“I was quite surprised…….’ Indian Skipper On His Match-winning Innings Against Australia

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma played a blazing knock of 46* runs off 20 balls and helped his team to chase the down the huge total of 91 runs with 4 balls to spare. With this win Indian team have levelled the series against Australia, and will play the series decider on Rajiv Gandhi National Stadium, Hyderabad.

In post match conference, Rohit Sharma said he didn’t expect to hit like that and was surprised by his performance.

“I was quite surprised as well. I didn’t expect to hit it like that; glad it came off. I have been playing like that for the last 8-9 months. You can’t plan too much in such a shortened game,” Rohit Sharma said.

The game was delayed by wet outfield, and the umpire restricted the match to 8 over each side. He also talked about the short game and told about the dew factor.

“The bowlers had something to bowl to, and we bowled well. The dew started coming in later, which is why we saw a few full tosses from Harshal Patel. Coming back after a couple of months, the back injury can be tricky. I am not going to talk too much about how he bowled. Got us the crucial wicket. As a team, we are not going to analyze too much. Just want him to come and enjoy,” said Skipper.

At last, he praised Axar Patel for his bowling attack and pleased to see his exceptional knock with the bat. He also shows his happiness with Dinesh Karthik’s role as of finisher in the team.

“Axar can bowl in any stage, gives me an advantage of using the other bowlers in different situations too – maybe, we use the pacers in the middle overs if he bowls in the power play. I would also like to see his batting, “ Rohit Sharma said.

He added, “Glad DK could finish well. It has been a while since he had some time in the middle. There was this thought if we should get Rishabh in, but I thought Sams was going to bowl off-cutters, so I thought let DK come in, and he is playing that role anyway for us”.
