India’s White Ball deputy captain and batting enthusiast Rohit Sharma is unaware of the status of his abandonment of the fifth test against England in Manchester last month, but his team is in a fierce fight series 2-1. “Winning” is clear in his mind. .. The fifth test in Manchester was canceled because Team India’s junior physio, Yogash Parmar, was found to be COVID-19 positive and in direct contact with the player. This was after some senior members of India’s support staff were also found to be infected.
BCCI agreed to conduct a fifth test in July 2022. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly said this was an extension of this year’s series and not the one-off game England wanted.
“I don’t know what’s going on in the last test match. I don’t know if I’m playing a one-time test (next year), but in my opinion I’ve won Series 2-1.” Rohit said at the event.
Asked if the England series, which scored 150 runs in four games, was a breakthrough for him, he replied, “Given where I stood in my test career, it was a good series.”
However, the 34-year-old batter refused to call it his best series. “This is not my best series. I feel my best hasn’t come yet. Take advantage of the time to the World Test Championship finals in Southampton to understand what skills and ideas you need. I was very happy. And that. “
