India kept their hopes of entering the semi-finals alive after beating Scotland by eight wickets in the Super 12 stage match of the T20 World Cup showcasing off-road play. The entire match lasted 24.1 overs. India first eliminated Scotland by 85 in 17.4 overs and then won the match in 6.3 overs. This brought India’s net run rate over 1,619, which is the best among the six teams in the group. India had to hit the target at 7.1 over to outrun Afghanistan’s net execution rate plus 1,481.

KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma scored 70 runs in the first five overs. Rahul scored 50 of 19 balls and Rohit 30 of 16 balls. India’s 50 runs came in four overs, which is the fastest half-century of this tournament. The Indian batters together hit 11 fours and four sixes. India’s hopes of reaching the semi-finals, however, rest on Afghanistan, which will face New Zealand on Sunday. Afghanistan’s victory means that India will know how to beat Namibia. However, a New Zealand victory would knock India out of the tournament.

Watching Rahul hitting, you felt how hurt the Indian team is by these conditions and now they don’t want to hesitate to do what they have in their hands. Previously, the Indian bowlers, led by Mohammed Shami and Ravindra Jadeja, performed brilliantly, knocking Scotland out 85 in 17.4 overs.

Indian captain Virat Kohli won the draw and chose to bowl for the first time in the tournament on his 33rd birthday. Fast pitcher Jasprit Bumrah didn’t get Scotland off to a good start by pitching dangerously early in the spell. Bumrah also surpassed Yuzvendra Chahal (65 wickets) to become India’s largest land receiver in this format.

Starter George Munsi (24 of 19 balls) motioned for Bumrah to open his hand for a six on the square leg and a four off Varun Chakraborty. Scottish captain Kyle Coetzer (1) was thrown first by Bumrah and then with a slower ball. Mohammed Shami sent Munsi to the pavilion. Shami and Jadeja took three wickets for 15.15 runs. Jadeja fired Matthew Cross (2), Richie Berrington (0) and Michael Leask (21 of 12 balls).

Scotland’s score was 44 out of four after ten overs. After this, the Indian bowlers did not look back. Callum McLeod made 16 of 28 balls, after which Shami finished the innings. Scotland’s batsmen did not perform well even against weaker teams like Namibia and Afghanistan. For India, Ravichandran Ashwin took a wicket for 29 runs while Varun Chakravarthy gave 15 runs but did not get a wicket.
