India defeats England 2-1

India defeats England 2-1

In cricket’s shortest format, India outperforms England just like they did in 2018. The Indian side won the series with a decisive score of 2-1, making it their second straight bilateral T20I series victory in England. On their way to the T20 World Cup, Rohit Sharma and company are doing well, so let’s look at the player rankings and a comprehensive analysis of the Indian team’s performance in this series.

Top Rank

Rohit Sharma (6/10): Captaining the Indian squad against the English on their home field was a difficult task, but Sharma overcame it. 

Despite having a strong start in each and every game, Rohit only managed to score 66 runs over the course of the Vitality T20I trophy’s three innings. His quickfire totals of 24 off of 14 balls in the first game and 31 off of 20 in the second game provided a solid foundation upon which the Indian batting team could expand. Although the skipper will be looking to fill the vacuum in the forthcoming ODI series, the team management must have anticipated more pyrotechnics from him.

Everyone was taken aback when Pant and Rohit were selected to begin the Indian innings in the match at Edgbaston. Rishabh Pant (5/10): He got Men in Blue off to a terrific start by scoring 26 points in 15 balls, but he was unable to repeat that performance in the championship game since he was eliminated extremely early. It’s time for Pant to move up and take his competition with Dinesh Karthik seriously. Pant has earned a lot of praise from coach Rahul Dravid, especially following his exploits in Whites.

Ishan Kishan (3/10): Ishan received a start in the first T20I at Southampton because the other Indian team members were given a break. 

Virat Kohli (2/10): The Indian public had high hopes for the Modern Master in this series, but all they received was disappointment. Kohli returned to the action in the second T20I after having a break in the first game, although he was unsuccessful in both contests. 

Lower Order

Deepak Hooda (7/10): It appeared that the batting all-arounder would now receive a lot of playing time with the Indian Cricket Team after scoring his fantastic century against Ireland a few weeks ago.

Ravindra Jadeja (6/10): From the second T20I on, Jadeja took Axar’s spot in the playing eleven and immediately put up a strong showing. India was in danger, but his pivotal innings of 46 not out from 29 balls saved them and helped them reach the manageable total of 170.


Bhuvneshwar Kumar (ten out of ten):

Bhuvi’s amazing ability to swing the ball in English conditions makes seeing him on England surfaces a delight every time.The Uttar Pradesh pacer’s position in the squad has now expanded to include mentoring the future pace sensations of India in addition to bowling. His fifth delivery in the first T20I’s opening over made headlines across the world because it sent English captain Jos Buttler for the Golden Duck.

Consistency in all we do in life can be the difference between success and failure (so long as it doesn’t include developing undesirable habits). It can be challenging to act consistently, especially if you have to perform the same thing every day since it might seem monotonous and repetitious. Playing the long game is one way to practise consistency. 

People might be reluctant to change when new habits need to be formed. It is never too late to put consistency into practise, especially if we desire to better ourselves and achieve our objectives years from now. To help you become more effective, seek advice from others, such as a life coach, as doing it alone might be challenging.
