Harshal, who returned from a long-term injury, conceded 99 runs in eight overs in three matches, but Rohit said he should not be judged on the basis of a series. “Harshal is an important player for us. It was not easy to come back from injury. He has not played for almost two months and the comeback is not easy. He should not be judged on the basis of three games in this series because we knows what he can do.
Talking about the team’s performance, Rohit said, “We want to do well in all departments. The batting has been great in the last eight or nine games, but we want to play more aggressively.” On bowling, he said: “Bowling is the main focus. Improvements on the pitch continue and we will continue to do so.” Suryakumar Yadav scored 69 runs in the third match to lead India to victory while Virat Kohli scored a half-century.Rohit said, “We all know about Surya that he can play shots all around the pitch and that is his speciality. He has shone consistently and his innings in this match was special as we had lost two wickets in the powerplay. He made a very useful partnership with Virat at the other end.
