Alex Hales was declared Player of the Match for his match winning innings of 86 in 47 balls.

The moment Buttler hit the winning run, England’s Barmy Army started jumping with joy and singing out loud as their team had made it to the grand finale, a repeat of the 1992 World Cup.

The three lions outplayed the men in blue in every department of the game. Rohit Sharma’s side needs to rectify the team’s overall performance in crucial encounters. It was one of India’s most humiliating defeats in this format of the game.

All the cricket fans in India were hoping that India would move into the final before the start of the proceedings. But cricket is a funny game; uncertainty always looms in this game.

It seems luck was with England, and everything went in their favour today. Jos Buttler won the toss and, without hesitation, asked India to bat first. The men in blue had a disastrous start, losing opener KL Rahul cheaply. The scoring rate of Indian batters was below par.

Kohi and Hardik Pandya accelerated the run rate.  Hardik played superbly, scoring a scintillating 63 in 33 balls. In the end, India just managed to score 168 runs in 20 overs.

It was the turn of the Indian bowlers to restrict the England batters below 168. However, both the openers from England had different ideas. Their approach was dominant from the start of the innings, and they shared 170 runs in partnership to win the match by 10 wickets.

Hales and Buttler hammered the Indian bowlers all around the park. Indian bowlers were looking toothless, and they were never looking to create any trouble. They cross the line in the 16th overs.
