Rohit Sharma reacted to criticism on poor shot against Lion
Commentator Sanjay Manjrekar wrote on Twitter, “In a non-experienced team, the experienced Rohit Sharma cannot be saved by making some sort of excuse to play such a shot.” While Rohit was playing for 44, he played a big shot off Nathan Lion’s ball but the ball and bat were not well connected due to which Rohit got a simple catch at long on. Rohit was playing very well at the time when he was out.

However, while addressing the press conference, Rohit Sharma said that he has no regrets on that shot. Rohit Sharma said, ‘I reached where I wanted to reach, just I could not connect the ball properly. I wanted to play between longon and square leg but did not succeed. I like playing the kind of shot I played. This is a good pitch to bat on. Yes, it is also true that this pitch has a lot of bounce but I like it. He said, ‘Once I played the first few overs after that I realized that there is not much swing on the pitch. I was unfortunate to be out but I do not regret it. My role is to attack the bowlers.
