These veterans not happy with Rohit Sharma’s captaincy

Aakash Chopra said that Rohit Sharma does not often make mistakes, but this time he made a big mistake. According to Aakash Chopra, Rohit Sharma made a mistake by not bowling to Venkatesh Iyer. Actually, Venkatesh Iyer has been included in Team India as an all-rounder in place of Hardik Pandya. Venkatesh Iyer is an expert in explosive batting as well as amazing bowling.

Questions raised on Rohit Sharma’s captaincy

Venkatesh Iyer is being seen as the sixth bowling option in the Indian team, but in the first T20 match played against New Zealand in Jaipur, Rohit Sharma did not bowl a single over to him. Aakash Chopra said on his YouTube channel, ‘Rohit Sharma made a big mistake by not bowling to Venkatesh Iyer. This Indian team needs a fast bowling all-rounder and that is why Rohit Sharma fed Venkatesh Iyer at number six. However, Rohit Sharma did not get Venkatesh Iyer to bowl.

Told this decision completely wrong

Aakash Chopra said, ‘I would say that Rohit Sharma has probably made a mistake for the first time, because usually his captaincy is very good. Venkatesh Iyer could have been bowled. The Indian team was fielding first after winning the toss and the opposing team was also under pressure. That’s why you should have bowled to them, because Deepak Chahar and Mohammad Siraj were not in rhythm.

Team India’s big win

Let us inform that India defeated New Zealand by five wickets in the first T20 match to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. The heroes of India’s victory were Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma, who scored 62 and 48 runs respectively. Suryakumar hit 6 fours and 3 sixes in his 40-ball innings, while Rohit faced 36 balls and hit 5 fours and 2 sixes, but missed by just 2 runs after hitting a fifty.

Dust off New Zealand

KL Rahul was dismissed for 15 while Shreyas Iyer, who returned to the team after being out of the T20 World Cup, did not look comfortable and lost his wicket after scoring five runs. Venkatesh Iyer, playing the first international match, hit Daryl Mitchell for a four, but was caught by Ravindra Rachin in an attempt to play reverse sweep on the next ball. After this, however, Rishabh Pant gave India victory by scoring the winning run. Earlier, with the help of half-centuries from Martin Guptill and Mark Chapman, New Zealand scored 164 for six.
