NEW YORK: India handed Afghanistan a target of 182 runs to chase at Bridgetown, where their bowlers meticulously controlled the game, securing victory long before the final over.

Here are the significant takeaways from India’s performance at the Kensington Oval:

Suryakumar Yadav’s Dominance: Suryakumar Yadav continued his impressive form with a second consecutive half-century in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, striking at nearly 190.

His impactful innings, anchored between the seventh and fifteenth overs, showcased his ability to control the game when it matters most for India.

Middle-Order Resurgence: Despite a sluggish start by Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, India’s middle-order flourished.

Every batter from three to eight contributed positively with decent strike rates, exemplified by Hardik Pandya’s crucial 32 off 24 balls.

This opportunity to settle into the tournament bodes well for India’s aspirations in the Super Eight stage.

Jasprit Bumrah’s Brilliance: Jasprit Bumrah’s exceptional bowling performance, claiming 3/7, dismantled Afghanistan’s chase effectively.

His consistent wicket-taking ability reaffirms his status as a game-changer for India in crucial moments.

Rashid Khan’s Challenge: Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan posed a formidable challenge, underscoring his stature as one of the premier spinners in T20 cricket.

Despite India’s strong batting lineup, Rashid Khan’s disciplined bowling, highlighted by figures of 3/26, kept his team in contention, setting the stage for future matches against Australia and Bangladesh.

India’s comprehensive victory not only secured their progression but also highlighted their depth and resilience, essential qualities as they advance deeper into the tournament.
