After the stormy innings of David Malan (77), England played the third and final T20 on Sunday due to the superb bowling of Reece Topley (3 off 22), David Willey (2 off 40), and Chris Jordan (2 off 37). In the match, India was defeated by 17 runs. With this win, England stopped Team India from a clean sweep.

India won the T20 series by 2-1. Batting first, England scored 215 for 7 in 20 overs. In reply, India scored 198 runs for nine wickets in 20 overs due to the smoky innings of Surya Kumar Yadav (117). Virat Kohli could only score 11 runs.

Suryakumar Yadav scored his first century

Suryakumar Yadav scored his first century in his international career. He scored 117 runs in 55 balls with the help of 14 fours and six sixes, although he could not win the team. But due to his innings, the Indian team was saved from losing badly. Earlier, fast bowler Umran Malik became the fourth most expensive Indian bowler by conceding 56 runs in four overs.

Rohit’s big statement after the match

Rohit Sharma praised the entire team after the match. At the same time, he praised Suryakumar Yadav fiercely. Rohit said, ‘I think it was a great chase, although we missed. I am proud of the team. It was wonderful to see Surya. I have been seeing him for some time now. He likes this format and has a wide range of shots. Ever since we included him in the team, he has grown from strength to strength.

England had given a big target

Rohit said, ‘He put pressure on us with his batting. Good partnership put us on the back foot. We were clear on trying the players if they can bowl four overs. We have things to do as a team. So far things are pretty good. We want to do better in every match. Today was a big lesson for us to come out to bowl and bat as well. Such matches will teach you.’

Celebration of 75 years of independence

Preparation for the match between India and world XI. On the occasion of the completion of 75 years of the country’s independence, the Indian government can organize a cricket match between Team India and World XI. According to sources, the Central Government has sent this proposal to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). This match can be done on 22nd August.

The Ministry of Culture has placed this proposal before the Board, it has also been urged that the board should try to feed the top cricketers of Team India in this match. The board is discussing this proposal. BCCI sources said that 13 to 14 players would be needed to prepare the World XI and for this their availability information would have to be obtained. During this, domestic cricket will continue in England and the Caribbean Premier League will also take place. This will make the availability of players from England and the West Indies a bit difficult.
