Double Dose Tuesday!
Two exciting matches in T20 World Cup coming your way! After losing their opening matches in the tournament, South Africa and West Indies lock horns to clinch their first victory in Dubai. On the other hand, riding high on confidence after a magnificent win over archrival India, Pakistan will take on New Zealand in Sharjah. Watch ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 live on YuppTV and enjoy the action.
The defending champions West Indies have lost to England in their first game and look to bounce back in today’s match. In a complete batting collapse, Windies just bundled out for 55 runs in 14.2 overs, giving a poor start to the much-anticipated event. Chasing 56, England finished the formalities in 8.2 overs and gained two points on the leaderboard. Not the kind of start they wanted from their big players, West Indies, will undoubtedly look for a powerful comeback against South Africa. After scoring a below-par score of 118 against Australia, South Africa bowlers bowled exceptionally well and took the game to the final over before Marcus Stoinis took Aussies home. Having world-class bowlers like Kagiso Rabada and Andre Nortje, it’s high time for Proteas batters to step up.
It was a memorable Sunday for Pakistan as they made the impossible possible in a high-octane contest. A win against India in the world cup was luring Pakistan for a long time, and the Men in Green finally ended the age-old dominance of India over them. Shaheen Afridi rattled the Indian batting in the powerplay and provided a much-needed start. Losing both the openers in quick succession, Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Rishab Pant managed to put a decent score on the board. In response to India’s 151, Pakistan openers Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan have dominated Indian bowlers and steered a 10-wicket win to break the jinx. Taking immense confidence from their historic win on Sunday, Pakistan will face New Zealand, who will start their T20 campaign in Sharjah. New Zealand pulled out of the Pakistan tour before the T20 world cup, which stirred quite a rift. Suffering from a few injuries in the squad, it will be exciting to see how Kiwis will face a well-balanced Green brigade.
