The Indian team opener Rohit Sharma defended the puller that led to his dismissal on the second day of the Trent Bridge Test against England on Thursday. Sharma fell 36 points at lunch and tried to compete with Oli Robinson. All he did was guide the ball into the deep hands of Sam Curran. The batsman admitted that he was disappointed to leave before lunch and added that if there is a ball to hit, he will continue to hit the ball.
At the end of the second day of the game, Rohit said: “Like you said this is my shot, so I have to shoot, as we saw in the first hour of the game, we didn’t get any loose The ball, their pitchers are very disciplined,” Rohit said in a post-match press conference after the game the next day, the game was cancelled early due to rain.
He added that it is important to seize chance opportunities because England’s bowlers will not give them a lot of loose balls. Rohit continued, “So, when the ball is there, you have to take the opportunity, you have to punish them. Of course, when the game comes to an end, you will be disappointed. This is how I feel about it (dismissal). “
”But you must also be prepared to pitch, because their bowlers are very disciplined and you can hardly get anything. So, you have to put the ball you shot in your area, you have to let go of that ball, this is what KL (Rahul) and I think, when we hit the ball, we are thinking about the process,” he Added.
The 34-year-old pointed out that there is only a fine line between leaving and avoiding an aggressive stroke. He explained: “If you want to shoot a few shots, we won’t avoid it, we will shoot those shots. If you go out, I mean, yes, you will be disappointed, but you know there are many outs like that and the same The thin line between the pass or the same ball, if it… catches the ball slightly away from the outfielder or five yards left or right, it can be either way.”
Rohit and Rahul added 97 points for the opening wicket, but India suffered a collapse after that, ending the day of shortened rainfall with 4 points of 125 points.
