A powerful display of fast bowling by Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah set the tone early on in Lucknow, leading India to their sixth consecutive victory at the ODI World Cup 2023. With an impressive start, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja also contributed significantly, thwarting England’s chase well before they could gain momentum, despite facing a relatively modest target of 229/9. India’s bowling attack was relentless and precise, as reflected in the six bowled dismissals recorded by their team.

During the innings break, the super soppers were deployed extensively, providing England with some hope for a successful chase. However, Bumrah and Shami delivered an exceptional bowling spell that left England reeling at 39 for 4 by the 10th over. Bumrah initiated the damage by removing Dawid Malan in the fifth over. Under the evening lights, the ball was occasionally skidding low, making batting challenging, compounded by the presence of dew. Malan’s caution proved futile as Bumrah altered his angle to round the stumps, ultimately getting Malan to play onto his stumps.

Joe Root faced a challenging delivery right from the beginning, as an inswinging ball kept low and struck him in front of the stumps. Despite a review, Root opted to leave the field with the decision. Mohammed Siraj struggled with his rhythm, prompting a swift change by Rohit, who brought in Mohammed Shami, immediately proving to be devastating. Shami’s impeccable line and length kept Ben Stokes confined to his crease, unable to find any scoring opportunities for nine consecutive dot balls. Stokes attempted to break free from the pressure but failed to connect with an angled-in delivery, resulting in his dismissal.

In the following over, Jonny Bairstow’s uneasy performance led to an inside edge onto the stumps, further plunging England into a precarious position.

Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali made an effort to rebuild England’s chase, but their progress was halted abruptly by a remarkable delivery from Kuldeep Yadav. In the course of his spell, Kuldeep managed a significant 7.2 degrees of turn on a ball, catching Buttler off guard as he attempted a drive through cover, only to miss the trajectory and see his stumps shattered.

Despite this setback, Moeen and Liam Livingstone endeavored to push the chase forward. However, Rohit’s astute decision-making intervened, recognizing the comfort the two batsmen found in facing Ravindra Jadeja. He promptly reintroduced Shami in the 24th over, resulting in an immediate breakthrough as Moeen edged a delivery behind, adding to England’s woes. Jadeja also joined the party, taking crucial wickets in the span of six overs, with England tumbling from 81 for 6 to 98 for 8. Shami and Bumrah eventually returned to seal England’s fate, bundling them out for 129 in the 35th over.

Prior to the impressive performance by the bowlers that made the target of 230 seem insurmountable, Rohit Sharma laid the groundwork for the score on an unpredictable Lucknow pitch. India faced a shaky start, losing Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, and Shreyas Iyer early on. However, a resilient partnership between Rohit and KL Rahul steadied the ship. Despite challenging conditions, Rohit maintained a brisk pace, reaching his half-century off 66 balls.

Liam Livingstone posed a threat with sharp turn, but the Indian pair managed to navigate his spell and capitalize on scoring opportunities. KL Rahul departed for 39, and Rohit fell to Adil Rashid after a notable 87-run knock, putting India in a favorable position. Suryakumar Yadav then contributed a valuable 49 runs off 47 balls, helping India surpass the 200-run mark. Before their formidable bowling display, Bumrah’s late flourish with the bat, adding 20 runs with Kuldeep, pushed India to a total of 229/9 in 50 overs, a significant 100 runs beyond what was necessary to dismiss England.

In summary, India scored 229/9 in 50 overs (with notable performances from Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, and KL Rahul, and notable bowling figures from David Willey, Adil Rashid, and Chris Woakes), defeating England who managed only 129 in 34.5 overs, with Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, and Kuldeep Yadav leading the bowling attack with impressive figures.
