The Indian skipper Rohit Sharma has been nothing short of spectacular in the T20 World Cup 2024. Despite a rocky start in the United States, he has found his rhythm, especially in the crucial matches against England and Australia. Following the early dismissals of key players Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant, Rohit anchored the innings with a crucial 73-run partnership with Suryakumar Yadav, stabilizing the team and putting them back on track.

One memorable moment occurred during the 13th over when Rohit signalled his intent to attack England’s Sam Curran. After Suryakumar launched a six off the first ball, Rohit, confident and composed, told his partner, “Upar dega toh deta hu na” (if he overpitches, I will hit him).

 

True to his word, when Curran bowled a fuller delivery, Rohit dispatched it over the fine-leg boundary, bringing up his half-century with an emphatic six. This assertive play helped India accumulate valuable runs, setting a competitive total of 171/7 by the end of their innings.

In the second innings, India’s spin duo, Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav, took charge. Each bowler claimed three wickets, effectively dismantling England’s batting lineup and quashing any hopes of a successful chase. Their combined efforts ensured India’s dominant performance and paved the way to the finals.

Rohit now has another opportunity to secure silverware as India faces an unbeaten South African team in the highly anticipated final in Barbados. This match is more than just a contest; it is a chance for India to end their long-standing World Cup drought. With both teams showing formidable form throughout the tournament, the final promises to be a thrilling encounter.
