Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, Team India has won this T20 series for the second time in a row with a clean sweep. Earlier, the Indian team had also defeated New Zealand 3-0. Now Team India has to take part in the 3-match domestic T20 against Sri Lanka.
New players will be given a chance against Sri Lanka
The 3-match T20 series to be played between India and Sri Lanka (IND vs SL) will start in Lucknow from February 24. At the same time, the second and third matches will be played in Dharamsala on 26 and 27 February. Many experienced players have been given a chance to rest in this series. In such a situation, there will be additional pressure on captain Rohit Sharma. In such a situation, after the victory in the third T20 match played against West Indies, captain Rohit Sharma has given a big statement. They said,
I have to admit that in the last two games we have defended the target well. Now in the next series, we would like to try the players sitting outside. We will take all our decisions keeping in mind the T20 World cup. There are very few players in the current team who are adept at chasing the target. We wanted to do well in both the departments. I will not think about the opposition team. We need to work on our fielding and we will work on that.
The performance of the bowlers was commendable
After the humiliating defeat on the South Africa tour, Team India made a great comeback against the West Indies. Before the T20 series, the Indian team had also won a clean sweep in ODIs. In this entire series, along with the bowlers of Team India, the middle-order batsmen also showed a great game. Due to which captain Rohit Sharma is very happy. Talking about this, Rohit Sharma said,
Our middle order is very new so we wanted to do well whether batting or bowling first. We know we are a strong team in pursuit of goals. Whatever we were expecting from all the players as a team, they did just that. The way our bowlers performed against a team like West Indies. He is capable.
