- Indian Batting collapsed
Shikhar-Rohit Partnership has played a key role for Indian Batting throughout the tournament. Shikhar Dhawan with his 317 runs and Rohit Sharma with his 304 runs in 4 matches seemed to be unstoppable. However, Indian batting along with these brilliant hitters of the game failed miserably on the night of the finals. Rohit Sharma went on a duck and on the other hand, Shikhar Dhawan went back to the pavilion after scoring just 21 runs.
Captain Kohli who has been in an excellent form throughout the tournament failed to deliver in the finals. Kohli was dropped at 5 however in the very next ball Kohli was caught by Shadab Khan off Mohammad Amir’s ball. Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni, the stalwarts of the game failed to capitalize their innings as well. Except for Hardik Pandya, no other batsman was able to score over 25 runs. It was indeed a terrible day for Indian Team.
