Cricketing Circle Applauds India’s T20 Victory Against New Zealand Under Rahul Dravid
On Friday, India won the three-match T20I series against New Zealand by seven wickets under newly appointed coach Rahul Dravid.
T20 captain Rohit Sharma’s new role also began on a triumphant note after the late T20 World Cup matches in the UAE and Oman.
Responses to the debut series victory under Dravid and Rohit came from all cricketing circles, including some former and current cricketers and sports critics.
The entry of talented Venkatesh Iyer in the T20 squad added more spark to the Indian Team. He performed brilliantly and has a long way to go in cricket.
Rishabh Pant took to Twitter to express his sentiments about the series win. He quickly steered towards the final T20I match versus New Zealand, played on November 21 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer posted a funny meme clarifying how the series forgot for the visiting Team. He did that in a particular style:
Cricketing expert and commentator Ayaz Memon was very impressed by India’s pursuit. He likewise explicitly referenced Ravichandran Ashwin and Harshal Patel for putting on a splendid act with the ball to limit the New Zealand players to a lower aggregate.
Dravid and Rohit could experiment in the third T20I with the game already in their kitty.
Series gives a more significant boost to the confidence of all the players. India showed a positive spirit during the match as they chased 154 runs with 16 balls remaining. Brilliant chase, yet the bowlers performed excellently, especially Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, and R Ashwin, who restricted the blackcaps to 25-30 runs. Wicketkeeper and batter Rishabh Pant finished the game in style.
