Rohit Sharma Holds Sri Lankan Flag To Thank The Fans

Rohit Sharma Holds Sri Lankan Flag To Thank The Fans

It was by pure luck that the 2018 Nidahas Trophy final between India and Bangladesh coincided with one of my recreational, non-assigned trips to Sri Lanka.

"I think we did well for 38 overs except for the Miraz over at the start and the second last over when Rubel went for 22 runs". Perhaps provoked into indignation, the experienced wicketkeeper-batsman hit 29 off just eight balls, which included three sixes and two fours.

However, respite came in the shape of Dinesh Karthik who arrived in the 19 over to save his team.

He was also asked about how the tournament has been going so far for the Indians, to which he replied: "This tournament has been good, where everyone till number six has been tested so far, and I think we have done a fair job till now". "We will win in the future". Pandey played 27 balls and slammed three boundaries.

Even as his teammates rushed onto the ground in elation, Karthik cut a composed figure after helping India prevail in the last-ball thriller.

Heading into the final over, India needed 12 runs to win, but they only managed to get three runs off the first three balls, even though Sarkar bowled a wide. Few players were at each other and the glass window in the Bangladesh dressing room was shattered after the game. "The support we got here from this crowd was brilliant, it would be a bit different if we were playing Sri Lanka but I would like to thank them for their show tonight", said Rohit after India's win on Sunday.

Student groups have been demanding immediate arrest of the professor over the sexual harassment cases. The students had raised slogans against the university officials and Delhi Police.

Karthick, during his sporadic India appearances in the last 13 and half years, has certainly done more than Kanitkar or Joginder but perhaps never had that "me too" moment that every cricketer craves for.

According to Rohit, Karthik was not happy when he was told he would be batting at No 7 in the final against Bangladesh.

Sundar bowled a slower one just outside off stump, forcing Das into a slog sweep which went straight up in the air to Raina who completed an easy catch near short fine leg.

Expectedly Iqbal was handed one demerit point by ICC after the match in Mirpur. We congratulate Ravi Shastri and the entire team for this great achievement. "It was more like, 'are you sure about the move as Vijay hasn't batted the whole tournament?' I knew there must be a reason behind it".

"We always knew Soumya Sarkar is not a premier bowler".

Everything that we had come to expect from the seniors were being delivered, but it was the juniors that was failing to hold up their place. "We will have a preparatory camp before the team heads on West Indies tour towards May end", he said, adding it is for the first time he has been a cricketing ambassador for any cricket team. Karthik played the best knock of his T20 career and changed the game completely.
