India roared back to form with the bat thanks to a blistering opening stand between Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul: T20 World Cup

India came back to form with the bat today, posting 210/2 against Afghanistan in the 2021 T20 World Cup, due to a scorching opening stand between Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul.

However, Suryakumar Yadav replaced Ishan Kishan in the playing XI, and Rohit Sharma hammered 74 off 47 deliveries in an innings that featured eight boundaries and three sixes. Thus, KL Rahul joined him on the scoreboard, smashing 69 off 48 balls. Rahul had six fours and two maximums in his innings.

Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya were promoted to the top of the order to do some death-overs hammering, and they did not disappoint. Pandya blitzed 35 off 13 while Pant hammered 27 off 13. In 21 deliveries, the two combined for a 63-run stand.

Pandya cleared the ropes twice and smashed four fours, while Pant hit three sixes and one boundary. It was a pleasant difference from India’s previous two batting performances against Pakistan and New Zealand, when they scored 151 and 110 runs, respectively.

As a result, much has been said about India’s poor batsmanship thus far in the campaign. As a result, Virat Kohli’s team made a strong comeback, scoring the best total of the tournament so far.

“It’s the best wicket we’ve batted on in the last three games. The wicket looks better if the openers give you a solid foundation and that’s what Rohit and I tried to do. Very happy with the batting performance.” KL Rahul said

“We’ve played together for a long time. We understand each other, even with the running between the wickets and we have the freedom to go out there and play our games.” Rohit Sharma
