“Yeah, I mean, look, you could have thought that [going back to a senior player] we did actually think about it, but all these younger players, when are they going to get their opportunity? That’s something that we thought as well,” Rohit Sharma said in the Pre Match Press Conference.

Rohit Sharma has made it clear that though they did enquire about bringing back a senior player. The Indian skipper claimed that the youngsters are playing well and thus deserve their chance in the team.

“Leaving out an experienced player or not considering them is very hard because of the amount of runs they’ve scored, the kind of experience they’ve had, the amount of games that they have won.
