Rohit Sharma, the Indian captain, scored a fifty on a tricky surface at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York early in the T20 World Cup 2024, helping the team get over the line against Ireland, following which he missed on scoring a big one. Virat Kohli, one of the best batters in the world, has been in woeful form in the tournament, scoring only five runs in three innings, but the right-handed batter is expected to turn a corner like he has done many times before.
