Rohit Sharma on Death Bowling: Team India has captured the three-match T20 series against South Africa. India have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead by winning both the opening matches of the series. This is the first time that India defeated the Proteas team in a T20 series on their soil. However, even after this victory, captain Rohit Sharma is in tension about his team’s death bowling.
After winning the second T20 match in Guwahati, Rohit Sharma said about death bowling, ‘To be honest, there is a little concern in this (death bowling) department because we are not bowling well. This is the area where we will get the challenge. Not much to worry about but we have to lift ourselves up.
During this, Rohit looked very positive about Team India’s batting approach. He said, ‘We all believe that this is what we want in the team. This approach gives mixed results but we will go ahead with it. In the past, the individual focus was that everyone should get a chance and do their job, but now we have moved beyond that.
