No Indian cricket lover is still able to digest India's 10-wicket loss against England on the previous day. Everyone is in the same thinking that after all that went wrong that the team had to face defeat so badly in the semi-finals.
Today we will talk about those three players who were the biggest culprits in this defeat of India.
K L Rahul
Before yesterday's match, KL had scored two consecutive half-centuries, so the team had high hopes from him. But Rahul once again failed in the big match. He became the victim of Chris Woakes by scoring only 5 runs.
He lost his wicket in the second over of India's innings. After which Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma appeared under pressure. Due to this the team was able to add only 38 runs in the powerplay. Due to this slow start, India could not post a big score on a good batting pitch.
Where the spin bowler of the English team kept India's run pace in the middle over. In such a situation, the same was expected from Ravichandra Ashwin. But on the contrary, where Ashwin could not take a single wicket.
At the same time, he gave runs at an average of 13.50. Whereas in England's spin bowlers, Adil Rashid gave 5 runs and Liam Livingstone gave runs at an average of 7.50. Along with this, Adil also got the important wicket of Suryakumar. In such a situation, Ashwin's performance was disappointing in a pitch that looked good for a spin.
Captain Rohit was the biggest villain in this defeat. Where he didn't use the right bowler at the right time. He was already giving up on the field. Even after playing the same 28 balls, he could only score 27 runs.
When he wasted many crucial balls, he lost his wicket after staying on. It was expected that after playing so many balls, he would accelerate his innings in the middle overs.
