This Brilliant inning Played In The Ongoing T-20 World Cup Won The Hearts Of The Fans: We have already been gifted with some breathtaking moments in the current T20 World Cup. Several bone-chilling fights have taken the excitement of cricket lovers to the limit. In the current World Cup, we have seen several innings where the batsman almost single-handedly led the team to victory. Like Virat Kohli against Pakistan, Marcus Stoinis, or Glenn Phillips against Sri Lanka.
But in this report, we will discuss some of the innings which were great but did not win the team. In the current World Cup, we have also seen several innings that saw the cricket experts applauding the cricketers. But unfortunately, that innings itself was not enough to win the team. Three such best innings are discussed in this report…
Lorcan Tucker (71 vs Australia): After the great win against England, many were watching the performance of the Irish in the match against Australia. But Ireland could not survive in front of the determined Ajivahini. Batting first, Australia posted a score of 189 runs in front of Ireland. Ireland won by 42 runs. Their embarrassment could have gone further but Lorcan Tucker’s innings of 71 off 48 balls saved the Irish. The Irish wicketkeeper hit 9 fours and 1 six against Cummins, Starc, and Hazlewood but did not get company from any teammates on the opposite side.
Suryakumar Yadav (68 vs South Africa): The Indian team has lost only one of the four matches they have played in the current World Cup. The poor performance of the Indian batting was blamed for that loss against South Africa. Suryakumar Yadav led India to a respectable score as the rest of the Indian batsmen performed poorly on the day. Lungi Ngidi, bowling on fire in tough conditions for batting, played superb innings of 68 runs with 6 fours and 3 sixes in 40 balls to take India to a score of 133 runs. But South Africa’s middle order performed so brilliantly that Surya Yadav’s brilliant innings ultimately failed.
Liton Das (60 vs India): Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan’s comments before the match against India broke the hearts of many Bangladeshi cricket lovers. Shakib said they did not come to win the World Cup and if they beat India it would be a disaster. Although the statement is somewhat true, such a statement before an important match is bound to affect the team’s mind. When India batted first and set a huge target of 184 runs in front of Bangladesh, the fans of the Indian team, especially the fans of Bangladesh, assumed that they would lose by a big margin. But it didn’t happen like that, one of the biggest reasons is the batting of Bangladeshi opener Liton Das. Lytton played a blistering inning of 60 runs off 27 balls, including 7 fours and 3 sixes, beating Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, and Arshdeep Singh, who were in the best form of the tournament. But rain interrupted the match and then a brilliant throw by Lokesh Rahul forced Litton back to the dressing room from there Bangladesh’s downfall began and they eventually lost the match by just 5 runs.
