“I think everyone’s approach is different today. I hope it also appeared in the first two games, but it didn’t happen.” Minutes after India defeated Afghanistan and won its first victory at the 7th ICC T20 World Cup, Indian Deputy Captain Rohit Sharma summarized the campaign activities so far.
Earlier Wednesday, Rohit was indifferent when interacting with the scribe, as he did in the crease of the Zayed Cricket Stadium. After losing to Pakistan and New Zealand, victory in 66 games gave India a glimmer of hope.
The only way for India to qualify for the knockouts is to beat Scotland and Namibia with excellent net margins in the last two games, and hopes to beat New Zealand in Afghanistan on Sunday.
Ashwin: Rahul Dravid is very knowledgeable
Although India has no control over Sunday’s result, it has a great opportunity in Friday’s game against the Scots.
Eligible to participate in the main draw, Scotland has been competing with most of the top teams and even pulled New Zealand to the limit before dropping on Wednesday. Therefore, it will be keen to continue in the same way.
Rahul Dravid, a new starting point for new challenges
The Indian batsmen have regained their sense of touch and they will be eager to show their strength against Scotland in the first confrontation between the two countries in the T20I match. In 2007, the India-Scotland match was eliminated in South Africa.
India will take advantage of the tiny opportunities provided. “We know that if we lose any game from now on, we will be out, so we have to win everything. When you are in this situation, you have to play fearlessly and don’t think too much about what is happening elsewhere. What happened,” Rohit said.
“Decision-making can sometimes be a problem. This is exactly what happened in the first two games. We are a very good team. It’s just that we did not perform well against Pakistan and New Zealand that day. But yes, the game we played today , It can almost be concluded that we are such a team. When we compete fearlessly, this is what we get.”
It will be interesting to see if India is going to the party again.
