On Friday, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma took a 2-0 lead over New Zealand in the three-match T20 International series. He has made a statement after taking this lead. "The conditions were not favourable due to dew," he stated in the statement, "but the entire squad performed well." Let me remind you that this is Virat Kohli's first series win under new captain Rohit Sharma and new coach Rahul Dravid since he stepped down as T20 skipper.
In the match, the Indian bowlers were 153 for six. The squad then cruised to victory thanks to a 117-run partnership between Rohit and KL Rahul for the first wicket. Rohit said after the game, "Due to the dew, the circumstances during the match were difficult. The entire squad delivered an outstanding performance. As batting units, we are well aware of New Zealand's capabilities. But we also recognise our spinners' capabilities, and I kept reminding them that by getting just one wicket, we could restrict them.'
He also lauded the 'bench strength.' "Because the bench strength players are routinely performing well, the players on the field are under pressure. I felt it was critical that I let them to play freely. It's a youthful team, with few players having played many games. Let me remind you that the T20 series' final encounter will be played in Kolkata on Sunday.
