Legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar was delighted to see Rohit Sharma return to scoring ways during India’s T20 World Cup 2022 match against the Netherlands on Thursday. India’s all-rounder Rohit has struggled for form ahead of the 2022 edition of the T20 World Cup. The veteran Indian all-rounder produced a rare batting failure in India’s blockbuster match against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup.
Making amends in India’s second Super 12 match on Thursday, Indian skipper Rohit hit a quickfire half-century against the Netherlands at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). The senior batsman smashed 53 off 39 balls to give India a promising start in the 20-over competition. Half centuries from Rohit, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav paved the way for India to win the match against Netherlands.

Restricting the Dutch team to 123-9, Arshdeep Singh (2) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2) shared 4 wickets as India comfortably beat Netherlands by 56 runs. Reflecting on India’s win over the Netherlands, Gavaskar praised the star performers who had an average performance against Pakistan.
“Let’s talk about how India are shaping up. It was good to see Rohit Sharma run the other day, it was good to see Arshdeep bowling like he did. Ashwin and Axar Patel got a couple of wickets. So, everyone involved in this game. “It wasn’t a great match against Pakistan. , we have returned well,” said Gavaskar India today. Legendary Gavaskar celebrates KL Rahul’s low run in T20 World Cup.
While Rohit, Kohli and Suryakumar played crucial knocks for India, Rahul suffered his second World Cup failure on Thursday. “The only concern now may be around KL Rahul who did not deliver too much in both the matches. But it is a classic act,” Gavaskar added. Rahul was dismissed for 9 off 12 balls in India’s previous match. The Rohit-led Indian team will face South Africa in their next Super 12 encounter in the T20 World Cup on Sunday.
