tend to dominate at this venue, receiving more assistance than the pacers. As a result, batsmen need to exhibit patience in the initial stages of their innings and look to accelerate later on. Considering these conditions, winning the toss and opting to bowl first could prove to be a wise decision for both teams.
