While many may assume that Ravindra Jadeja was promoted up the batting order as there were not many balls left to play in the 1st T20, it wasn’t the case. Unlike Sanju Samson, Jadeja is an automatic choice in all three formats, especially in white-ball cricket. And the team management wants to see him bat more. Against Sri Lanka in the remaining two T20s, there could be a repeat of that.

“He is a very improved batter, so we will try and see if we can promote him going forward. We are very clear with what we want to achieve with him in white-ball cricket,” Rohit Sharma said.

“I know Ishan for a long time now. I know the mindset he has. I know the ability he has as well. It was just about getting the kind of game that he had today. It was so pleasing to watch from the other end. The way he constructed the innings was so good, that is usually a challenge for him. We were talking in the middle about finding gaps,” Rohit Sharma said.

With a 62-run win over Sri Lanka, India took a 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series. Both teams will now lock horns in the second T20I on Saturday.

Speaking about his performance and team’s fielding, Rohit said,” I love playing on big grounds, because that is when you will be tested as a batter. Here you got to use a bit of batsmanship as well. In Kolkata, you just needed to time the ball.”

“It’s consistently happening. We are dropping easy catches. Our fielding coach has some work to do. Come Australia, we want to be a great fielding side,” he added.
