- Rohit Sharma showed his great form after a long time
- 72 runs in 41 balls against Sri Lanka
- India has won more times than Rohit’s half-century
Rohit Sharma: Team India captain Rohit Sharma batted brilliantly in the match played against Sri Lanka on Tuesday. He played an innings of 72 runs. To score so many runs, Rohit Sharma faced only 41 balls and hit five fours and four sixes. Such an aggressive innings with the bat of Rohit Sharma has come after a long time. This should have calmed the critics of Rohit Sharma, but even after such a big and good innings, Team India had to face defeat. This once again triggered a round of criticism. Rohit Sharma is the only batsman in the world who has scored four centuries in T20 Internationals. At the same time, 28 half-centuries are also recorded in his name. Whenever Rohit Sharma has to score more than 50 runs for India, then India’s victory becomes almost certain. So far only four times it has happened that Rohit Sharma has crossed the 50 mark and yet the Indian team has lost.
When has Team India lost even after Rohit Sharma’s half-century?
Rohit Sharma scored an unbeaten 79 against Australia in the year 2010, but the Indian team lost the match. After this, in the year 2015, Rohit Sharma scored 106 against South Africa in Dharamsala, but even then the Indian team lost the match. In the year 2016, Rohit Sharma had scored 62 runs against West Indies, even then the Indian team was defeated. After this, now Rohit Sharma played an innings of 72 runs, but had to face defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka. That is, it has happened for the first time since 2016. It should also be understood that Rohit Sharma’s innings of more than 50 runs makes India’s win chances, but not guarantees.
Team India will play Afghanistan on September 8
Now in the Asia Cup, Team India’s journey is almost over. If we are sitting with the expectation that Afghanistan will defeat Pakistan and then Sri Lanka will also defeat Pakistan, then it does not make any sense. The Indian team will now play its last match against Afghanistan on September 8 and then prepare to return home. But after this, India has to play Australia’s T20 series from September 20, it will have to be seen how India performs.
