Team India have started the T20 World Cup 2022 with a bang, defeating Pakistan and then the Netherlands in both their matches. Virat Kohli has been the biggest star for the Indian team in both these matches.
India’s top-order flopped in the match against Pakistan, but three Indian batsmen scored brilliant half-centuries against the Netherlands. The bowlers have backed up well and helped the Men in Blue make it two out of two in the T20 World Cup so far.
In this article, we are going to look at the three best performances by Team India players in the match against the Netherlands.
#1 Suryakumar Yadav – 51* off 25 balls
Before the start of the T20 World Cup, Suryakumar Yadav was the most prominent batsman of the Indian team. Suryakumar failed to make a big knock in the match against Pakistan, but he scored a brilliant half-century against the Netherlands.
Suryakumar came to bat at number four and scored a brilliant 51 runs off 25 balls. It was because of his innings that the Indian team managed to reach 179 runs in the allotted 20 overs.
This form of Suryakumar is the biggest plus point for the Indian team, surely there will be expectations of good performance from him in the upcoming match as well.
#2 Bhuvneshwar Kumar – 2/9 in 3 overs
After Jasprit Bumrah’s injury, the Indian fast-bowling attack was the subject of various discussions in the cricketing world. But India’s leading fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has performed brilliantly in both the matches of this T20 World Cup.
In the match against the Netherlands, he looked virtually unplayable. Bhuvneshwar gave away only 9 runs in three overs and dismissed two leading Dutch batsmen. In Bumrah’s absence, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is India’s most important fast bowler and his good form is surely making the Indian team even stronger.
#3 Virat Kohli – 62* off 44 balls
Virat Kohli has looked in a reliable form in T20 World Cup 2022 so far. After leading the Indian team to a thrilling win against Pakistan, Virat continued his brilliant form with a knock of 62 runs against the Netherlands.
Virat initially formed a good partnership with Rohit Sharma and then took the Indian team to 179 runs. Virat scored an unbeaten 62 runs in 44 balls with the help of three fours and two sixes.
Virat’s good form is very important for India and it makes the Indian batting look the strongest in the entire T20 World Cup.
