‘A voice was coming from inside me that…’
Jos Buttler stated following the conclusion of the match, ‘Very disheartening.While chasing 230 runs, we had a good chance, but then the old story repeated itself.I was uncertain about the dew; a voice within me suggested that we should pursue the target.We created strong pressure, bowled effectively, and took wickets.If you had told us that we needed to score 230 runs, we would have been satisfied.
Butler states, “Personally, I wanted to withstand some pressure, endure that phase, and then establish a partnership to halt India’s momentum.”It requires commitment and execution of your skills.In pursuit of 230 runs, there was no scoreboard pressure.It is about attempting to get past that phase.Regardless of our current efforts, we are falling short.
Butler remarked, “I believe our responses will be on a postcard.”There are a few elite players, but we are severely lacking the best.Excellent start to the powerplay, with the bowlers gaining movement.The ball bounced unevenly, but the ground fielding was excellent.Today felt like our day, but our batting performance cannot be supported.
Indian captain Rohit gave this statement
After the victory, the Indian captain Rohit Sharma stated, ‘I believe we displayed a great deal of grit in this match.All the experienced players played responsibly at the right time and won the match; we knew the pitch would aid our bowling and that we had experienced bowlers, so we aimed for a high score.
The Indian captain stated, “We performed poorly with the bat.”Not ideal is losing three wickets during the first powerplay.Then, you required a lengthy partnership, which we formed, but we subsequently lost wickets, including mine.Taking into account the big picture, I would have estimated that we were 30 runs behind.

After losing the toss and electing to bat first, India scored 229 runs for nine wickets in the allotted number of overs.India had lost three wickets for only 40 runs in the match.Following this, a 91-run partnership between Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul rescued India from its predicament.Rohit faced 101 deliveries and scored 87 runs with 10 fours and 3 sixes.Suryakumar Yadav contributed 49 runs to help India achieve a respectable position alongside Rohit.England’s David Willey took maximum three wickets.While Chris Woakes and Adil Rashid each achieved two victories.
