Indian cricket fans are heartbroken once again. Pakistan defeated India in the final of the ACC Emerging Asia Cup. The final match was played at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, where the Pakistan A team won the title by defeating India A by a huge margin of 128 runs. Team India, which was considered to be the favorite to win the title, had a huge target of 353 runs, in response to which the entire team was reduced to a score of 224. Defeat in the final is really a big defeat, but if that defeat is against Pakistan then it really stings a lot. India A, captained by Yash Dhull, was unbeaten in the entire tournament, but in the decider, arch-rivals Pakistan decimated India.
Neither the bowlers nor the batsmen of India A worked… Let’s try to know that due to which last reason India A had to face defeat.
The first reason for the defeat of the young Indian team was to choose bowling after the toss. Captain Yash Dhull won the toss and invited Pakistan to bat first. It is not hidden from anyone that the pressure of the final match is different. Even after this, Dhull chose to bowl first. As a result, Pakistan blew the Indian bowlers to pieces. Pak team scored 352 runs for 8 wickets in 50 overs. Apart from this, Yash did not even get the full 10 overs of his quota from any bowler.
Rajvardhan Hangergekar’s no-ball was the second reason for the defeat.
In the fourth over of Pakistan’s innings, young fast bowler Rajvardhan Hangergekar bowled a big no-ball. Pak opener Saim Ayyub was bowled on this ball, but due to the no-ball, he got a big life. At that time Saim was batting on a personal score of 15. Ayub took full advantage of the lifeline he got and got out after scoring 59 runs in 51 balls. He added 121 runs for the first wicket with Sahabzada Farhan, which overshadowed Team India. Hangekar took 2 wickets for 48 runs in 6 overs in the match.
The third and biggest reason for India A’s defeat was the poor batting of the middle order. None of the India A middle-order batsmen could take responsibility for the team. Nishant Sindhu (10), Riyan Parag (14) and Dhruv Jurel returned to the pavilion after scoring 9 runs. Earlier in the semi-final played against Bangladesh, the middle order batsmen surrendered. India batted first against Bangladesh and the entire team was bundled out for 211.
In this match, top order batsmen Sai Sudarshan and Abhishek Sharma definitely got a good start, but they could not convert it into a big innings. Although the middle order had a great chance to prove themselves in the match, but all the players accepted defeat. Nishant Sindhu (5), Riyan Parag (12) and wicketkeeper Dhruv Jurel went on to score only 1 run. Even in the final, he did not correct his mistake.
