Adelaide, ICC In the T20 World Cup, the Indian team has almost made its place in the semi-finals after defeating Bangladesh by five runs. After Team India’s win, captain Rohit Sharma was all praise for Arshdeep Singh and said ‘We have prepared Arshdeep Singh for the death overs, which is proving effective in the absence of the injured Jasprit Bumrah’, according to the captain, between Arshdeep and veteran fast bowler Mohammed Shami. There would have been an alternative. Arshdeep bowled well in the death overs in the five-run win against Bangladesh. Bangladesh needed 20 runs in the final overs.
Nurul Hasan hit a six and a four off the bowling of Arshdeep but he stayed calm and bowled two brilliant yorkers to give India the win. After the match ended, Rohit Sharma said that ‘When Arshdeep came into the team, we asked him to bowl in the death overs. Bumrah is not in the team and this task would not be easy for anyone.
It is not easy for a young bowler to play this kind of role but we prepared him. He added that he has been performing this role for the last eight-nine months. If someone is doing the work consistently then I support him. We had Shami and Arshdeep. I was calm but also nervous.
Staying calm is critical to executing your strategy as a team. Any team can win a match of less overs. But when the match started after the rain, we kept our composure and in the end we got a good win.
Rohit Sharma praised Virat Kohli saying that ‘Kohli was in good form and this was a case of some of his good innings. After the Asia Cup, he did not look back. He is very experienced. Apart from this, the way KL Rahul batted was good for the team.SS1MS
