Rohit Sharma led the Indian team to a crucial 106-run win over England in the second Test to level the five-match series 1-1. Rohit, who came under the scanner for his defensive leadership in the series opener, was quite active on the field at Vizag as he constantly motivated his players while fielding to get the best out of them.
A video of Rohit went viral on social media where he can be seen scolding his teammates.
In the video, Rohit could be heard saying, “mere gale ka waat lag gaya chilla chilla ke tum sab ko (my throat has started to pain because of how much I have been shouting at you guys)”.
The victory helped India level the series 1-1 but England continued to play with their Bazball approach which did manage to put the hosts under pressure.
Defending a 399-run target, India managed to bundle out England for 292 courtesy Jasprit Bumrah and Ravichandran Ashwin’s three wickets each.
Bumrah played a key role with his six wickets in England’s first-innings total of 253 as the tourists conceded a crucial lead of 143.
Rohit heaped praise Bumrah and the bowling attack for producing a collective effort on the field in the second session to wrap England’s innings.
“He is a champion player for us (Bumrah), he has done the job for us for a while When you win a game like that, you have to look at the overall performance as well. We were good with the bat. You know winning a Test in these conditions is not easy. Wanted our bowlers to step up and they did that,” Rohit said in the post-match presentation.
The Indian skipper also talked highly about England’s team and said they have really played an exciting brand of cricket
“Last couple of years England have been playing good cricket. Knew it wasn’t going to be an easy series. Three more to go. We’ll keep our check on it and make sure we do most things right,” he added.
