The Indian team registered a comprehensive victory against England in the first T20I on Thursday, July 7 at The Rose Bowl in Southampton. They defended 198 runs by bowling out the hosts for just 148 runs. While the Indian batting and bowling attack did their job well, the visitors were guilty of dropping too many catches on the field.

India dropped as many as six catches in the second innings, giving several chances to the English batters. India’s wicket-keeper batter Dinesh Karthik led the chart with three dropped catches. Barring him, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Hooda, and Suryakumar Yadav also dropped a catch each.

Despite several opportunities being given, the Jos Buttler-led team failed to make the most of them. Ahead of the second T20I, the Indian team will be very pleased with their bowling and batting performance. However, the main focus will be on their sloppy fielding in the first T20:

Meanwhile, let’s take a look at how the fans reacted to India’s disastrous fielding effort in the first T20:

It’s something we aren’t proud of: Rohit Sharma on India’s fielding in the first T20I

The Indian team faced criticism for their sloppy performance on the field against England in the first T20I. Skipper Rohit Sharma accepted that their fielding wasn’t up to the mark. He said that the team will work on that aspect and return stronger.

“We were sloppy in the field-we should have taken those three catches. We want to set high standards; it’s something we aren’t proud of, but we’ll look to work on it and come back stronger,” said Rohit Sharma during the post-match conference.

The second T20I between India and England will take place on Saturday, July 9 at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. The Indian team is leading the three-match T20I 1-0, after a comprehensive victory on Thursday.
