Initially, Rohit appeared a bit tentative, but he quickly adapted to the conditions. He batted with caution, ensuring he kept the run rate in check while also putting pressure on the England bowlers. His innings featured some exquisite shots, and he maintained a steady flow of runs, keeping India in a strong position.

However, Rohit’s promising innings was cut short by England’s leg-spinner, Adil Rashid. On the fourth ball of the 14th over, Rashid bowled a googly that Rohit tried to hit out of the park. The ball stayed low and went under Rohit’s bat, rattling the stumps. His dismissal at a critical juncture brought England back into the game.
