Rohit Sharma Praises Indian Players: Rohit Sharma-led team India crushes Sri Lanka with a clean sweep in both ODI and Test series they played. Earlier India won the 3 matches T20I series and leads the same aggression in the 2 match Test series and gained a PCT of 58.33 in WTC points Table.

Rohit Praises Jadeja 

Ravindra Jadeja was India’s star performer in the previous match in Mohali performing with both bat and ball. Jadeja scored 175 runs and picked 5 wickets in the first innings and bagged another 4 wickets in the second innings where India won the match by an innings and 222 runs.

“We have seen Jadeja grow as a batter and he seems to get better and better. He strengthens the team, and he’s also improving as a bowler. And he’s a gun fielder, so he is a complete package,” told Rohit Sharma.

Rohit on Rishabh’s Performance

Wicket-keeper batter Rishabh Pant played a knock of 39 of 26 balls in the first innings and scored the fastest Test half-century by an Indian in a Test match breaking Kapil Dev’s record of achieving the same in 30 balls way back in 1982 against Pakistan in Karachi.

Pant also affected five dismissals in the match. His all-around performance in the series helped him bag the ‘Player of the Series award.

“Rishabh seems to get better with each game that he plays. Especially in these conditions. We saw it in the England series (last year) and now. A couple of catches and stumpings showed how confident he is,” said Rohit Sharma.

India were playing its third Test match on home soil and they have won all three inside three days.

“It’s been a good run and I have enjoyed it personally and as a team. We wanted to achieve a few things as a team, and we have done that. Pink-ball Tests are challenging. We never knew what it was like to play with the pink ball in India, but we are learning to make those adjustments. The crowd just makes it more special,” told Rohit Sharma.

Virat Kohli Praises Shreyas Iyer

“Shreyas just carried on from where he left off in the T20 series against Sri Lanka. He seemed to carry that form into the Test series. He knew he was stepping into the big shoes of guys like Rahane and Pujara, but he has everything that he requires. He will be better now when he starts traveling,” said Virat Kohli.
