In an exciting cricket match between India and England, Twitter erupted with joy as India secured a dominant 100-run victory in the World Cup. The win marked another step in India’s successful campaign, while England found themselves in a precarious position.
The match began with India facing a challenging situation after being asked to bat first. They lost early wickets, including Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli, and struggled to score, managing only 35 runs in the initial powerplay. Shreyas Iyer’s dismissal added to India’s troubles, leaving them at 40/3 after 12 overs. However, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul joined forces to stabilize the innings, taking India past the 100-run mark in 25 overs, with Rohit achieving a well-deserved half-century.
Just when things were looking promising for India at 130/3 after 30 overs, England fought back, dismissing both well-set batsmen, with Rohit falling just short of another World Cup century. Jos Buttler and his teammates continued to take wickets, putting India on the back foot. However, Suryakumar Yadav’s 49-run innings off 47 balls provided a crucial boost, helping India reach a total of 229/9.
With a sub-par total to defend, India’s bowlers, led by Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami, put on a remarkable display, reducing England to 40/4 within the first 10 overs. England’s hopes of handling spin better were dashed when Kuldeep Yadav produced incredible turn, leaving the defending champions struggling. The Indian bowlers maintained the pressure, taking wickets at regular intervals, and Ravindra Jadeja also contributed by removing Chris Woakes.
Ultimately, England was bowled out for just 129 runs, allowing India to reclaim the top spot on the points table. In contrast, England found themselves on the brink of elimination, with only two points from six games.
The thrilling match had cricket fans on the edge of their seats, and Twitter was abuzz with excitement as India’s clinical performance secured a crucial win in the World Cup.

This clearly shows that England was an unfair champion in the 2019 World Cup.
