Adelaide: India won the game against Bangladesh on Wednesday after going through many ups and downs. Marking by 5 runs win against Bangladesh has almost confirmed their spot in the semis as they climbs to the top of Points table in Group 2.
After marking the win, India captain Rohit Sharma showered praises on his team and said, “When he came into the scene [on Arshdeep], we asked him to do that for us. With Bumrah not there, someone has to do it for us, and take the responsibility, for such a young guy to come and do it is not easy. But we prepared him for it. The last 9 months he has been doing it. There was a choice betweeen Shami and him but we backed someone who did the job for us previously.”
Praising the powerful performances of Virat Kohli, Sharma said, “In my opinion he was always there, it was a matter of few innings here and there, he got it in the Asia Cup. We never had any doubts and the way he has been batting in this World Cup has been tremendous and he is really doing it for us [on Kohli].”
Rohit Sharma showers praises on KL Rahul
India captain then moved on to praise KL Rahul for his heroics today. He said, “Also liked the way how KL played today. We know what sort of a player he is, if he bats the way he can, he puts the team in a different position.”
While concluding his post-match presentation, Sharma said that he never has any doubts about their capabilities. “Our fielding was brilliant, some of the catches we took was great to watch. It’s a high-pressure game, to take those catches shows the ability of our guys and honestly I never had any doubts about our fielding.”
