After leading India to series leveling win in the T20 series in absence of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, the stand-in skipper is looking forward to final T20 international of the three-match series. He took to Instagram to post a picture of himself from inside the bus with the roads of Hamilton in the backdrop. “Beautiful drive to Hamilton, look forward to one last game of what has been a grueling 3 months,” he wrote.
Captain Rohit Sharma dashed a half-century from 28 balls and Rishabh Pant made an unbeaten 40 as India beat New Zealand by seven wickets in the second Twenty20 to level the three-match series at 1-1.
New Zealand won the first match by 80 runs on Wednesday. The final match is on Sunday at Hamilton.
“I was very pleased with the way we bowled to start with and then it was very clinical with the bat as well,” Sharma said.
“Something like that we were expecting. We’ve got quality in our side. It’s just that we didn’t execute our plans in the first game and we learned from our mistakes. We executed those plans in this game and we got the reward for it.”
