After the ODI series win against Sri Lanka, Rohit Sharma said, ‘It is good to have a left-handed batsman in the top order but the players who are being given a chance have scored a lot of runs in the last one year. Ideally we would like to include a left-handed batsman but we know the quality of our right-handers and we are quite comfortable with it at the moment.
Rohit Sharma further praised KL Rahul. Please tell that, because of Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav and Kishan were kept out of the playing XI. In the second ODI in Kolkata, Rahul’s unbeaten 64 off 103 balls was the turning point and the Indian captain was very happy with it.
