India Vs NZ Virat Kohli lost the draw again, this time against New Zealand, but showed courage. Kohli told the draw that his team will try to correct the mistakes made against Pakistan. But what followed was an aggravation of the same problems.
As in the past, India struggled to get off to a great start in T20 games. The batter cannot leave the ODI mode which means the team will be under pressure in the second half of the inning as he tries to set an important goal for the opponent.
The baptism factor weighed heavily on their heads as first-class drummers engaged in hara-kiri. The bowling alley was just as clumsy. One can only hope that this tournament is a turning point in the T20Is for India, as was the failure of the 2007 ICC World Cup in the ODI.
Here is Our Summary Of The India Vs NZ Team’s Performance:
1) Ishan Kishan
Ishan Kishan’s debut in the T20 World Cup was not unforgettable. The southpaw played the first test from Trent Boult and never seemed installed. However, he should have a better chance of becoming a fixture at the top of the team.
2) KL Rahul
Despite many promises, KL Rahul did not keep up for too long at crucial moments. He scored a lot of points in the IPL, but his racket stayed silent against high-profile opponents. He looks hesitant and unsure of his footwork and kicks.
3) Rohit Sharma
Rohit was the only Indian drummer who showed some courage at the head of the order. It seemed like a good move to protect him from Boult, but Rohit couldn’t take advantage of it. His rotation problems reappeared.
4) Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli was torn between dropping anchor or trying to accelerate from the start. He made 17 deliveries to get 9 points and was eventually fired for playing a wrong shot, a slog sweep against the ball he was spinning. Kohli would have expected more from him and his companions.
5) Rishabh Pants
It was also a forgettable game for Rishabh Pant. I just couldn’t walk with the club. Perhaps he could draw inspiration from the other teams’ heavy hitter’s book swinging on their back foot, sinking deep into the crease, tucking under the ball’s path, and then throwing the big boys. Just a suggestion.
6) Hardik Pandya
Pandya connects with very little and loses too much. He’s not at his best with the racket, he wasn’t even during the IPL and you have to ask the team management why he insisted.
7) Ravindra Jadeja
Jadeja showed courage with the bat, but she was absolutely unsuitable for a ball. It was hard to believe that Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner were performing on the same track that Jadeja was wrestling with at the time. Maybe she was still the dew!
8) Shardul Thakur
Shardul Thakur was expected to work miracles, but what happened was just the opposite. He didn’t have much of a chance to influence the game.
9) Mohammed Shami
Mohammed Shami went through a difficult time on and off the pitch. But it is time for India to start looking for specialized bowlers for the T20 format as well. Sami is not one of them and you shouldn’t expect him to give birth.
10) Varun Chakravarthy
He pulled out a cheap penny but never threatened to take a wicket. It was a difficult introduction to Major League cricket for the wacky.
11) Jasprit Bumrah
Bumrah stood firmly in the midst of the ruins. He did what he does. So he bowled with swing and rhythm and he picked two wickets for his he team. His comments on “bladder fatigue” at a post-match press conference say a lot about the mental state of Indian players.
