Rohit Sharma Targets TV Station With “First Hundred ODIs in 3 Years”


Rohit Sharma angrily criticizes broadcaster for showing his century in the third ODI game against New Zealand which was the first in “three years” as the captain pointed out he has barely played any match more than 50 games during this time period for a variety of reasons. As Rohit headed to the deep square to turn into his 30th ODI century in a third game against New Zealand on Tuesday, the broadcaster put the statistic that it was the Indian captain’s first ton since January 2020. While this statistic is correct, Rohit feels it does not convey the correct picture.

“In terms of first percent in three years, I’ve only played 12 (17) ODIs in three years. Three years sounds like a lot,” Rohit told reporters after the game.

“You guys should know what’s going on. I know it’s been shown on TV but kabhi kabhi woh cheez bhi dhyan dena chahiye, tv station ko bhi sahi cheez dikhana chahiye (TV stations should show pictures) exact photo),” he added.

When a journalist further asked if it was a return of ‘Hitman’, a nickname was used for him, Rohit, who beat nine four and six six in India’s 90-run win. Degrees, said: “As I said, there are no matches in 2020.” “Everybody is sitting at home because of COVID-19. We barely played ODI, I got injured so I played two Tests in that time, so you have to put all of that into one perspective. .

“We played T20 cricket last year. And in T20 cricket there is no better player than Suryakumar Yadav at the moment. He hit two hundred and I don’t think anyone else has.” Shardul Thakur turned the game around with his racquet-filled second spell as he caught Daryl Mitchell and Tom Latham’s hits with back-to-back balls before knocking Glenn out. Phillips in his next inning.

“He has a knack for grabs at times that are important for us. We’ve seen that not only in ODI cricket but also in the Tests. He’s very important to us. me and our place as a team.

“So I just hope he continues to put in performances like this and that will only do good for the team and give him confidence that he can come and win trophies. .

“This guy is very smart, he has played a lot of cricket in the country and understands what needs to be done.” He revealed how Shardul, Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli plan to sack New Zealand captain Tom Latham.

“In this format you need to use your skills and he (Shardul) definitely has them. He threw a good fingerball to Tom Latham today (Tuesday), Virat, Hardik and Shardul has great planning in between.” The captain was also full of praise for young Shubman Gill, who was the fastest runner in the series.

“The way he hit the ball in the series, I don’t think much to tell. He understands his game, he rhythms his games well and that’s what we wanted, to go deep and deep into. match.

“No matter how flat the court is, a hundred doubles is not easy and it shows. In that game (first ODI), the next best score was 34, which shows that he is. He’s a man of calculation. He’s had great maturity.” With the victory, India climbed to the top of the ODI rankings, but Rohit was indifferent to this feat.

“Honestly, ranking and all that doesn’t matter. Before this series we were fourth. I don’t know how we were fourth because all of last year I don’t think we lost any series. which match.

“We don’t focus too much on it, we prepare for the big tournaments. We want to be ready for anything. All these series give confidence.”
