India captain Rohit Sharma relegated himself when young batters Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan opened the bats for the team in the third and final T20I against the West Indies. While Ruturaj failed to impress after a score of 4, Ishan Kishan, who failed to get going in the first and second T20I, played some excellent shots en route to a 31-ball 34. Despite agreeing that he played well under pressure, former Indian batter Aakash Chopra said the “questions will be asked” about Ishan’s strike rate repeatedly.
“There was pressure on Ishan Kishan again. He hit well, but the hitting speed is still questionable. That will be questioned repeatedly during the game because of the left-right combination plus destructive and explosive at bat, but he is unable to do that.” that job,” Chopra said on his YouTube channel.
India went on to beat the West Indies by 17 runs in the third T20I to win the series 3-0.
Indian bowlers seized the opportunity after Suryakumar Yadav laid the foundation for a big score with 65 from 31 balls.
While India faltered 93 for four at one point, Suryakumar and Venkatesh Iyer (35 of 19) added 91 runs for the fifth wicket, making India a total of 184 for five.
In response, the West Indies were limited to a total of 167 for nine, despite Nicholas Pooran’s 61-run knockout.
India will now face Sri Lanka in a three-match T20I series, starting on February 24.
The T20I series will be followed by a two-match test series.
