Team India is clashing with Sri Lanka in the 33rd match of ICC World Cup 2023. Sri Lankan captain Kushal Mendis won the toss and invited India to bat first. Team India has not had a good start and captain Rohit Sharma has returned to the pavilion after scoring just 4 runs. Dilshan Madhushanka sensitized the hitman with his excellent ball and clean bowled him.
Actually, Rohit Sharma started the inning in his style by hitting a four on the very first ball of the innings. However, Rohit completely failed to understand the second ball that came from Madhushanka's hand. The Sri Lankan bowler's best ball passed between the bat and pad of the hitman and his off stump fell away after being hit by Gulati thrice. Rohit lost all four wickets to Madhushanka and returned to the pavilion after scoring just four runs.
Even though Rohit Sharma returned to the pavilion cheaply against Sri Lanka, his bat has spoken strongly in the World Cup 2023. In 7 matches, Hitman has so far scored 402 runs at an average of 57.43 and strike rate of 119. Rohit played a memorable inning of 131 runs against Afghanistan. At the same time, the Indian captain's bat also spoke fiercely against Pakistan and New Zealand.
The Indian team has not made any changes in its playing eleven. Hardik Pandya is not fully fit yet and due to this he has not been included in the final eleven. The Indian team has also entered this match with three fast bowlers. Mohammed Shami and Siraj will support Jasprit Bumrah. At the same time, in the spin department, captain Rohit has faith in the pair of Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja.
