Inzamam names one Indian batsman who can break the backbone of opposition
Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq is happy to see India performing well in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup. After defeats against Pakistan and New Zealand, the Men in Blue have registered back to back wins in the competition.
Inzamam feels India have got their selection right in the last two matches. With R Ashwin back in the Playing XI and Rohit Sharma opening the batting, he reckons India have nailed the right balance.
“India’s selection has gotten better, and I say that because they included Ashwin and made Rohit open in the XI. In the second match, they made Rohit bat at 3 and showed that you are not confident about your players. Rohit is the kind of player in ODIs and T20Is who can change the game single-handedly and the start he gave against Rashid Khan, who is Afghanistan’s main – really ensured the momentum going India’s way,” Inzamam said on his YouTube channel.
While Rohit Sharma was unstoppable against Afghanistan, he scored a valuable 30 runs in India’s win over Scotland. Speaking on Rohit’s performance, Inzy further added that Rohit is a class player, who can break the backbone of the rivals.
“Such an attack breaks the backbone of the opposition. When he hit Rashid for 2 sixes, the other bowlers also got demotivated. This is Rohit’s class. His USP is that he attacks the best bowler in the opposition team. He was terrific the other evening. Shami, who was under so much pressure after the Pakistan match, delivered and picked up 3 wickets. India finally played like the team it is known for,” the former captain pointed out.
