What They Said About

'Easiest run chase in history?'

No SKY show as a Halestorm hits Adelaide in a one-sided T20 World Cup semi-final

For starters, no one was worried about the weather at the second semi-final of the 2022 Men's T20 World Cup. Because... it was GORGEOUS!
And everyone knew where their priorities lay.
Add to that England's injury worry, and it was clear India had a slight edge.
Elsewhere, even before a ball had been bowled, the banter had well and truly begun.
India lost Rahul early, eliciting another debate. Big-game, big-team nerves?
England chose to front-load Sam Curran in the powerplay.
And they knew they had to dismiss Virat Kohli quickly.
When Rohit Sharma fell in the ninth over, this was you, and possibly a billion others?
…but it wasn't Suryakumar Yadav's evening, even though he did bring out a near 90-degree hit.
The reason: Adil Rashid had other ideas. By the 12th, he was done for the night.
India needed a Kohli special. But halfway into the 15th over, they hadn't reached 100 yet...
And then in the 16th, Kohli was on the floor, with the rub of the green going his way. Saved on umpire's call.
But after getting to his half-century during the course of which he became the first batter in T20Is to cross 4000 runs, there was a first for Kohli, at a ground he loves batting at.
Then, it was time for the Pandya party.
The sacrifice of this World Cup?
From 80 for 3 in 13, India's 168 for 6 would've been a relief for their fans.
And with India in the game, corporate India was busy in boardrooms.
England chase began in turbocharged fashion.
One for future coaching manuals, please.
Wristspin... not in this India line-up.
Things were going so horribly wrong for India that England managed something that ain't common in cricket.
Since there's no Chris Gayle in 2022, we've got Alex Hales back for such headlines.
England were in cruise control... and India on their way out.
And shortly after...
Another major final for Matthew Mott, who coached Australia Women to the one-day title earlier this year.
Before India's post-mortem begins, we're asking: is it time for a reboot after a reboot?
Overseas leagues for IPL stars? Oh, but won't that be the Hundred in England?
Par, above, below... what were your thoughts?
And which story will you go for on Sunday?
Ben Stokes called it... last year.
As we part ways…
*Rolling eyes*
Okay, wait, one more…
