This lack drowned Team India’s loot
After the defeat in the second T20, Indian captain Shikhar Dhawan gave an outspoken statement. He told that due to some deficiency, Team India’s loot was drowned. Dhawan said there was turn in the pitch. Knew it would happen and our spinners did well. We had one batsman short and we knew we had to move the innings smartly. However, we scored 10-15 runs, which made a big difference. Let us tell you that India started well by adding 49 runs for the first wicket, but except for Dhawan (40), none of the batsmen could cross the 30-mark.
‘Salute to both bowlers and batsmen’
Dhawan further said that I am proud of the team, because we gave a very good fight. The fellow players showed a never give up attitude in difficult situations while defending the score of 132. Salute to both bowlers and batsmen. It is worth noting that in this match, four Indian players – Vadat Padikkal, Rituraj Gaikwad, Nitish Rana and Chetan Sakariya made their debut in T20 International cricket. Padikkal contributed 29 and Gaikwad contributed 21 runs. At the same time, Rana could only score 9 runs. Fast bowler Chetan Sakariya took 1 wicket for 30 runs.
