Jofra Archer abuses the umpire : Although, all the 3 India vs England T20Is have ended with pretty much one-sided contests, but it has been a high-voltage series so far between two quality T20 teams. The Eoin Morgan-led England team currently has a 2-1 lead in the five-match T20I series after a comprehensive 8-wicket victory in the 3rd T20I match due to match-winning performances from the duo of Mark Wood and Jos Buttler. And now, the hosts are under extreme pressure to win the ongoing 4th T20I against England in order to keep the exciting series alive and kicking.
After losing the toss and being asked to bat first in the IND vs ENG 4th T20I, India got off to a poor start as they lost the trio of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli quite early in the game. However, while playing his first innings in international cricket, Suryakumar Yadav played an outstanding knock of 57 runs off only 31 balls to help India post a challenging total of 185 for 8 in their 20 overs. For England, speedster Jofra Archer bowled amazingly well to return with excellent figures of 4 for 33. During the last over of the Indian innings, Archer was seen losing his cool at the on-field umpire over a wide call made by him as the England pacer was unhappy with the decision.
In a must-win encounter, Suryakumar’s brilliant half-century, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer’s crucial cameos helped India put up 185 runs on the board. As seen so far in the game, this is the best wicket for batting and England will surely back themselves to chase down this target with the firepower in their batting department. On the other hand, India will be requiring wickets at regular intervals to stop this England batting line-up.
