Player of the Match: Arshdeep Singh

For his exceptional bowling performance, Arshdeep Singh was deservedly awarded Player of the Match. His early breakthroughs set the tone for the Indian bowling attack and put the Americans on the back foot.

Arshdeep Singh (Player of the Match): I’m really pleased with how I performed today. After conceding too many runs in the previous two games, it feels good to deliver a strong performance today. The support and backing from the management have been crucial, and I’m glad I could step up when it mattered. The pitch conditions were favorable for the fast bowlers, allowing us to generate some seam movement. I focused on hitting the right areas and exploiting the conditions to our advantage.

These conditions provided an opportunity for us to showcase our bowling skills and capitalize on the situation.

I had a chat with Jasprit, who advised me on the effectiveness of bowling yorkers on this pitch. In international cricket, having routines is essential. Sticking to my routines helps me stay focused and prepared for the game. It’s satisfying to see all the lowlers perform well, and I’m eager to carry this momentum into the upcoming matches.”

Fight Back of India in T20 World Cup 

In the nail-biting run chase for Team India, appearances on the scoreboard can be deceiving. Losing both Kohli and Rohit in the initial three overs, courtesy of Netralvakar’s dismissals, left India in a tight spot at 10/2. Despite a partnership between Pant and Suryakumar, the latter fell victim to a tricky delivery from Ali Khan that skidded low and dismantled his stumps.

During the middle phase, India’s batters opted for a cautious approach, focusing on preserving their wickets rather than aggressive scoring. Suryakumar Yadav showcased his ability to anchor a chase with patience, while Dube initially struggled but regained his form to navigate through a challenging period on a difficult pitch.

Eventually, India managed to clinch victory with more than an over to spare, overcoming the hurdles posed by the conditions.
