Indian captain Rohit Sharma suffered a back spasm while chasing a tricky total in the 3rd T20I against West Indies. He had to retire hurt and fortunately he was not needed to bat again for India as Indian top order batsmen finished the game without breaking any sweat.
It would have been a body blow for the Indian side had Rohit Sharma had to miss out of the 4th game of the series. The good news is that the Indian captain has been declared fit and will continue to captain the side. He scored a handsome half century in the first game of the series and in the follow up games, he couldn’t able to get a big score.
He was looking in great touch till he had to retire hurt in the 3rd game. The Mumbai batsman will be hoping to score big and win the game and seal the series for India in the 4th T2OI that is set to happen in Florida.
Rohit Sharma likes to play against West Indies in any format of the game. He made his test debut against West Indies and scored 2 centuries in his first 2 tests. He also averages 57 against West Indies in ODIs including 12 half centuries and 3 massive hundreds. As far as T20Is are concerned, he averages close to 40 and strikes at 140 including 6 fifties and 1 century.
Shreyas Iyer has been a massive disappointment in the series so far. He just couldn’t get going and It is largely down to his inability to play the short balls. His weakness is being exploited by every other bowler he is up against and it is going to be a massive task for Shreyas Iyer to overcome it.
India have Sanju Samson who is one of the effortless stroke makers going around in India. They could give the Kerala batsman a go in the last 2 games ahead of Shreyas Iyer.
