India have lost at least one wicket in the first six overs in every World Cup match. India couldn’t get out of first gear when they crushed England in the Powerplay.
India started with the first ball but could not find any runs after that. The powerplay, which had been a terror throughout the tournament, swallowed India up once again. KL followed the usual pattern of getting out early at least one of the opening batsmen. Rahul fell in the second over. Kohli came soon after but the scoring was slow. India score 38 runs for the loss of one wicket in Powerplay.
England, who came out without the pressure of a big game, fell apart from the start. Openers Alex Hales and captain Jos Buttler made the Indian bowlers drink water. In the first over, England scored 13 runs including three boundaries against Bhubaneswar, the bowling well opened in the previous matches. The first six of the match came in Bhuvi’s second over.
In the power play itself, Axar Patel and Mohammad Shami, who came on as a bowling change, gave the score away, and India’s hopes were dashed. England scored 63 runs from 6 overs in Powerplay. India’s best powerplay score in the tournament is 46. It has to be said that Team India lost to England in a really lively Powerplay.
