Well played India

Pakistan knocked back out of the semi final spots

posted on 30/6/19

Reasons why England won (BBC comments)

1) India involved in spot fixing for the first and last ten overs of each innings.

A: Tossing the ball up for England's batsmen in the first ten overs.
B: Bowling tightly for the last ten overs of England's innings.
C: Blazing away for their own first ten overs.
D: Deliberately ambling singles for their own last ten overs - or missing the ball by a bat's width.

2) India tried their best to keep Pakistan from getting to the semis.

3) ICC involved in the latter conspiracy by ordering a non spin friendly doctoring of the pitch.

legendary captain who played close to 100 test matches were critical of India's approach in the final 10 overs. I myself, switched TV off in the 47th or 48th over, surprised with lack of India's fight. Ganguly, their ex skipper , stated several times in commentary box that there is lack of fight. No allegation of spot fixing but yes, India should have attacked a lot more in the last 7-8 overs.
