Who would have expected a chase of over 300 would be done and dusted pretty easily? Both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma played authoritative cricket to make the big chase look easy-peasy. Meanwhile, the leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal makes a funny comment on it. Chahal said the team felt like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma were playing the PS4 game.
Both the stalwart batsmen knocked brilliant centuries to their name to surpass quite a few records on their way. During the course, they also knocked their sixth double-hundred partnership between them as well.
Myself, Jaddu Bhai and Kuldeep makes a good trio – Yuzvendra Chahal
As far as the bowling section was concerned, Yuzvendra Chahal has been the standout player for the team. He is bowling pretty exceptionally as he gave only 41 runs of his ten-overs quota and also bagged three wickets as well.
Speaking in the post-match presentation, the leg-spinner Chahal quoted that he is working on the certain tactics to deliver the goods for the team. He also spoke about his partnership with Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav.
“On this wicket, we needed to vary our pace, we have to guess what the batsman is doing and bowl according to that. They (West Indies batsmen) were looking to hit sixes, so I didn’t want to bowl the fuller ball. They are strong guys, need to bowl slower in the air, it’s different when the ball spins,” Yuzvendra Chahal said.
”I played with Jaddu Bhai in the Asia Cup, I told him that he could bowl slower on this wicket, we always talk with each other, even with Kuldeep, we make a good trio. We enjoy watching them (Rohit and Kohli) bat, they are two legends of the game, (smiles) at times we feel they are playing PS4,” he added to his lines.
However, in the end, the last night game ended as a one-sided affair. As Chahal terms, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli knocked the ball like a dream to make it look like a PS4 game.
