Soon after the 2020 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the Indian team was playing an ODI series in Australia and captain Rohit Sharma, who won the title for the 5th time to Mumbai Indians, was not part of the team. After the first ODI, when Indian captain Virat Kohli was asked about Rohit’s absence, he gave such an answer, which gave the impression that everything is not right between him and the hitman.
He had said that there is confusion about Rohit Sharma’s injury and he does not have complete information about the condition of the injury. On the other hand, there were reports that Rohit is fit. If seen, it was shocking news for Cricket World, but it was only speculation. Neither of them ever spoke openly on this matter. Now that the Indian team has crushed the world number one team England by 3-2, the distance between Virat and Rohit has also got evidence to prove the rumor.
In fact, in the fourth match of the series, Virat Kohli went out of the ground and Rohit captained the team till the last time to win the team. Now something similar has been seen once again. Virat Kohli, the regular captain of the Indian team in the 5th T20, landed late for the fielding and then went out of the field. During this time only the vice-captain Rohit Sharma was seen captaining. This was a big answer for those who were talking about the estrangement between the two. The bonding between Virat and Rohit was tremendous and it proved to be important in India’s victory.
During the match, there was another winning example of bonding. Actually, if KL Rahul was not there, then Virat Kohli (80 not out off 52 balls) with Rohit Sharma (64 runs in 34 balls) went to the opening. Both of them added 94 runs in 54 balls for the first wicket. In this partnership, most runs from Rohit were collected and Kohli was seen enjoying a strokeful innings at the other end. Rohit was rested in the first two matches. At that time, Virat had been the target of critics for this decision.
Talking about the match, India batted first and scored a huge score of 224 runs for two wickets and then stopped England for 188 runs for eight wickets in the prescribed 20 overs. For India, Shardul Thakur took the maximum three wickets. He took a total of eight wickets in this series. Apart from him, in this match, Bhuvneshwar Kumar took two and Hardik Pandaya and T Natarajan took one wicket each.
