After bowling Sri Lanka out for 50 on Sunday, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma was unable to contain his excitement at his fast bowlers’ performance and stated that the diversity they provide the squad is crucial. The Asia Cup final between India and Sri Lanka was won by India by ten wickets thanks in large part to a fantastic six-over session (6 for 21) by pacer Mohammed Siraj. “Watching fast bowlers execute in this manner gives me a great deal of satisfaction. The fast bowling (at their disposal) is something that all the captains take great pride in, and I am no different. At the post-game press conference, Rohit stated, “We have a wonderful collection of quick bowlers.

“Each of them possesses a unique combination of abilities and variations; some are quick bowlers, some can swing the ball, and some can get good bounce. It is a feel-good factor when you have all of these components on one squad, remarked Rohit.

After an uninterrupted seven-over spell that produced six wickets, Rohit said that Siraj was so high on adrenaline that it took a directive from the team trainer to stop the pacer from bowling.

“Watching Siraj bowl from the slips was very enjoyable.” More than the other two, he was able to move the ball. When Siraj was bowling that spell, we were following him on the ride, the captain recalled.

“He bowled seven over during that spell, and the trainer told me we need to stop him right away. He was really anxious to bowl,” Rohit remarked with a smile.

Rohit clarified that he has no intention of giving Siraj another chance.

“He bowled a lot—seven overs, to be exact. Siraj was bowling eight to nine consecutive overs when he found himself in a similar predicament against SL in Trivandrum, the speaker said.

Kuldeep Yadav, a left-arm wrist spinner who was eventually named “Player of the Tournament,” received plaudits from Rohit as well.

“Kuldeep performed admirably under pressure. Despite scoring a low score, we won the Super 4 match against Sri Lanka because to his effective bowling. Over the past two years or so, his confidence has increased. In each circumstance, he brings the team back into the game, according to Rohit.

The Mumbaikar claimed that the team’s Asia Cup victory came at the perfect time and that they learned a lot from the competition in preparation for the upcoming World Cup.

“Under duress, the boys executed their roles throughout the entire competition. Although our fielding performance was somewhat below average in a few games, overall, especially in slip fielding, it was excellent.

“We will have off days on the field, which is fine as long as you bounce back well the next day,” he continued.
