His rival, Babar Azam, the skipper of team Pakistan, who was also struggling with his form in the tournament, and has scored just 37 in the first five games, gained his form during the big day, as the former no.1 recorded half-century in a semi-final game against New Zealand on Wednesday, as a result Pakistan became the first team to qualify for the final.

And if India is planning to play final, then Rohit has to perform better in the game.

However, Indian batters especially Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav are in great form.

Kohli has already smashed three half-centuries in the tournament and currently the highest run-scorer in the tournament with 246 runs in 5 games at a strike of 138.98.

While the no.1 Suryakumar Yadav also lived upto the expectations and delivered exactly what he promised.

He was seen smashing the ball every corner of the stadium and maintained a strike of 193.97, and is the third highest run-getter in the competition, behind Virat Kohli and Max O’Dowd.

India’s vice-captain KL Rahul, who failed to perform in the first three games and scored just 4,9 and 9, respectively, bounced back strongly and struck two back-to-back half centuries to give confidence to the Indian dressing room that India is ready for the big challenge.
