The Indian team is batting first in the final of the T20 series against England. In the match, the pair of Indian captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma came into the opening for India. Both of them bowled out 91 runs for the first wicket, smashing the sixes of the English bowlers in 13 overs. Rohit was dismissed for 64 runs in just 34 balls. This is the first time in T20 International that both of them have taken the responsibility of opening. On this, there has been an interesting reaction of former explosive opener Virender Sehwag.
While sharing the picture of Dahi and Jalebi, he wrote – Rohit and Virat’s opening. What a dangerous couple. Let me tell you that England captain Eoin Morgan decided to bowl first after winning the toss in the fifth and decisive T20 match against India at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Saturday.
