Australia left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc dismantled Team India’s top-order in the second ODI of the series. While fans and cricket experts said Indian batters have a disappointing record against the left-arm seamers, skipper Rohit Sharma refused to accept the shortcoming.
The Men in Blue won the first game by 5 wickets despite Starc taking three early wickets. However, the hosts had no respite as the Lanky bowler added five scalps to bowl out India for 117 in the next contest.
Rohit said it is about the skills of a bowler and not the right-arm or left-arm.
“When you have a quality bowler in the rival team, he will take wickets. Whether it’s a left-armer or a right-armer, they will get wickets. The right-armers have been sensational against us but nobody talks about them,” said Rohit Sharma.
“Wickets are wickets and there is no point in looking too much into the left-arm or the right-arm. Losing too many wickets against a particular bowler is a concern. We have to come up with a better plan against all seamers,” he added.
