Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
The ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup has seen some extra-ordinary performances from batsmen as things have not been easy for them due to continuously varying conditions across the United Kingdom (UK).
There have a number of memorable innings from the batsmen in the tournament so far, but the standout performers showed grit under extreme pressure. English skipper Eoin Morgan produced the miraculous innings of the tournament as he went berserk against the Afghan bowlers and ended up scoring 148 runs off just 71 deliveries which included 4 boundaries and 17 maximums.
Pakistani top-order batsman Babar Azam played one of the best innings of his career against New Zealand as he took his side home in a tense run chase and that too on a pitch which was not easy to bat on, scoring an unbeaten 101 off 127 balls.
Carlos Braithwaite, known for doing the impossible in the past, almost pulled off a ridiculous run chase against New Zealand when he scored a fantastic hundred against the skilled pace attack, however, his efforts did not prove to be enough for the team at the end as they lost by 5 runs.
Rohit Sharma had a dream run in the World Cup this year as he broke multiple records including that of most centuries in a single edition of the tournament (i.e., 5 centuries). The opener played the best knock of the tournament against Pakistan as he ended up with a score of 140 off just 113 balls, hitting 14 boundaries and 3 sixes.
Furthermore, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson played the most important knock of the tournament when he scored a vital 67 off 95 balls against India on a pitch which was causing a lot of troubles for the batsmen due to extravagant spin and variable bounce.
