KL Rahul He was very impressed with his bowling unit, which restricted the hosts to less than 200 in the first ODI here on Thursday in a 10-wicket win over Zimbabwe. Rahul, himself returning to international cricket after more than two months, decided to continue with the crack opening pair Shubman Gill And Shikhar Dhawanwho added 192 runs for an unbroken opening stand.
“It was important to pick up wickets. There was swing and seam movement too. But it was nice to see them (the bowlers) being disciplined and putting the ball in the right areas,” the captain said at the post-match presentation ceremony.
“As best as can be, I’m on the field and I’m happy. We play a lot of cricket, injuries are going to be a part of it,” said Rahul.
“It’s tough to be away from the game. Rehab and everything gets boring everyday. We would rather play 365 days a day than be with a physio. For some of us, it’s great to be back in the Indian dressing room.”
Was nervous initially, says Chari,
It is really tough to play international cricket after a gap of six months and he was nervous initially, seamer Deepak Chahar said after his successful comeback with figures of 3/27.
“When you are playing an international game after six-and-a-half months, you are always nervous. Before coming here, I played four-five practice games. But playing for the country, you wanted to do well and have the brain and mind. mind. body wasn’t working together,” he said of the start of his spell, where he looked uncertain about his run-up.
“That ball I wanted to throw a bouncer and the spikes didn’t hit and I slipped. The landing area was a bit rough and my nails weren’t going in and were slippery.”
Enjoying batting with Gill: Dhawan
Dhawan is enjoying a purple patch in ODI cricket and his partnership with Gill is in the news.
After scoring an unbeaten 81, Dhawan said, “I am enjoying batting with the youngster (Gill) and I also feel like a youngster. I enjoyed the consistency of West Indies. I knew that once When I’m set, I’ll go after the bowlers.” On 113 balls.
“I also wanted to rotate the strike and then speed up the plan. I’ve got my momentum going well with Gill. The way he bats and the ball is lovely to watch. He converts half-centuries into big half-centuries.” I have shown consistency.”
