Suryakumar Yadav batted brilliantly: Rohit Sharma
Winning the 3rd T20I, Rohit Sharma shared a lot about the game in the post-match presentation and also gave an update about his injury. "It's okay at the moment. We've got a few days till the next game, hopefully, it should be okay (his injury).
How we bowled in the middle overs was crucial. I thought we used the conditions well. Used the variations well," Rohit Sharma was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"Was very clinical how we chased. When you watched from the outside, didn't feel a lot of risk was taken, was a lot of calmness in the middle.
Surya batted brilliantly, good partnership there with Iyer. The pitch had something in it for the bowlers, not an easy target. Was important to pick the right shots, right balls on a ground like that," he added.
However, during India's inning, Rohit Sharma looked good with the bat as he smashed a four and a six before getting injured and walking back to the dressing room.
