Sharma Responds Team’s Decision, Dhoni and Jadhav Couldn’t Hit the Ball Well

Sharma Responds Team’s Decision, Dhoni and Jadhav Couldn’t Hit the Ball Well

India’s win streak came to a stop when they were defeated by England. England’s semi-final hopes were starting to disappear, but this win inspired them, and the ended up beating India by 31 runs. Rohit Sharma scored his third century of the World Cup. However, it was not enough for the team to win. Their wait to seal a spot in the semi-finals got extended by few more days.

Eoin Morgan’s decision to bat first turned out to the right decisions as England scored a massive total of 337. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow put their team in a commanding lead by adding 160 runs in just 22.1 overs. Kuldeep Yadav gave India the much-needed breakthrough by dismissing Roy. However, there was absolutely no stopping Bairstow who scored a century.

One of the surprising decisions that India made during the match was sending the inexperienced Rishabh Pant ahead of Hardik Pandya. With India at 146 for 2, Pandya would have been the wiser choice ahead of Pant who was making his ICC Cricket World Cup debut.

India vice-captain Rohit Sharma was asked the same question at the post-match conference. “No. You guys wanted him to play, right? You asked where is Rishabh Pant? Where is Rishabh Pant? Here he is… at no.4,” he responded.

Dhoni and Jadhav Struggled

India vice-captain Rohit Sharma defended the questionable finish to their innings in their world cup fixture loss to England. Despite having two batsmen at the crease, it looked as if their goal wasn’t to reach their goal. Rohit said that even if they wanted to score as much, they couldn’t because of the slowness of the pitch. He added that both MS Dhoni (who scored 42-not-out) and Kedar Jadhav (scored 12-not-out) were trying to hit the ball but couldn’t because the delivery was slow.

“When MS and Kedar were batting, I think they were trying to hit, but they were not able to because of the slowness of the pitch,” Rohi said in the post-match media interaction. “You’ve got to give credit to the English team because they used the conditions really well. They used the longer boundary really well.”
