IND vs WI: Skipper Rohit’s experiment fails

Rohit gets out cheaply after batting at number 4

Rohit’s innings comes to an end easily when Dominic Drakes knocks him out through stumps at the iconic Eden Gardens, considering his startling arrival at number four. Rohit is dismissed after hitting only 7 runs in 15 balls.

Rohit trying to step out and hit the ball, fails as the extra bounce helps Dominic Drakes to strike the ball through the stumps.

Rohit Sharma believes he should bat further down the order, which is improbable given that he hasn’t batted lower down the order since previous captain MS Dhoni sent him to begin the innings.

Rohit assigned his two youthful openers, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan, to bat first. In the ODI series against the West Indies, Rohit was observed stating in the conference that he would be leading the team from the back and that he wanted to give the team opportunity and try new strategies.
