However, in the post-match presentation, Rohit Sharma gave an update about his injury as well as whether he would be present in the next matches or not. He said, “At the moment, it is fine. We have a few days until the next game, hopefully it will be fine.” The captain was injured while playing the third ball of the over. He was about to take the strike, but soon the camera focused on Indian physio Kamlesh Jain, who was running on the ground. After a long discussion, captain Rohit walked out of the field with the physio.
BCCI also gave an update on Rohit Sharma and told that it was a back spasm. The BCCI tweeted from its official Twitter handle and said, “Team India captain Rohit Sharma has a cramp in his back. The BCCI medical team is monitoring his progress.
India’s batsmen put on a power-hitting show after Rohit Sharma’s absence. They chased down 165 runs with ease and won the match by seven wickets. Now India has taken a 2-1 lead in the series. But apart from that the positive thing from the match is that Suryakumar Yadav finally worked as an opener. Indian batsman scored a brilliant half-century. He played an innings of 76 runs in 44 balls, which included 8 fours and 4 sixes. He got the support of Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant in this innings.

After Suryakumar Yadav was dismissed in the 15th over, India needed 30 runs and Pant’s effort was also important in this. Hardik Pandya came to the pavilion after three overs. Pant scored 33 runs in 26 balls, including the winning runs. He also hit a boundary off Obed McCoy. The India captain was seen quite happy with the team’s performance, especially the bowlers, who had restricted the Windies to 164 at one point in the match. The hosts were looking great. He credited Suryakumar Yadav for the victory.
The captain said, “How we bowled in the middle overs was important. I thought we made good use of the conditions. Made good use of variations. It was very important how we followed. When you look from the outside, it didn’t look like too much risk was taken. Surya batted brilliantly. Great partnership with Iyer. The pitch had something for the bowlers, it was not an easy target. Surya played the right shots.
