Rohit sharma, on being asked about Virat kohli said that team management is not worried about form of former skipper. In a post match presentation after whitewashing WI side by 3-0, limited overs skipper Rohit Sharma was asked that what team management thinks of Virat Kohli’s performance.
Virat Kohli has not reached triple digits even after clubbing scores of all the three ODI played against WI. Kohli Scored 26 altogether along with a duck in last game.
Last time he scored 100+ was 2019 since then he has just gone past 50s on some occasions.
“Does Virat Kohli need confidence? What are you talking about? (chuckles) I think not scoring 100 is a different thing but he played a series in South Africa and scored two half-centuries in three matches. I don’t see anything wrong. And the team management is not at all worried about that,” said Rohit Sharma in the press conference.
“What we were worried about was, you know, how we will be challenged in the middle overs and I thought our middle overs batting in this series was really good,” he added.
“We’ve got a lot of candidates for that numbers and it’s a good headache to have and a good competition within themselves to come out and play and perform. If you see that’s probably why I mentioned about that middle order,” said Rohit.
Everyone in the middle-order, whenever they got an opportunity to bat, they performed and they got the runs as well. And they batted in difficult situations as well.
“In the last two games, we were 40-3 odd and then we had to build the innings. In both games, we managed to do that so it’s a good sign moving forward,” he added.
Shreyas Iyer’s 80-run knock and a joint effort from the entire bowling unit, helped India defeat West Indies by 96 runs in the third and final ODI here at Narendra Modi Stadium on Friday.
