Indian former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar praises team India for their impressive performance in 3rd ODI against England which helps them to lift the ODI series trophy.
In the decider match of the ODI series India bat first and scored an impressive 329 runs. England who already has experience of chasing of mammoth 336 runs target(in 2nd )DI vs India) struggles a bit at the beginning.
England loses their top 6 wickets while scoring 168 runs and gets on the verge of losing the match. But the young Sam Curran made England to taste the bit of victory lap by dragging the match till the last over.
While England needed 14 runs off the final over T Natarajan bowled the last over and stuns with his yorker and restricts England from scoring high of the last over. India finally lifts the trophy by beating England by 7 runs.
Sunil Gavaskar praises team India
“I’ve always said that a captain is always as good as the team and he’s got a terrific team under him. He has got a couple of terrific opening batsman; the middle order is very good. He’s got a bowling attack which has plenty of variety. He has got an outstanding fielding unit. He’s got a wicketkeeper who is very good and who can come in down the order to bat and pummel the bowling along,” Gavaskar told Star Sports.
“So, the full balance of the team has been fantastic. And when you have something like that, you will win more matches than lose. And that is exactly what’s happening. Not everybody will be able to play to their potential,” Gavaskar explained.
“In a game of cricket, not XI players will be successful but if four players are successful say two from the bowling and as many from the batting then you are going win more matches than losing. India has some fabulous match-winners with the bat and with the ball and that is reflecting in the results.”
