Not wanting to send him away like that: Rohit Sharma on Dasun Shanaka | Cricket News



GUWAHATI: Captain India Rohit Sharma on Tuesday said he did not want to captain Sri Lanka Dasun Shanaka ‘Mankaded’ after the batter was too far behind on his way to the brave hundred in the first ODI here on Tuesday.
Riding on Virat kohli73rd international way Rohit and Shubman carriesIndia posted an impressive 373 to seven after being asked to hit the stick first.
Sri Lanka has never been hunted after losing half of their team by a score of 161, but Shanaka (108 not out of 88 balls) stood tall among the ruins with his battle strike.

However, he would not have reached the milestone without Rohit’s intervention. He withdrew his appeal because he ran out of strikers at the end of the game Mohammed Shami after the batter fell too far, giving Shanaka a chance to finish his century.
“I didn’t know Shami did it (to the full extent), he (Shanaka) was hitting the ball on the 98th. The way he hit the ball was brilliant, we couldn’t take him out like that. Not what. That’s what we came up with, hats off to him, he played really well,” Rohit said at the post-match introduction.
After the excellent performance of tennis players, speed merchant Umran Malik (3/57) and Mohammed Siraj (2/30) made it in a losing match, although Rohit said India could have been better at bowling as a team.

“We started very well and to get such a total is a huge effort by all the batters. The foundation is set up to go out and play freestyle. I think we can play. Bowling is a bit better, but don’t want to be too critical of it although the dew isn’t too much.
“We’ve been bowling well as a unit and if you want to win matches like this, everyone has to be in the party. There are a few areas we need to look at as a team. It’s a team and again, it’s a team sport.”
Match man Kohli, who hit 12 4s and 6s of his 113 87 balls, said one must play every game as if it were his last.

“I don’t think it makes any difference. My preparation and intentions were always the same. I thought I hit the ball very well. It was almost the same pattern I played, I understood we needed 25 more. -30 runs,” Kohli said.
“I was trying to understand the conditions in the second half. Trying to get a comfortable total for us across the board. One thing I’ve learned is that despair doesn’t get you anywhere. You don’t have to complicate things. You go out there and play fearlessly, I can’t hold everything.
“You have to play for the right reasons and play almost every game like it’s your last and just be happy about it. The game will go on. I won’t be playing forever, I’m here to stay. in a happy space and enjoy your life.” Playing time.”
Thanks to the captain’s knockdown, the Sri Lankan team finished in 306th place with a score of 8 out of 50 rounds. Shanaka said his new pitchers were unsatisfactory.
Shanaka said: “I think from the very beginning of their openers, we didn’t put the new ball to good use, unlike their pitchers who swung it. We had a plan. plan, but the pitchers didn’t get the basics right.”
“We didn’t use variations in the first 10 rounds. (With sticks) I think I’m doing the basics well, I think I should hit higher in T20I, but the team needs me to play in position. 6th with Bhanuka at 5.”
