Team India defeated neighbouring Bangladesh by 50 runs in the second match of their Super 8 campaign in the T20 World Cup 2024 tournament. This was Team India’s second Super 8 win and fifth consecutive win overall. Team India lost the toss and scored 196 runs with the help of an unbeaten 50 runs by vice-captain Hardik Pandya. In reply, Bangladesh could only score 146 runs for the loss of 8 wickets. In this way Team India won. After Team India’s victory, captain Rohit said that half-centuries and centuries are not needed in T20 cricket. Why did captain Rohit say this only after Hardik’s half-century? Such a question is arising. Let’s know what Rohit said.

What did Rohit say?

He said, “We performed brilliantly on both batting and bowling fronts. It is very important for 8 batsmen to play their role. So whatever. One of us scored a half-century (targeting Hardik) and we went up to 197 runs, I think there is no need for half-centuries and centuries in T20. It is important how much pressure you put on the bowlers”, Rohit said.

What did he say about Hardik?

Rohit reiterated his last reaction about Hardik and said, ‘I had said in the last match also that Hardik bats and puts them in a good position. After the first 5-6 batsmen play well, Hardik plays with his calculations. Hardik is Hardik. We know how capable he is.’ If Hardik’s performance continues like this, then we will be in a good position”, Rohit said.

Meanwhile, Rohit’s reaction to his half-century and century has nothing to do with Hardik’s half-century. But why did Rohit react only after Hardik’s fifty, this is raising questions on this occasion. Before Hardik, Suryakumar Yadav has scored 2 consecutive half-centuries in the last 2 matches from Team India.

Bangladesh Playing XI: Nazmul Hossain Shanto (captain), Tanzid Hasan, Liton Das (wicketkeeper), Tahhid Hridoy, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Zakir Ali, Rishad Hossain, Mehedi Hasan, Tanzim Hasan Sakib and Mustafizur Rahman.

Team India’s playing XI: Rohit Sharma (captain), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dubey, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah.
