Unbeaten India Faces Undefeated South Africa in Epic T20 Final

India secured a commanding 68-run victory over defending champions England to advance to the final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 on Thursday, June 28. Skipper Rohit Sharma’s brilliant half-century (57) set the stage for India’s formidable total of 171, followed by a stellar performance from ace spinners Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav, who each bagged three wickets, restricting England to a meager 103. This triumph marks the end of a decade-long wait for India to return to the T20 World Cup final, while also avenging their 2022 World Cup semi-final defeat against England. The undefeated Indian team will face an unbeaten South Africa in the final tomorrow, June 29. Batting first, Rohit and Kohli struggled against the pace attack of Reece Topley and Jofra Archer on a slower surface. However, the innings stabilized with contributions from Rohit and Suryakumar Yadav, leading to a competitive score of 171 for seven. India’s spinners then capitalized on the conditions, dismantling England’s batting lineup and sealing a decisive victory. For more sports news and T20 World Cup 2024 updates, follow Spinmatch.
