Rohit Sharma opened up on India’s struggles

Speaking at the toss ahead of the third T20I on Tuesday (August 2) at St Kitts’ Werner Park stadium, Rohit said:

“I don’t know about that. We want to improve in all aspects of the game. But last two series, the left-arm seamers have really done well. But I don’t see it as a concern. There will be bowlers bowling at you, and if you are looking to play shots, you can get out,”

He added: “It’s not that the guys are struggling, it happens when you’re trying to score quickly. But we do need to understand when we come up against certain bowlers, we just want to come out and express ourselves, that’s what we want to continue doing,”
