Match Report: As the 2021 T20I series between India and New Zealand begins, let’s have a look at a Rohit Sharma special innings. Here are top 4 Sixes of Rohit Sharma from the first T20I match.

Kane Williamson: “A disappointing performance from us in all areas. One that stands out is the fielding. We were very poor there. I don’t think we can use the ground conditions as an excuse.India were superb and played better. When you’re chasing a total like that which was certainly many above par, you do need to take risks. It was disappointing but we will be back in Rajkot. We couldn’t quite use the spinners the way we would have liked to, which was to control the rate of scoring, but they bowled very well. I would like to congratulate Ashish Nehra on a fabulous career. Always a gentleman.”

Virat Kohli: “Very clinical performance with the whole team. I thought the wicket was damp but Rohit and Shikhar were outstanding. And with the ball as well, we were brilliant. The bowlers bowled where they should and the fielders backed it up. That catch by Hardik Pandya is one of the best I have seen. Shikhar’s one-day game is so good and he always wanted to convert that into T20 as well.

I think his adaptability was spot-on today and he unleashed all the shots he had. In T20 cricket, you need to keep picking wickets to win games and it’s always nice to have options. Using Hardik at 6 and Axar at 7 gave us those options. As a captain, you always need an extra option to pick wickets. That was back in 2003 after he had come back from the World Cup. I was 13 then and struggling for a place in the school team.

To have played 19 years is very hard for a fast bowler. I know how professional he’s been and how hard he’s worked. He deserved this kind of a farewell with the crowd cheering him. He can now spend time with his family, he’s got a beautiful family. We’ll stay in touch but we’ll miss him and I wish him all the best.

Rohit Sharma: “I was very happy with the way I batted today. It was needed because I hadn’t really performed in T20 internationals. It wasn’t an easy wicket. Dhawan started slowly, so I took over and did the scoring. I feel like I can play anywhere on the ground. I’ve got all the shots. All three formats are very important for me. I love all three formats and I love this game. I’ve got the belief that I can perform in all three formats and I make sure my processes and fitness are in place so I can compete with 25-year olds.”

Ashish Nehra: “One thing which will definitely be at peace will be my body. I said earlier that I can go a couple more years, but there can’t be a better time to walk away. I must be the one bowler who sent down the last over most number of times for India.

But those times were different; there was no pressure today. The game has changed a lot since I started playing. I played my first game here in 1997. The rules have changed and so many runs are being scored. But whatever happens, this team is here to stay. The future of Indian cricket is in safe hands for the next six-seven years. I have played under many different people, but it has been a memorable journey.

I was telling Viru also this; he scored so many runs, but people still call him Multan ka Sultan, so you are remembered for a particular moment.”
