India captain Rohit Sharma became the star of the show as he single-handedly scored 46 runs. The superb knock of Sharma took India closer to win within 8 overs. Dinesh Karthik then finished in style as he hit a six and a four on two balls that he faced.
I had my plans – Dinesh Karthik
After winning the game, Karthik said, “There was not too much talk. Rohit was trying to tell me this is what the bowler would do, I had my plans. As a middle order batter it is about execution. It feels good to hit the winning runs. Ro with the bat and Axar with the ball stood out, good to see Bumrah back. We need to take the momentum forward. 1-1 is a good score. You want to play those crunch games. But more importantly, we are happy to have put up a show for the crowd with no injuries.”
