Skipper Rohit Sharma is facing a lot of criticism for trying new and different things, first middle order batsman Surya Kumar Yadav was asked to open the innings and now Rohit preferred a youngster in the final over instead of Bhuvneshwar Kumar who is known to handle such crucial situations. During the second T20 India was bowled out for just 138 runs, however, the team tried to make a comeback with a stunning effort from the bowlers. Despite the low score, India managed to take the game to the last over and Rohit Sharma decided to give the ball to Avesh Khan. . The experiment didn’t work out unfortunately and the skipper faced massive backlash.
On the decision however Rohit says, ” We know what Bhuvi does for us; he has been doing it for years. Unless you give chances to guys like Avesh and Arshdeep you’ll never know, but it is just one game. They have the skills and the talent and it is all about backing them. I am really proud of the bowlers and the team. Targets such as these can get over in 13-14 overs but we dragged it to the last over. I thought the guys executed the plans and really happy with the way the guys bowled,” the Indian captain said.
The Twitter users are however not satisfied with the decision, check out some of the tweets now:
Irrespective of the result from India, credit for bringing the game till the last over. Arshdeep should be on the plane to Australia, what a character he is. Him Bumrah bowling in tandem will be a sight to behold.
One question Rohit, why would not give the ball to Bhuvi?
