He said on his YouTube channel: “The margins are very small when it comes to T20 cricket. You can lose by a single ball or by one run. Sometimes, we can lose during the powerplay itself. We might score 30 runs in the powerplay, whereas the opponent might score 60 runs. The game ends there.”

“Some of them might not know this stat, but more than half of the games are won and lost in the powerplay itself. There are a lot of windows for experimentation when it comes to T20 cricket. We have the license to express ourselves and do some experiments in T20 cricket.”

India’s overall batting strategy was scrutinized in this 2022 WC because their strike rate during the powerplay was the fourth-worst in the tournament at 95.85. In the tournament, India averaged one boundary per nine balls. While both of their openers, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma, scored less than one run per ball in the first six overs.

In any game, India was unable to reach 50 in the power play. In their league games, they managed 31-3 vs Pakistan, 32-1 against Netherlands, 33-2 vs South Africa, and 37-1 vs Bangladesh before outperforming themselves against Zimbabwe 46-1.

Kl Rahul and Rohit Sharma combined to score just 88 runs in 6 innings of the T20 World Cup at an average of 14.66. During this time their best partnership was 27 runs. Team India could only hit 17 fours and seven sixes in the Powerplay.

India’s performance in the Powerplay of World Cup 2022 matches was better than only the UAE team. World Cup winners England were at the forefront of this case, scoring runs at a strike rate of 143.3.
