India lost by 4 wickets in first T20 match
Rohit Sharma scored 11 runs in the first T20 match
Next match between India and Australia on 23 September
New Delhi: Team India had to face defeat in the first T20 match played between India and Australia. Team India lost the first match despite scoring 208 runs. However, Team India’s batting was good. Suryakumar Yadav, KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya played a brilliant innings, but Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli did not get runs from the bat. On this, former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria has given his opinion on captain Rohit Sharma’s batting spot.
Danish Kaneria said on his YouTube channel, “In the Asia Cup we saw that Rohit Sharma was not scoring runs. Even in the first match against Australia, Rohit did not score runs. Virat is also unable to bat at one down. In such a situation, if you want, get Virat open with Rohit or bring Rohit down. If Rohit is not able to bat at number three then KL Rahul should be brought down. It won’t be such a big issue.”
He further said, “Virat Kohli should have spent some time on the pitch. At that time there was no need for the kind of shots that he tried to make. In the first match, India bowled and fielded poorly, due to which they lost the match. The Australians took all the catches. At the same time, Team India dropped 3 catches.
Let us tell you that the next match of India will now be played on 23 September at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur. If India loses this match, then Australia will take an unassailable lead in the series, but if Team India wins, then the last exciting match between the two teams will be seen in Hyderabad.
