IND vs WI: In defense of the bowler who did the ‘gritty’, captain Rohit said a heart-wrenching thing

India suffered a five-wicket defeat in the second match of the five-match T20I series on the West Indies tour. In this match, captain Rohit Sharma is in a lot of discussion about one of his decisions. Actually, the second T20 played between India and West Indies became exciting after reaching the last over. India had to defend 10 runs in the last over but Avesh started the over with a no ball due to which he lost his momentum. Rohit had given Avesh Khan in place of the experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the last over.

Rohit said after the match, ‘It is about giving opportunity. We know what Bhuvneshwar can do but if you don’t give a chance to Avesh or Arshdeep, they won’t know what it means to bowl in the death overs for India. “These players have played this role in the IPL. It’s just a matter of one match. They don’t need to panic. There is a need to support them and give them a chance.

Rohit also said that the Indian batsmen may not have performed well on a batting-friendly wicket but they hope to return to their old form soon. “We didn’t score many runs,” he said. We didn’t bat well. The pitch was good to bat but we could not bat well. But it happens.’

Rohit said, ‘I have been saying earlier also that when you try to experiment something new, it is not always successful. We will look into our mistakes and try to rectify them. West Indies fast bowler Obed McCoy took 6 for 17 as India were bowled out for 138. Rohit praised his bowlers for not allowing West Indies to reach the target easily.

The Indian captain said, ‘I am proud of the team. It’s not easy when you get down to defending such a small target. This target can be achieved in 13-14 overs but we took it till the last over. Taking wickets was important. We strategized accordingly and the bowlers followed suit.

Rohit said, ‘I am happy with the performance of the bowlers but there are some things in the batting which need to be taken care of. I am repeating again that we will continue to bat like this because we want to achieve something. There is no need to panic if a result is not favorable. We are not going to change things after a loss. West Indies scored 141 for five to level the five-match series 1-1.
