“I like this Rohit Sharma, in this T20s as well. This is the way to play. 100s have to be incidental, they have to be the byproduct of the way which you play and when India sets a platform like that, despite a collapse, India had a lot of runs on the board. This is the Rohit Sharma I like,” Manjrekar spoke on Star Sports.
Manjrekar commended India’s clinical performance in the ODI series
“New Zealand were missing three or four key players but that does not take anything away from India, especially tonight, where they lost the toss. India put the runs on the board, so much so that it almost makes the opposition chase the total down despite the dew advantage.
“This is something that you can keep looking at and enjoy. When a team is sent to bat first after losing the toss, the team that bats second generally gets very close but look at the margin today – a win by 90 runs. So well done by the batters and the bowlers,” Manjrekar added.
