Reporter – Wheater you are surprised to see pant at number four ahead of in-form Pandya. Rohit Sharma gave an EPIC replay and said,
“All you guys wanted Rishabh Pant to play, right? All you guys, right, from India? Where is Rishabh Pant? Where is Rishabh Pant? There he is at Number 4.”
“I think, for someone like him also to come and play, he needs some time in the middle to spend and see what the pitch is doing, get used to the condition as quickly as possible. So I think it was the right move for him to come at that number because, again, we know what he can do with the bat. He just needs confidence because, obviously, playing his first game, expecting a lot is not right at the moment from him, but he should just come and play and enjoy his cricket. When he does that, he does well,” Rohit Further added.

Rohit also praised Eoin Morgan” s boys for playing quality cricket under pressure. “The England team, they played complete cricket. They bowled really well. They batted really well. They got the result,” he said.
“Losing wickets put you under pressure and we lost KL at the start. They bowled well, so it is only natural the guys who are in form bat as long as possible,” he said.
“Virat and I decided to put on a partnership. We took a long time, yes, but those were the conditions,” he explained.
