Rohit Sharma responds to allegations from Inzamam-ul-Haq

Inzamam had pointed out that Arshdeep Singh managed to reverse the ball in the 15th over, which he found unusual.

Indian captain Rohit Sharma responded to the statements made by Pakistani former cricketer Inzamam-ul-Haq.

A former Pakistani cricketer while talking on a sports show in Pakistan questioned the ability of Indian bowler Arshdeep Singh to swing the ball in the Super 8 match against Australia. A journalist asked for the comments of Rohit Sharma on Inzamam-ul-Haq’s statement in a press conference.

“What answer will I give? If you are playing under the sun and the wickets are this dry, the ball will reverse on its own. The ball is reversing for all teams. Not just for us. Sometimes, it’s important to open your mind. You have to understand where we are playing. We are not playing in England or Australia,” Rohit Sharma said.

Inzamam had pointed out that Arshdeep Singh managed to reverse the ball in the 15th over, which he found unusual.

“Arshdeep Singh, when he was bowling the 15th over, the ball was reversing. Is it too early [for reverse swing] with the new ball? This means the ball was ready for reverse swing by the 12th or the 13th over. Umpires should keep their eyes open [to spot] these things,” Inzamam said on a local news channel.
