Indian Men’s Cricket Team Defeated England in Semis to Enter T20 World Cup 2024 Final

T20 World Cup

From Adelaide to Guyana, Rohit Sharma’s journey of retribution is complete. After suffering a humiliating 10-wicket loss, Rohit and India have now turned the tables, dismantling England by taking all 10 of their wickets to secure a spot in the T20 World Cup final. The memory of Rohit breaking down in the dugout after their T20 World Cup hopes were dashed left a lasting impression. It took two years, but revenge was finally served cold as India crushed England by 68 runs in a decisive match, earning their place in their second World Cup final in seven months.

This victory calls for celebration, but a bigger challenge awaits Rohit and his team: the final, just two days away. Understanding the gravity of the moment, Rohit remained composed even as the rest of the team celebrated exuberantly. After India bowled out England for 103 in their chase of 172, Rohit quietly retreated to the balcony of the dressing room, lost in thought. Virat Kohli, his comrade, tried to cheer him up, attempting to elicit a smile from the captain. But Rohit’s focus was unwavering, already set on Saturday’s final against South Africa.

“You see the relief on Rohit Sharma’s face, sitting on that chair. What must he be thinking? I tell you… he is already looking at Bridgetown and what lies ahead on Saturday… the final,” former India head coach Ravi Shastri said on commentary, capturing the essence of Rohit’s mindset.

In the past year, Rohit has led India to the final of three ICC events: the World Test Championship in June 2023, the 50-overs World Cup in November, and now this. Seven months ago, many believed it was India’s best chance to win a World Cup, but the opportunity that awaits in 36 hours is even greater. It’s fitting that the two unbeaten teams in the tournament will compete in the T20 World Cup final. For India, this may be the best and possibly the last chance to end a decade-long wait for a World Cup victory.
