Rohit Sharma said this after breaking the world record


Hospice: Rohit Sharma has broken the world record for most T20I wins as a captain with 16 wins at home. India captured the series by registering a 7-wicket win against Sri Lanka in the second match on Saturday.

Indian batsmen played a stormy innings of 74 runs from Shreyas Iyer and 45 runs from Ravindra Jadeja. Iyer century as the opener was dismissed cheaply in India’s innings against Sri Lanka when they were chasing 184 as a target.

“Yeah, it was something that was important, it was nice to see a partnership coming up and coming together for the middle order. This has happened many times in the last few matches. Don’t want to be too hard on the bowlers, these things happen. We bowled well in the first few overs (in the batting powerplay), restricted them well, scored 80 runs in the last five overs, that’s something we need to understand on the things to do in the last five overs, but We did well in the first 15 overs,” Rohit Sharma said after winning the game.

Jadeja scored 45 runs in 18 balls with 17 balls to spare to take the Indian ship to the edge of victory. On the last ball of the first over against Sri Lanka, captain Rohit Sharma got out for one run. Lahiru Kamra sends Ishan Kishan back after 5.1 overs.

“The pitch was great, the ball was coming in nicely and these things happen. We have a lot of talent in that batting unit, we will keep giving them chances, it’s up to them to make the most of it. I thought Sanju Showed how well he can play with that innings, it’s about taking your chances. Shreyas had an important innings, couldn’t have asked for anything more, Jaddu came off well with the bat.”

“We’ll sit tomorrow, see what we can do (on any team changes), we’ve used 27 players so far, there may be more (laughs). When you win the series, people like that There are those who haven’t had the opportunity. Some people have to play Tests, we all have to look after. It’s a sign of the times we are in, it’s okay to take care of the physical, but it’s the mental thing that’s also important At the end of the day, we need to keep winning and keep the positive energy in the team.”
