Rohit Sharma, who won his 14th successive match as the Indian T20I skipper, lauded his team for putting in a strong showing at Edgbaston.
“We all know how good they are wherever they go, not just in England. We were clear what we wanted to do. When you win games, it’s always nice. The group is also confident, which is very important. We will look to continue and focus on what lies ahead. Wanted to see how we do after a win and will look to challenge us as a group,” Rohit was quoted as saying.
Rohit also lauded Ravindra Jadeja, who scored an unbeaten 29-ball 46 in the second match of the series. Sharma was impressed with the left-hander for the reason that the latter didn’t lose his composure at any stage of the match.
“Brilliant knock under pressure [from Jadeja] and Jadeja, with his experience of the hundred in this ground, was calm and collective. At no point we were feeling he was panicking,” he added.
