IND vs AUS Highlights 6-24-2024

Watch cricket video highlights of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 fifty-first match between India vs Australia. Venue of the match will be Gros Islet.

India is reached the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2024 thanks to Rohit Sharma. He was magnificent. However, he has been for a while due to his unwavering dedication to playing an offensive game at personal expense. It merits recognition, yet up until now it has only existed intangibly. Maybe it will take the form of an ICC trophy in five days. India’s skipper hit 76 of his 92 runs in boundaries on a beautiful morning in St Lucia, leaving Australia with nowhere to go. He even led them to make errors. Built on a string of unbroken records, 205 proved to be too much. It provided protection from Travis Head as well, which is practically unheard of in the current climate. Australia may yet advance to the last four, but first Bangladesh must do them a favor by defeating Afghanistan in St. Vincent later on Monday (by non-colossal margins).

He was meant to lead his side to victory on November 19, but instead he left with tears in his eyes. On June 24, when his opening partner and world-beating best friend Virat Kohli dropped for a duck, he had cause to think all that hurt may resurface. It’s possible that some people went backward. Alternatively, Rohit took Mitchell Starc for 29 runs in a single over. In the 5th over, he was 50 off 19 runs. Out of 13, the opposite end had supplied two. The lowest score at which a player in T20Is when ball-by-ball statistics is available reached a half-century was India’s 52. Rohit wasn’t having fun.

However, Australia worked perfectly in Rohit’s favour. For example, Starc never stopped filling up. It’s his sole occupation. Look for a swing. Strike out at stumps. That was the incorrect length, though, at Daren Sammy Stadium. There, Josh Hazlewood led the way. Throughout his whole stay, he only made two appearances, both of which were yorkers. He finished with a 1 for 14 record since every other ball was either on a length or just off of it. 24 times was Rohit invited to play his front-foot strokes, and he made 71 runs, including five of his seven fours and seven of his eight sixes.

In six of the eleven overs that Rohit bowled, the score reached double digits. He was batting in the same manner as when he is 200 not out in an ODI match. Getting on one knee and slogging it out to a six that thudded against the stadium roof, stunning Pat Cummins, who had two hat-tricks going into this game. Arriving at the additional cover to slap Marcus Stoinis on the rise, descending the track with the deadly smoothness of water cascading down a rock. A new song has been added to the playlist after attempting a version of the scoop and ending up with a version of the pull. In the end, he was benefiting from all he was doing. There was an aura to even a defensive drive to cover, which caused Australia to misfield and give up a second run.

At the crease with Rohit in the middle, India struck ten fours and ten sixes. They could manage only nine between them when he collapsed. For that, Starc deserves recognition. Returning in the twelfth over, he changed his stance around the wicket to prevent Rohit from using his arms freely. Although he still went full, he took speed off this time, which was significant enough to make a difference. Broken stumps and a bat unable to make contact with the ball.

Suryakumar Yadav, who was in the middle of his own masterclass and scoring runs in ways that weren’t necessarily logical, was also dismissed by Starc’s slower delivery. Once more, a ball that was near to the wide line wound up on the square-leg boundary, making Cummins the unfortunate receiver. Between the 15th and 18th overs, India went 21 deliveries without a boundary, but they staged a last-ditch effort when Hardik Pandya hit three sixes in the last two overs to take the score above 200.

David Warner might be playing his final international match when he fell in the opening over of the chase. He scored six runs off of six balls. But there were still hitters in Australia who could dictate terms. Arshdeep Singh was bowled out for two fours and a six by Mitchell Marsh in an over, and Head even outperformed him by hitting Jasprit Bumrah off the length of the new ball he usually bowls. That forced the Indians to quickly switch to their backup plan, yorkers, and even he bowled a full delivery and missed one while under duress. Australia outscored India by five runs at 65 for 1 to end the powerplay. The script had been turned by Marsh’s power play and Head’s amazing ability to clear his front leg and open up huge areas of the outfield on both sides.

Something unique was brought to India in the shape of Axar Patel. It felt like a mistake to be a few yards off the fence at deep square leg, especially since it was Marsh on strike. With his bat, the slog sweep sailed off. Level. Hard. Said to be headed for six. Even a support staff member was hiding out of concern that it might outshine the fielder. However, Axar forbade it. Leaping to his feet, he grabbed it with both hands, using just his right. It was an instance when it had to endure, and it did. To celebrate that wicket, all of his teammates went up to him. The partnership of 81 off 48 was broken against the flow of play.

Glenn Maxwell was hard at work countering the edge India have because of their superior spinners. When he noticed that Ravindra Jadeja had nobody on the boundary at third man, he decided to go for a reverse sweep. This meant that he was hitting with the turn but against the wind, which presented a serious issue when it was strong enough to practically carry Hardik away as he was running in to bowl. Somehow, Maxwell’s wrists overcome it. He appeared to be dangerous. Perhaps sufficient to defeat Kuldeep Yadav.

He was bowled after charging at India’s wristspinner. That thing ought to be framed and hanging on a wall. Maxwell was messed up in so many ways by it. It wasn’t moving as quickly as he had hoped. It was not as long as he had needed. It made the complete opposite turn. And it created a mess on his stumps. It was all about the ball’s dip. In the next three overs, India struck twice, with Bumrah smashing Head with his offcutter. Australia’s greatest chance, needing 53 from the final 18, was to narrow the margin of loss.
