New Delhi: The Indian cricket team, captained by Virat Kohli, defeated England by 157 runs in the fourth test match played at the Oval ground. Team India is now ahead 2-1 in this five-match series. Rohit Sharma, the team’s opening batsman, played an important role in winning India in the fourth Test. Rohit made India’s comeback in the second innings in the match, for which he was also given the title of man of the match. But Rohit believes that he should not have received this award.
Told this player the claimant
Rohit Sharma believes that he should not have got the Player of the Match for the fourth Test, but Shardul Thakur was the biggest contender for this award. After the match, Rohit said that Shardul used to deserve this title more than me. Talking to BCCI TV, he said, ‘It shows the effort that we have put in the series so far and this is not the end, we know there is one more match still to be played in Manchester.
Rohit further said, ‘I thought Shardul Prayas was going to win the match. To be honest, he deserved the man of the match for his performance. Shardul took England’s first wicket and gave important success. Then taking the important wicket of Joe Root was special. How can we forget his batting, scoring 50 runs in just 31 balls in the first innings and then scoring 50 runs in the second innings says a lot. He loves his batting and he has worked hard on it, I have seen him for many years.
Shardul’s performance was special
Shardul Thakur’s performance in the Oval Test against England can never be forgotten. Shardul made a quick half-century in the first innings when the Indian team was going to be all out on the score of 120-130. Apart from this, once again in the second innings, Shardul made an important partnership of 100 runs with Rishabh Pant playing an innings of 60 runs. At the same time, his performance with the ball was also excellent and he took important wickets of Joe Root and Rory Burns in the second innings.
The batsmen also did amazing
In the first innings of this match, where the Indian batsmen were completely flop, in the second innings everyone did wonders. Team’s hitman opener Rohit Sharma played a brilliant century of 127 runs. At the same time, Cheteshwar Pujara played an innings of 61 runs. Apart from this, Rishabh Pant scored 50 and Shardul Thakur scored 60 runs. At the same time, captain Virat Kohli played an innings of 42 runs. Team India managed to make 466 in the second innings only on the strength of the batsmen’s excellent performance.
