Indian captain Rohit Sharma wasn’t amused when asked about the comments made by former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq on Arshdeep Singh’s bowling. During the T20 World Cup match between India and Australia, Arshdeep found some reverse swing at the backend of the innings. Inzamam questioned how Arshdeep was reversing the ball so early, indirectly accusing the Indian team of using unfair measures to change the condition of the ball.

Rohit Sharma Responds to Inzamam-Ul-Haq

Rohit Sharma didn’t pay much importance to the accusation and indirectly asked cricket experts like Inzamam to use rationale. He explained that dry pitches and the day games were enough to reverse the ball. Ahead of the T20 World Cup semifinal against England, here’s what Rohit said:

“What answer will I give? If you are playing under the sun and the wickets are this dry, the ball will reverse on its own. The ball is reversing for all teams. Not just for us. Sometimes, it’s important to open your mind (use your brain). You have to understand where we are playing. We are not playing in England or Australia” Rohit Sharma stated.

India won their final Super Eight game against Australia by 24 runs, and Arshdeep Singh’s performance contributed significantly to their victory. As the focus shifts to the crucial semifinal clash against England, Rohit Sharma’s response emphasizes the importance of considering the playing conditions before making accusations.

Dry pitches and hot weather are known to be conducive to reverse swing—a natural phenomenon bowlers can exploit with their skill. The winner of the semifinal will face off against either South Africa or Afghanistan in the grand finale on June 29 in Barbados.
