Rohit Sharma continued his fine form and aggressive approach in the ongoing India vs. New Zealand match, scoring 46 runs from 40 deliveries, including four boundaries and four sixes.
In the ongoing 21st match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, India and New Zealand are clashing at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala. Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to field first. This decision was justified by Mohammed Shami, who delivered a stellar performance with his third career five-wicket haul.
In the second innings, the skipper continued his impressive form by swiftly scoring 46 runs off 40 deliveries, featuring four boundaries and four powerful sixes. Right from the first over, Rohit Sharma made his intentions clear, hitting a boundary off Trent Boult’s second ball. In the second over, he showcased his aggressive approach by stepping down the track and launching Matt Henry for a massive six over long-on.
Rohit and Shubman Gill provided India with a solid opening partnership as they chased 274 runs. The duo, displaying an array of boundaries, contributed 71 runs for the first wicket. However, their partnership was disrupted when Lockie Ferguson bowled out Rohit for 46(40). Shortly thereafter, the pacer dismissed Gill for 26(31).
In the first innings, New Zealand appeared to be heading towards a big total with Daryl Mitchell and Rachin Ravindra’s 159-run partnership. India’s seamers started strong, and Shami took a wicket with his very first ball. However, India’s lack of a sixth seamer forced them to rely on spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja, who were expensive. Ravindra and Mitchell’s partnership was finally broken in the 34th over when Shami dismissed Ravindra for 75 off 87 balls. Mitchell went on to score a century.
India eventually staged a comeback, and New Zealand was bowled out for 273 runs.
