Against the West Indies in the second Twenty20 international, Rohit Sharma said, “Didn’t Apply Ourselves”
As a result, India’s captain Rohit Sharma promised to keep encouraging young bowlers and give them a chance to show what they can do at important moments in a game.
India’s captain, Rohit Sharma, promised to continue encouraging young bowlers and give them opportunities to shine during pivotal moments of a match. The background of Rohit’s comments was his decision to bowl Avesh Khan (1/31 from 2.2 overs) during the last over of the low-scoring second T20I rather than the more seasoned Bhuvneswar Kumar (0/12 from 2 overs).
Rohit said he wanted to assess India’s depth of bowlers ahead of the next T20 World Cup in Australia later this year.
“Providing chances is essential. While Avesh or Arshdeep will never understand what it takes to bowl for India in the decisive over if they are not given the chance, we are aware of Bhuvneshwar and his contributions. Rohit said after the match.
“They did it while the IPL was going on. Those people don’t have to go crazy over a single game. They need assistance and a chance, he added.
Despite his opinion that the Indian hitters underperformed on a batting-friendly surface in the five-wicket loss to West Indies in the second T20, Rohit is optimistic about a quick comeback.
“For us, the number of runs on the board wasn’t sufficient. We had poor batsmanship. We weren’t working hard enough, despite the pitch playing nicely. But it is possible, he continued.
“I’ve highlighted countless times that our hitting group will not always succeed no matter what we try. We’ll try to acknowledge our mistakes and seek to make amends, Richard continued.
Obed McCoy wreaked havoc with the bat as India only managed 138 runs while recording excellent figures of 6 for 17.
The bowlers in particular were complimented by Rohit for keeping the game close to the finish line. Rohit praised his team’s grit.
“Excited about the group. When defending a target like that, you may choose to try to extend the game till the very end or the game may end in 13–14 overs. The men fought on, and wickets needed to be taken. The men showed up and implemented the plan that we came up with, he stated.
We are pleased with the bowlers, but there are certain batting problems that need to be resolved. We’ll keep batting like this because we want to achieve something, I’ll say it again and again. Don’t stress out if the result is unique. After one defeat, we won’t make any changes, he added.
The third Twenty20 International between India and the West Indies will be played there on Tuesday.
