Want to be a professional cricketer?
Cricket is a team game. A whole team’s effort is needed to win a match. Bowlers, batsman and fielders need to give their best in the field to guide the team victory. But sometimes one player’s contribution can change the scenario of the game. A batsman or a bowler, who is at his best form, can put pressure and took away the match from the opposition.
There have been instances when a batsman’s individual score became tough to chase for the opposition. Here, in this article, we have discussed five instances when a team could not surpass an opponent player’s individual score.
1. Rohit Sharma’s 162 against West Indies
On 29 October 2018, India’s white-ball vice-captain Rohit Sharma played brilliant innings of 162 runs against the West Indies bowling attack, which included 20 fours and four sixes. With the help of Rohit’s unbeaten century and Ambati Rayudu’s century innings, India scored a huge total of 377 runs in the prescribed 50 overs.
In response, the entire West Indies team was bowled out for 153 and India registered a big win by 224 runs. The Caribbean’s even failed to surpass the Rohit Sharma’s individual score in that match. The left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed played a significant role in this as he picked three wickets and leaked only 13 runs.
