Jasprit Bumrah was thrilled after India’s decisive victory at the Melbourne Cricket Ground today.
The biggest setback for India before to the start of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 was the withdrawal of fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah due to a back injury.
Bumrah, who was devastated that he couldn’t captain India’s bowling unit during a major competition, seems to have found some comfort in the form of a 4-wicket Indian triumph over Pakistan in Melbourne tonight.
The 28-year-old athlete used the social media site Twitter to share his joy at seeing one of India’s most thrilling victories. Even while Indian fans are happy with any victory over Pakistan, this one occurring in the tournament opener and in the way it did will stand out for a very long time, according to Bumrah.
Without regard to the opposition or the playing conditions, India will almost always choose to chase a 160-run mark with their present batting lineup. But Rohit Sharma and his team faced a different kind of test in the third Super 12 game of this World Cup. After the powerplay, India was reduced to 31/4 and needed 115 runs to complete their innings.
The equation worsened to the point that they needed 60 runs in the final five overs, making it an even greater struggle despite early indications of a rescue act from former skipper Virat Kohli and all-rounder Hardik Pandya.
India needed 48 runs in three overs because the Pakistani fast bowlers Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf did not allow any boundaries in their two overs. At this moment, Kohli struck three fours and three sixes, taking complete control of the chase and winning Player of the Match.
