Dhoni’s bowlers are gaining confidence in this tournament and he will be extremely pleased with how well his opening bowlers have been with the new ball, a skill that has been lacking of late. The Ireland team played pretty well but defending Champion team India chased the 260 target in just 36.5 overs.
India have showed up in the World Cup with an attitude that can keep the demons away but cricket is a game where you are as good as your previous day. Rohit Sharma scored 64 runs and Shikhar Dhawan scored 100 runs off 85 balls with Kohli’s 44 runs not out. While at the time of bowling attack, Ravichandran Ashwin performed very nice and took 4 wickets including and got the Man of the match trophy.
So due to fabulous performance, Indian team net run rate is improved and Team India has finalized its post in Quarter final match round in ICC World Cup 2015.
Congratulations to team India!!!
