After suffering a humiliating loss to England by 10 wickets in the semi-final of the 2022 T20 World Cup, Team India decided to withdraw the competition. The all-rounder Hardik Pandya’s scorching performance of 63 off 33 balls was in vain since the opening batsmen for England, Jos Buttler and Alex Hales, chased down the total of 169 in just 16 overs. After suffering a loss, the team captained by Rohit Sharma has been receiving a lot of criticism for their performance in the must-win semi-final match, and this time, all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin has found himself in the line of fire of criticism. Former Pakistani spinner Danish Kaneria criticised Ashwin for his lacklustre performance and recommended that he limit his playing to the longer format of test cricket rather than the shorter formats.
“Ravichandran Ashwin shouldn’t have participated in the Twenty20 World Cup since he is not suited to perform well in the circumstances that are there in Australia. Instead, he should stick to playing test cricket.
When Virat Kohli was the captain of the team, he did the right thing by conserving Ashwin for only the lengthier format of the game.
T20 cricket is not his thing since, as an off-spinner, he is unable to bowl off-spin in that format “Kaneria stated this in a video that was published on his channel on YouTube.
At the Twenty20 World Cup in 2022, Ashwin did not have a very successful run. The all-rounder has only scored 21 runs over the course of six matches, but he has taken six wickets.
As we move on to the semi-final matchup, the team led by Rohit Sharma was given the opportunity to bat first. After 12 overs, they only managed to accumulate 75 runs and lost three wickets. After that, Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli grabbed the initiative, which ultimately resulted in a dramatic shift in the game’s overall momentum.
Pandya scored 63 runs off of 33 balls, and Kohli scored 50 runs off of 40 balls, bringing the team’s total score to 168/6 after 20 overs.
Later on, the pair of Buttler and Hales successfully chased down the goal of 169 runs in just 16 overs, despite no Indian bowler being able to take a single wicket in the process.
Chris Jordan was the most effective bowler for England, taking three wickets, while Chris Woakes and Adil Rashid each took one wicket. Chris Jordan was England’s outstanding bowler.
At this point, the championship match of the Twenty20 World Cup 2022 will take place on Sunday at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and will feature England against Pakistani. Pakistani
