About Indian Innings
On Monday, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill paired for a 147-run stand to secure a 10-wicket victory. The shorter game may have freed Gill, who hasn’t been playing at his most fluid level lately. Gill’s most convincible shot was a six down the ground against leggie Sandeep Lamicchane, despite starting the game by slashing medium-pacer Sompal Karni for three fours in the second over.
Gill and Sharma retreated and pulled vehemently to find the boundary whenever Lamicchane dragged the ball down. With the pull, both batters benefited, reaching their half-centuries this way.

Before Shardul Thakur dismissed Kushal Bhurtel for 38(25), he and Aasif Sheikh contributed 65 runs to the score for the first wicket. Soon after getting fired, Ravindra Jadeja joined the party and organized India’s retaliation.
India also missed simple fielding opportunities in addition to the catches. Mohammed Siraj added three more wickets to Jadeja’s haul of three. As the first player from Nepal to score a half-century against India, Aasif emerged as the camp’s standout batter.
