Rohit Sharma said we played good cricket to win
Captain Rohit said in the post match presentation after the match that the pitch was slow for batting. Which was taken advantage of by the Indian bowlers. But at the same time Rohit said 190 runs is good for the scoreboard but considering the West Indies batting no score is good.
Rohit Sharma said,
“I think it was cool how we played the game. The conditions were not easy but we got a good score. A lot of thought was put into how we batted and it was nice to see that. The pitch was very slow which our bowlers took advantage of. I thought 190 was a good score, but none is better than West Indies batting. We played good cricket today to get the win. The batsmen were really smart and the bowlers bowled in pairs to get wickets. This put a brake on his scoring”.
Praised Avesh Khan as well as thanked the fans
Rohit Sharma further praised the players for his conversation. In which especially Avesh Khan was also praised. He also thanked the spectators who came to watch the match. Rohit Sharma said,
“We understand Avesh’s talent. Someone may have a bad game or two, but we want to keep his skills in mind. We want to give the boys enough time in between. He used the conditions and his height really well, which was great to watch. I also want to thank all the people who have come to watch the match, I know it is not easy to sit here watching the game in such a hot weather. There’s still one game left.”
