ICC World Cup 2019: Rohit, Chahal Star in India’s easy win

Rohit Sharma, on Wednesday, won his glorious win with six wickets as South Africa as his World Cup opener.

In this successful innings of 228 runs for the Indian vice-captain (122 not out of 144 balls), there was a situation that was not well suited for the free-floating strokeplay. India can take 47.3 overs to complete the chase, but once they were not in any kind of trouble.

Jaspreet Bumrah (10-1-35-2) started a scary start, while Leggie Yuswendra Chahal (10-0-51-4) displayed his guild in the middle overs, making him an equal contribution in the victory of India . It helps that a bowling attack with a lone ranger in Kagiso Rabada (10-1-39-2) could not defend the totals of 227 runs, but no one can remove the fact that the extra Due to bounce conditions remained completely. Discomfort for most established batsmen

Everything was wrong from the beginning for South Africa because Captain Faf du Plessis first surprised everyone by deciding to bat and then dropped Rohit into the slip when he was barely able to get off the mark. In total, he scored 13 fours and two sixes. The Indian opener was given a second time in the end to pursue with David Miller, who left a regulation catch.

Both occasions were bowlers Rabada, whom the Indians played with caution when attacking others. Without Dale Steyn and Lungi Nugidi, it would be difficult for a second stringer attack to stop Indian batsmen. The weak link was two spinners, Shamsi (0/54 in 10 overs) and Imran Tahir (0/58) in 10 overs, on which Indian batsmen invaded.

Due to not being under pressure in the scoreboard, Rohit and KL Rahul shared a 85-run partnership and later Rohit and Dhoni, who could score 74 runs, waited for loose balls. Earlier, Chahal took four wickets, so that India restricted South Africa to test scores in sub-par score.

Bumrah has decided to bat in the stormy conditions of du Plessis with Twin Move in his opening spell. Chahal then screwed up the South African batsmen because they could not really run fast in the middle overs. Incidentally, this was a single spell (in terms of wickets) of the best 10 overs taken by any bowler in the World Cup game.

South Africa’s total was mixed with respect to courtesy of Chris Morris (42 runs for 34 runs) and Rabada (unbeaten 35 runs), who scored an important partnership of 66 runs for the eighth wicket. In place of Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (10-0-44-2) performed brilliantly in his second spell.

Under a thick cloud cover and a pitch that offered a bounce, Bumrah was superb in his opening five overs, where he pitch on a good length or back, leaving the delivery oddly back and the opener De Coke and Hashim got away from Amla. Bumrah hit Amla (6) on a beautiful ball, which lifted above the outside of the off-stump and reduced the outside edge in the slip by Rohit Sharma.

De Kock (10) was out in his next over when delivery came from behind his back and left-handed slash was given to Captain Virat Kohli in the third slip. Captain du Plessis (38 runs off 54 balls) and Rassie van der Dussen (22 runs in 37 balls) added 44 runs for the third wicket, but the consolidation work was more because they were difficult to score.

Power Play scored only 34 runs, and even though the Proteas captain made four fours, but he never looked comfortable. The third seamer Hardik Pandya (6-0-31-0) also hit the length and length of one of his companions, a bad sniper, du Plessis flushed the gloves, which caused them pain. With Kedar Jadhav (4-0-16-0), he shared the duties of the fifth bowler in a shared form and scored only 45 runs.

Once Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav (10-0-46-1) started working together, then there was always waiting for something to happen.
