Rachin Ravindra is only 23 years old. This is the first World Cup to be played. He grabbed everyone’s attention by scoring a century against England in the very first match of the World Cup. He continued the same activity continuously. In this match too, he scored 108 runs off 94 balls. Rachin Ravindra’s innings was the main reason why the New Zealand team’s run rate was stable around 6 from the start. The reason why Kane Williamson is called a genius was also evident in this match.
After not playing cricket for several months, Williamson had entered the field directly in the match against Bangladesh in the World Cup. He scored a fifty in that match. But the retiree hurt his thumb while swinging. It was in this match that Williamson made his comeback after that match. In this match too, he was close to a century and got out by scoring 95 runs off 79 balls
He formed a partnership of 180 runs with Ravindra. Even after both of them were out, Daryl Mitchell, Chapman, Sandner and Glenn Phillips played effectively and the New Zealand team crossed 400 runs. Haris Raf, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, the three main fast bowlers of the team had scored more than 80 runs on behalf of Pakistan.
