We Will Give More And More Chance To This Youngster, Says Captain Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma praised his team’s effort after they took an unbeatable lead of 3-1 in the series against the West Indies. Before the bowlers blasted in tandem to help India win the Twenty20 series against the West Indies, Rishabh Pant top-scored with a quick 44. The team captained by Rohit Sharma won the fourth match at Lauderhill on Saturday by 59 runs, putting out a team effort in preparation for this year’s World T20.

The visitors reached 191/5 in the first innings because of Pant’s 44 from 31 deliveries and Rohit Sharma’s 33 from 16 deliveries. As a result of Arshdeep Singh’s 3-12, West Indies lost for 132. Utilizing his variations, the left-arm seamer ended the game by taking Obed McCoy’s wicket.

Avesh Khan also regained his lost edge after struggling in the first two games. After giving up 47 runs in the previous Twenty20, there were even calls for the pacer to be dropped from the starting lineup. He atoned for his transgression by scoring 2/17 in India’s series-winning victory over the Caribbean team.

Avesh’s support from team management wouldn’t be affected by a few poor performances, according to skipper Rohit, who also backed the pacer.

In the post-match presentation, Rohit shared some positives from the match and series, “We do understand Avesh’s talent. Anyone can have one or two bad games, but we want to keep his skills in mind. We want to give boys enough game time in the middle. He used the conditions and his height really well, which was great to see.”

He added further about putting up a good score on the board and securing the win, “I think it was pleasing how we played the game. The conditions were not easy but we got a good score. A lot of thought went into how we batted and it was pleasing to see. The pitch was quite slow which our bowlers used to their advantage,” said Rohit.

“I thought 190 was a good score, but with the kind of batting that I have, no score is good. We played good cricket to get the win today. The batters were really smart and the bowlers bowled in pairs to get wickets. It put the brakes on their scoring.”

He concluded by thanking the fans who gathered to watch cricket in the heat. “I would also like to thank all the people who came in; I know it is hot and it isn’t easy to sit out there and watch the game. There’s another day to go,”

The last match of the series is scheduled for the 7th of August, Sunday.
