Rohit Sharma on India’s Win: The Indian team defeated Sri Lanka by 4 wickets in the ODI match at Eden Gardens on Thursday. This was the second match of the three-match ODI series. The first match was also won by Team India. With this, this ODI series has now been named after India. Captain Rohit Sharma looked very happy after winning the bilateral series against Sri Lanka. Actually, after the T20 World Cup 2022, this was the first series win under his captaincy.
Rohit Sharma praised KL Rahul’s batting and Kuldeep Yadav’s bowling to win the second match. After the match, he said, ‘It was a close match. Games like this teach you a lot. KL Rahul has been batting at number-5 for a long time. An experienced batsman playing down the order gives confidence to you and your team. He batted brilliantly. Kuldeep bowled well, got us back in the match. At the moment there is confidence in his bowling which is very good for the team.
What did Rohit say about not being a left-handed batsman in the top order?
Here Rohit Sharma’s answer also came on the question of not having a left-handed batsman in the top order. Rohit said, ‘It is a good thing to have a left-handed batsman in the top order. All the batsmen (Ishaan Kishan, Shikhar Dhawan) who were given a chance here have scored a lot of runs in the last one year. We would have liked to have left hander batsmen but we also know the ability of our right hand batsmen. For the time being, this combination seemed right to us. After seeing the pitch in the third ODI, we will consider whether any changes can be made.
India won by 4 wickets
After winning the first ODI of the three-match series against Sri Lanka by 67 runs, India won the second match by 4 wickets. Indian bowlers bundled out Sri Lanka for just 215 runs here. In response, thanks to KL Rahul’s unbeaten half-century, Team India won by 4 wickets with 40 balls remaining. Kuldeep Yadav was the ‘Player of the Match’. He took three wickets for 51 runs in this match.
