‘Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul look intimidated and scared’: Pakistan amazing | Cricket

Team India’s openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul were not at their best against Pakistan. The two batters failed to spark a partnership in Sunday’s all-important game in the 2022 T20 World Cup. After Rahul was sacked by scoring just four runs, Captain Rohit quickly followed suit and left India faltering 10-2 in 3.2 overs. as they chased 160. Their immediate layoffs put enormous pressure on the middle order and the required run rate climbed. The men in blue soon lost Suryakumar Yadav and Axar Patel and at one point the score card only showed 31-4 in 6.1 overs.

However, India managed to win by four wickets, thanks to the exploits of Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya, who put together a record 113-run partnership and grabbed victory from the jaws of defeat. However, the 2007 champions’ victory didn’t stop cricket pundits and fans from raising the red flag over India’s openers at the start of the big tournament.

Former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar was critical of Indian openers Rahul and Rohit for failing to build a partnership. He criticized both for their extra cautious approach during the match.

India openers ki btw karenge, thore dabe lag rahe hai, thode dare-dare lag rahe hai. Rohit Sharma as captain apne monkey ko calm down kare, apni batting gawa raha hai aur KL Rahul jyada focus karke khudko fasa raha hai, wo na kare (India’s openers look intimidated and scared. Rohit needs to calm down as captain, his batting takes the brunt. KL Rahul gets stuck because of his extra focused approach, he shouldn’t),” said Akhtar on his YouTube channel .

Kohli was named Player of the Match for his sensational 82* runs on 53 balls. Fans went gaga over his power-hitting against fast bowler Haris Rauf. When it took 28 from just 8 balls, Kohli skipped two straight sixes in the 19th, bringing the comparison down to 16 runs in the last over. The former captain went undefeated and helped India come home in the latest-over thriller.
