Read on the application

T20 WC IND vs AUS: In the T20 World Cup, the Indian team has made a place in the semi-finals by defeating Australia. Team India played bravely against Australia, led by captain Rohit Sharma. The tone was set by an explosive opening and the Kangaroos were seen failing on every front. However, Travis Head once again raised the heart rate of Indian fans. But after some time he was also seen feeling lonely. Although all the players of the Indian team played brilliantly, a look at the five heroes of this win…

Rohit Sharma: Explosive opening
If anyone was the biggest hero of Team India today, it was captain Rohit Sharma. Once Rohit Sharma changed his gear, he never stopped. Although he did not complete his century, it was his aggressive innings that saw India cross the 200 mark. Rohit’s fearless shots against Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins gave the team’s batsmen a boost. Even Suryakumar Yadav admitted that Rohit Sharma set the pattern for him.

Arshdeep Singh: Early success
Even though India scored 205 runs, they knew that Australia were up and playing the pitch well. In such a situation, it was very important for India to achieve an early breakthrough and put the Kangaroos under pressure. This was done by Arshdeep Singh, who dismissed David Warner in the very first over. Warner wanted to glide that ball, but Suryakumar Yadav took a brilliant diving catch. Warner’s early exit prevented Australia from getting the start they could have won on.

Kuldeep Yadav: Maxwell’s wicket
Kuldeep Yadav was also an important hero of India’s victory. Kuldeep also bowled brilliantly in this match and took two wickets for just 24 runs in four overs. Both his wickets were big. Mitchell Marsh was playing aggressively. But even more important was the wicket of Glenn Maxwell. Glenn Maxwell was picking up the pace and like the last match he was leading his team to victory. However, like the last match, he failed once again. He wanted to go ahead and play a big shot off Kuldeep Yadav, but the ball hit his stumps. If India had not got the wicket of Maxwell here, the trouble would have increased.

Jasprit Bumrah: dismissing Travis Head
There was a time in the match when Travis Head stood between India and victory. Here Jasprit Bumrah once again shows why he is called the trump card for India. Travis Head looked to hit a big shot off Jaspreet, but his shot was misplaced and the ball hung in the sky. Captain Rohit Sharma stood under the ball and took a clean catch.

Akshar Patel: Catches, 13th and 15th overs

Akshar Patel was also the hero for India in this match. First he took an impossible catch of Australian captain Mitchell Marsh off Kuldeep Yadav. If Marsh had stayed there for a little longer, it would have been more difficult for India. After this, Akshar’s 13th over was also very important. Here he broke the bats of Travis Head and Glenn Maxwell. He gave only 3 runs in this over. As a result, the pressure increased on Maxwell and he was dismissed in the next over. Similarly, Akshar took the wicket of Marcus Stoinis for just six runs in the 15th over.
