They scored over 90 runs in the first Powerplay with both of them also registering their respective fifties but  Gill was dismissed by a fantastic catch in the deep just as they reached the 100-run partnership. Rohit too got out just af

What an exceptional batting performance from India! The Indian batters have celebrated Diwali in their own style with a lot of fireworks on the field. They couldn't quite get to their highest-ever total in ODIs but have managed to get their biggest total in this World Cup and this is exactly what they would have hoped for before going into the semi-finals.

Mentions that it is sometimes difficult to get away the sixes in the final over, so, it was good to get a few of those aw

Netherlands, on the other hand, knew that it was not going to be easy on this wicket and they were taken to the cleaners in the first ten overs.
