T20 World Cup Semifinal 2022: The performance of the Indian team in the T20 World Cup (T20 World Cup 2022) has been very good. But the team captain Rohit Sharma’s bat appeared mostly calm in the group stage matches. He scored 53 runs in the match played only against the Netherlands. Apart from this, he has failed to play big innings consistently. Taking a dig at Rohit’s poor form, former Indian player Sunil Gavaskar said that perhaps he is saving runs for the semi-finals.
Saving runs for the knockouts
Sunil Gavaskar while talking about Rohit Sharma to India Today said, “Hopefully Rohit Sharma is saving runs for the knockouts. They are going to be big matches.” Rohit has so far scored a total of 89 runs in five matches of this T20 World Cup at an average of just 17.80. During this his strike rate has been 109.87. The Indian team will play its semi-final match against England at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday, November 10.
How many runs scored in which innings?
As captain, the responsibility of Rohit Sharma increases. However, as a batsman, Rohit is not able to fulfill his responsibility well. He scored 4 runs in 7 balls in the first match of T20 World Cup played against Pakistan. After this, while playing against the Netherlands, he played an innings of 53 runs. At the same time, in the match played against Africa, Rohit proved to be unsuccessful in playing a big innings. In this match, he played an innings of 15 runs in 14 balls.
At the same time, even in the last two matches of Super-12, Rohit’s bat was silent. He scored 2 runs in 8 balls against Bangladesh and 15 runs in 13 balls in the match played against Zimbabwe.
