BRIDGETOWN (Barbados): Rohit Sharma-led Team India took the field against Afghanistan in the Super Eights match of the T20 World Cup 2024 wearing black armbands in memory of former India fast bowler David Johnson who passed away on Thursday. David Johnson was a former right-arm fast bowler who played in two Test matches in 1996 for Team India, where he managed to take three wickets.

Johnson snapped 125 wickets with a strike of 47.4 and an average of 28.63 in 39 games during his first-class cricket career. Despite being a lower-order batsman most of the time, he had scored a century in first-class cricket. The former bowler bagged 41 wickets in 33 List A matches. In 2015, he played his final competitive match in the Karnataka Premier League.

In the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024, India ended their group stage with three wins in three matches against Ireland, Pakistan and the USA in Group A while their last game against Canada ended in a washout. Meanwhile, Afghanistan ended the group stage in second place in Group C, with three wins and a loss to West Indies. (ANI)
