India captain Rohit Sharma said on Sunday that his team accomplished everything they set out to do in the series against the West Indies. Suryakumar Yadav’s 65-run knock was backed up by a spirited bowling performance as India defeated West Indies by runs in the third and final T20I on Sunday at Eden Gardens. Harshal Patel finished with three wickets, while Venkatesh Iyer also had two. “There aren’t many people left from the team that used to chase.”
In this series, we wanted to bat first and chase as well. Because our middle order is still relatively new. I’m pleased with the series. We got pretty much everything we wanted. We recognize that as a team, we are in our infancy. We’re still a good chasing team, but we’re missing a lot of players. At the post-match presentation, Rohit told host broadcaster Star Sports, “It was pleasing to see guys bailing the team out of situations.”
“We’re moving forward as a group.” Rohit Sharma says.
“Moving forward as a group, this is a positive sign and something to be proud of. The most important takeaway from the ODIs was the middle order making a difference. In ODIs, I was impressed with our seam bowling. And even in this place. Harshal is a newcomer. Avesh is making his debut. Shardul comes and goes. So we wanted to see how the guys responded, and it was a good challenge to defend in both games against a good West Indies team “He continued.
Earlier, Suryakumar Yadav (65) and Venkatesh Iyer (35*) led India to 184/5 in the allotted twenty overs. The hosts managed to add 86 more runs to the total in the final five overs, pushing the score past the 180-run mark. Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav put on 91 runs for the fifth wicket.
With this victory, India completed a 3-0 sweep of the three-match T20I series. Previously, the Men in Blue had defeated the West Indies 3-0 in the ODI series. India will next face Sri Lanka in a three-match Twenty20 International series, which begins on Thursday.
“We want to keep a few guys fresh, so they won’t play in the Sri Lanka series. However, we have the World Cup in mind and are attempting to give individuals game time. I’m not one to look at the competition; instead, I’d like to see what we can accomplish as a group “Rohit stated.
