Suryakumar Yadav contributed 22 runs off 14 balls, and Ravindra Jadeja finished with an unbeaten 29 runs off 15 balls, ensuring that India concluded their innings in a commanding fashion.
Under Rohit Sharma’s leadership, the Indian team has enjoyed a spectacular World Cup campaign so far. Both the Indian bowlers and batsmen have excelled.
