India Crushes England by 68 Runs to Reach T20 World Cup Final

Dominant Spin Bowling Secures India’s Undefeated Run in T20 World Cup

India produced a comprehensive performance to thrash England by 68 runs and book their place in the T20 World Cup final. This victory sets up a mouthwatering clash against fellow unbeaten side South Africa on Saturday in Barbados.

Electing to bat first, India posted a competitive 171-7 on a slow and turning pitch. Rohit Sharma (57) and Suryakumar Yadav (47) laid the foundation with a crucial 73-run partnership before the spinners took center stage. Axar Patel (3-23) and Kuldeep Yadav (3-19) shared six wickets between them, dismantling a fragile England batting line-up.

England’s chase never got going as they lost key wickets early on. Jos Buttler (23) and Phil Salt (5) departed cheaply, leaving England reeling at 28-2 within the powerplay. The middle order offered little resistance, with only Harry Brook (25) managing a score of substance. India’s fielding was also sharp, with Suryakumar Yadav effecting a brilliant run-out to dismiss Liam Livingstone (11).

This dominant victory marks India’s revenge for their T20 World Cup semi-final defeat to England in 2022. It also extends their unbeaten run in the tournament and sends a strong message to their opponents in the final.
