The Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma was delighted to see the way India completed a chase of 165 runs on Tuesday against West Indies in the third T20I to take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series. Rohit had immense praise for Suryakumar Yadav and Shreyas Iyer who made a brilliant partnership of 86 runs to help India get over the line. On Tuesday at Warner Park, India took a 2-1 lead in the five-match series with seven wickets an over to spare.

Suryakumar Yadav starred with the bat as he amassed 76 off 44 balls with eight fours and four sixes to get the job done. He got some support from Shreyas Iyer, who hit 24 off 27 balls after Rohit Sharma had to retire hurt due to back concerns. Coming at No. 4, Rishabh Pant (33* off 26 balls) did the rest to take his side past the finishing line with ease.

Speaking at the post-match presentation, Rohit Sharm said, “We used the condition and our variations really well. And then how we chased. It was quite clinical. When you watch it from the outside you felt there wasn’t much risk taken. (Suryakumar’s innings) It is very important that if you get a start in this format, you should convert it.”

He further added “It does well for the team. The 30s and 40s look good, but when you get past 70-80 and get a hundred as well then you’re scoring those runs for the team. Good partnership with Iyer. When you are chasing a target like that anything can happen. It was not an easy target and the pitch had something for the bowlers. It was important for us to pick the right shots off the right balls.”
