Rahul Tripathi Played impactful knock in 3rd T20I against New Zealand in Ahmedabad, scoring 44 off just 22 deliveries and former India coach Sanjay Bangar was thrilled to see him bat in that fashion.
“It was an unfortunate way to get out. Rahul Tripathi knew that he was playing an amazing knock and was in an exceptional rhythm as well but got out unfortunately. It would be less however much you might praise him. He is fully justifying the role the Indian team have given to him,” said Bangar while talking to Star Sports.
“If you see where he scored his runs, he hit a six over the fine leg fielder and hit three fours as well when the short fine leg was placed. He probably sat down beforehand itself to find that area. If he had played the pull shot, it might have gone between the square leg and mid-wicket fielder,” he added.
India defeated New Zealand by historic margin of 168 which is now largest margain of Victory in T20i Cricket.
