Dinesh Karthik said that Team India captain Rohit Sharma has played well in the ongoing second test match against West Indies at Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain. Karthik said Team India performed well on the third day, Rohit Sharma rotated the bowler well and gave so much overs to the fast bowlers in the middle.
“I have played a lot of Ranji matches where we end up playing on really dead pitches. I think the one in Trinidad is not a dead pitch. There is something happening from the rough. But for the fast bowlers, there is not too much in it.
“I thought Rohit handled his fast bowlers well, giving them spells, bringing them back, and also bowling the spinners quite a bit.
“When reverse was in play, he made use of all the bowlers. (Mohammed) Siraj bowled beautifully. So there is not too much to dig into for the sake of it if they could have done anything different. If even a mediocre batting unit decides that they just want to defend, it is going to be really hard.”
“If that happens even in 40 to 45 overs, they will still have 45 overs to bat, and I am pretty sure that they will get somewhere between 200 to 220.”
