India-England broke all records of sixes ( Updated )
India and England are showing what power heating is. Scores of 300 are seen in every match. India scored 336 in the second ODI of the series but could not prove the score safe. It took England only 43.3 overs to score 337 runs. Today, in the third ODI, India saw a terrible batting collapse towards the end. However, the host team scored 329 runs.
The batsmen of the two teams are not allowing any score to feel safe in the game of the best two teams arguing in limited-overs. On the one hand, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya are attacking the bowlers. Meanwhile, Johnny Bairstow and Ben Stokes are competing to lose the ball. And he has become a world record. Never before have so many sixes been seen in a three-match ODI series.
In the first two ODIs, India followed a slow start. But England has been playing aggressive cricket since the beginning of the innings. There was a lot of criticism that India lost the second ODI due to the slow start policy. That is why the team went on the attack from the beginning today. 100 in 14 overs. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma, however, have hit more than four. In the opening pair, the duo hit 16 fours.
Rishabh Pant’s hand started the storm of sixes in India’s innings. Pant hit 4 sixes with 5 fours in 62 balls. Along with Pant, Hardik Pandya also contributed to bringing India to 250 in 35 overs.
Pandya also hit 4 sixes on his way to 64 off 44 balls. And after Pandya’s departure, Shardul Tagore has given India three hundred passes. This pacer has hit 3 sixes in 30 innings. These 11 sixes are the stage where the record of the previous six of the three-match series is lost from memory.
The two teams have hit 63 sixes in the series till the end of India’s innings. His previous record in the three-match series was 57 sixes. In the series between New Zealand and England in 2019, the two teams hit 57 sixes together.
At one time, the record of six in a three-match series was held by India and England. In 2017, 56 sixes were seen in the series of these two teams. This time all those records also seem trivial. Ben Stokes and Johnny Bairstow can be thanked separately for this. Bairstow has hit seven sixes in the first two matches of the series. And Stokes hit 10 sixes in the second match.
England, who reached the target of 330 runs today, did not start as expected. That is why such a six-inch rain was not seen. However, as of the writing of this report, England has increased the record of sixes by 3 more. At the end of 26 overs, the visitors scored 188 runs for 6 wickets.
