On Saturday, June 22, Rohit Sharma once again struggled with the bat, getting out during the powerplay in India’s Super 8 game against Bangladesh. The Indian skipper had begun his T20 World Cup campaign on a promising note, scoring a match-winning fifty against Ireland. However, his performance has dipped since then, failing to meet expectations.

In the second game against Pakistan, Rohit managed only 13 runs, followed by a meager 3 against the USA. His Super 8 campaign began poorly as well, with just 8 runs against Afghanistan.

On Saturday, although he seemed to find his rhythm, racing to 23 runs off just 10 balls, he was dismissed by Shakib Al Hasan in the fourth over. Despite his brief stint, he thrilled the fans with a massive 97-meter six, hitting Shakib Al Hasan on the first ball of the over.

At the time of writing, India stood at 110 for 4 in the 12th over, with Hardik Pandya and Shivam Dube at the crease. Kohli, who had struggled throughout the competition, finally found his form, surpassing the 30-run mark but failed to capitalize big on it. The former Indian captain aimed to capitalize on this momentum and score big.

Team India is keen on winning this crucial match to strengthen their chances of reaching the semifinals. A victory against Bangladesh would almost guarantee their spot in the last four. Having already defeated Afghanistan in the Super 8, the Rohit Sharma-led side is confident of overcoming Bangladesh as well.

India’s path to the semifinals looks promising, provided they maintain their current form and capitalize on every opportunity. Fans and cricket enthusiasts are eagerly watching to see if Rohit Sharma and his team can secure their place in the top four and continue their quest for the T20 World Cup title.
