Following Sunday’s last ball win over West Indies, stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma became the only Indian captain to have led Men-in-Blue to two 3-0 whitewashes in T20 International series.
The last match between India and West Indies at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai went down to a thin line on the last ball but Rohit Sharma was calm and said these nerve-wracking matches were not new to him.
“Games like these happen a lot. Especially in the IPL, these have happened a lot. We wanted to be ruthless and not take a backseat. This kind of performance gives a lot of confidence. We didn’t want to be complacent and wanted to come out and win,” Rohit Sharma said after the conclusion of the match.
Even after whitewashing the Windies team in the three-match T20I series, Rohit Sharma said there was always scope for improvement and the team needed to do better while under pressure.
“As a team there is always scope for improvement. We need to improve on handling pressure situations while bowling. It is important to stick to your strengths, and a lot of these guys have not played much for India so a home series like this was the perfect opportunity to show their talent,” Rohit explained.
The Mumbai batsman heaped praises on the team’s efforts in the field. “I was also very impressed with the fielding efforts in this tournament by the team.”
