IND vs AFG 3rd T20I: Jitesh Sharma OUT, Sanju Samson IN, 2 Changes Team India can make in 3rd T20I against Afghanistan

Veteran Indian off-spinner named Indian captain Rohit Sharma as the most difficult batter to bowl in the last 4 overs in T20I. His comments came after the senior opener’s heroics in the third T20I against Afghanistan at the M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bengaluru. 

Ravichandran Ashwin in a video posted on his YouTube channel said that Rohit Sharma if set is impossible to bowl in the last 5 overs. He said that every bowler in the world would struggle to bowl to the Indian captain in the last phase of the innings. 

Rohit Sharma proved that during the last T20I against Afghanistan. Coming into the match, he was under a lot of pressure because he registered two ducks in the first two games. He looked a bit tentative at the start as the team lost 4 wickets for just 22 runs and was under a lot of pressure. 

However, skipper Rohit Sharma stepped up big time for the team. He first bailed the team out of trouble and once he was set he didn’t look back. He smashed Afghanistan bowlers all over the park and made sure that he marked his comeback in T20Is in style.
