India won the five-match Twenty20 International series against West Indies by a convincing 4-1 margin on Sunday. Riding on Shreyas Iyer’s stroke-filled 64 and spinners’ dominance over Windies batters, India recorded yet another one-sided victory over West Indies by a margin of 88 runs to finish off the series.
The team’s captain, Rohit Sharma, praised the efforts that were made by each individual member of the squad throughout the series and added, “It’s not the end of the road, but a continuous approach will be needed.”
“We have had many discussions about the things that we wanted to do and the ways that we wanted to play. Speaking about it is a quite different matter. And yet another thing I’m attempting to do that involves going out. Everyone made an effort to accomplish it, which is what I believed to be the most important thing to do. The majority of us actually went and completed the task. “So that was very, very pleasant to me,” Rohit said while addressing the players after the win on Sunday, adding that he was happy for the team.
After being called into bat, India reached 188 for 7 in 20 overs thanks to Shreyas Iyer’s half-century, useful contributions from Deepak Hooda (38 off 25 balls), and a cameo from stand-in skipper Hardik Pandya (28 off 16 balls).
Rohit, while praising the team, added that “So we are not one or two people that won games for us but rather all of us did that.” As a result, I found that to be really, extremely satisfying to see. To begin, I would like to express my gratitude for the fact that all of us are purchasing that notion and then going out into the world to actually implement it. Therefore, a lot is required. We gave it a shot, and we were able to achieve success with it, despite the fact that it is not a simple task. On most occasions, we came quite close to achieving our goal. However, this does not indicate that there are no more options available to us. We are going to keep improving the game in its many granular elements.
It is not easy to make adjustments to one’s strategy or frame of mind. To have a good grasp on what the requirements of the team are takes a lot of effort. Individual genius is admirable, but I believe that cumulatively making those small efforts will yield more consistent outcomes.
Rohit commented that the fact that India had used seven different captains across the three different formats this year was a positive indicator for the squad. Rohit was quoted as saying to the broadcasting company Star Sports, “I know it’s very exciting to develop so many leaders around the team… and you want the people to manage the pressure, who understand the game, and who know each other really well.”
