After much patience, T20 Men’s World Cup is here, and what an iconic celebratory start from Jatinder Singh. Although Shikhar Dhawan is not physically present or involved in the ongoing T20 World Cup for India he is without a doubt in spirits.
T20 World Cup: Tournament opener between Oman VS Papa New Guinea (PNG)
Thigh- five celebrations from Jatinder Singh after the catch was a moment of surprise for the Indian cricket fans. During the marquee event opener between Oman VS Papa New Guinea (PNG) the Ludhiana batter, Jatinder was fielding.
In the comfortable 10 wicket victory Omani cricketer, Jatinder Singh played a crucial role. He would then go on to guide Oman to the finish line, beating 73 off 42 balls.
Oman captain and left-handed batsman Zeeshan Maqsood opted to ball and put PNG first to bat, having won the toss. Despite the early shake off Allah and Charles Amini help guide PNG, back to track. Both of them were able to score 56 and 37. That’s when quick wickets came in to play.
Truth be told the skipper Zeeshan Maqsood did most of the damage himself by finishing at the score of 4/20. Oman pacers Bilal Khan and Kaleemullah collected two wickets each. With six overs to spare Jatinder Singh and his fellow opener, Aqib Ilyas cruise down the 130-run target while the PNG finished at 129/9.
To be honest, we expected nothing less from the marquee event openers. This exciting opening game has delivered all the right notion plus a nostalgic moment for the Indian cricket fans. So, it is safe to say that every one of them is ready to fight tooth and nail to take the grand title (T20 World Cup champions) home.
