Rohit Sharma Tonks Australia Out Of T20 World Cup In A ‘Revenge’ Clash!

Cricketers and teams do not talk about taking revenge these days; otherwise, the faithful would have been tempted to describe India’s facile win against Australia in the Super-8 clash of the ICC Men’s T20 competition at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, as an act of revenge! Only six months ago, Australia outwitted Rohit Sharma and his band of men in blue to win the ICC 50 over World Cup in the final in Ahmedabad. The Sharma supporters would be thrilled that the India captain blasted the Australian bowling to smithereens to make a match-winning 41-ball 92 against the likes of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood.  Following the defeat, Australia under tremendous pressure, fell by the wayside against Afghanistan and bowed out of the tournament with the very ambitious South Asian team putting it across Bangladesh. With a clean slate, not going down in a single match five, India faces England in the semi-finals, a repeat of the 2022 semis in Adelaide; and on that occasion, England thrashed India by 10 wickets. The match at Clive Lloyd’s Guyana can turn out to be another high-voltage showboat of the T20 World Cup. The England batters, most of them of the explosive type, will go after the India bowling. It has to be seen if Sharma’s main weapon, Jasprit Bumrah, who had successful outings against Ben Stokes’s team in the home Test series, will rise to the occasion once again. With Australia out of the way, any team is capable of turning the cricket world upside down!
