It was a near-perfect win, but not too happy with my knock: Rohit

Sydney: India captain Rohit Sharma was ecstatic with his team’s “near perfect” win over the Netherlands but “not too happy” about his own 53-run knock in the T20 World Cup here on Thursday.
Rohit had four hits to the fence and three maximums in his 39-ball innings as India posted 179 for two and then limited the Netherland to 123 for nine for a 56-run win.
India had scored 32 in the powerplay after losing opener KL Rahul, but Rohit and Kohli added 73 runs off 56 runs.
“Not too happy with my fifty,” said Rohit, who was dropped by Tim Pringle in the fifth over bowled by Fred Klaassen.
“But what’s important is getting runs – doesn’t matter if they are good looking runs or ugly runs. At the end of the day, it is about keeping the confidence up,” Rohit said at the post-match presentation.
It was only his third T20 fifty in 2022 and the innings helped set the platform as Virat Kohli (62) and Suryakumar Yadav (51) lifted the team to a good total.
