Virender Sehwag Praises Two Indian Players In 1st ODI Against West Indies, Says “They Didn’t Make Mistakes Like South Africa”
‘He has made a brilliant comeback- Virender Sehwag lauds Rohit Sharma for his Performance in 1st ODI against West Indies.
The main concern after India’s 3-0 defeat in South Africa was the lack of intention of the middle-order batsmen. As Virender Sehwag told me after chasing 177 in Ahmedabad on Sunday, the series against West Indies this was not the case in the first match.
In the 1st ODI match, Rohit Sharma and young Ishan Kishan gave India a good start and shared an 84-run partnership for the first wicket. After this brilliant start, India quickly lost 3 wickets.
According to Sehwag, this time Team India did not repeat the mistake that they had made in South Africa. India lost the series against South Africa 3-0, largely due to the middle order. Because in all the three ODIs, the middle order of the India team could not perform much.
But in the first match of the ongoing 3-match ODI series against the West Indies, Team India’s worries were over. Because in the middle order, Suryakumar Yadav and Deepak Hooda made a good partnership adding 62 runs and chasing 177 runs in 28 overs gave the team victory. Before this pair, India had lost 3 wickets.

In an Instagram video posted on his account, Sehwag expressed that he thought West Indies would regain control after three quick dismissals from Rohit, Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant, praising Hooda and Suryakumar as India Didn’t make mistakes while playing in South Africa. In ODIs last month, “Rohit Sharma has made a solid improvement after missing out on the South Africa tour. Apart from his captaincy, he also made important contributions with the bat, Virendra Sehwag stated.
“It was not a lucky day for Rishabh Pant. Looking at India’s inexperienced middle-order, it looked like West Indies would make a comeback. Deepak Hooda and Suryakumar Yadav did very well and ended the game which we have not seen from our middle-order and lower middle-order players in South Africa,” concluded Sehwag.
