Kuldeep Yadav also took 3 wickets while bowling well, which led to him being given Man of the Match. Rohit further said, this pitch was very helpful for Simers. We made good use of the condition though there was some problem in pursuing the goal. Looking at the West Indies cymers, I felt that this goal would not be as easy as that. And we got to learn something in this match too.

Sikhar Dhawan


Let's tell you, Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have been caught by West Indian bowler Oshane Thomas. Rohit Sharma praised him and said, Oshane is a very talented player. If he is bowling in the right place, then for any batsman it will not be easy to play. His length helps him a lot, and I wish him good luck for the future.
