‘Open your mind..’ Rohit Sharma gives a fitting reply to Inzamam-ul-Haq’s ball-tampering allegation

Inzamam-ul-Haq recently made a headline-making allegation against India's Arshdeep Singh. The Men in Blue thus has come in for aid for his team.

Rohit Sharma has befittingly shut former Pakistani captain Inzamam-ul-Haq’s claims of illicit methods used by India during the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. Inzamam’s sparked controversy by accusing India’s Arshdeep Singh of ball-tampering during the clash against Australia. Inzamam found it suspicious that Arshdeep was able to generate reverse swing after just 15 overs.

Rohit shuts down Inzamam’s accusations

However, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma shut down these accusations during a pre-match press conference before the semi-final against England. Rohit provided a logical explanation based on the playing conditions.

It’s so hot here, plus the dry pitches,” Rohit stated. “If it won’t reverse swing here, where will it? We aren’t playing in England or Australia. Here, the conditions will result in the ball reverse swinging in 12-15 overs. It’s happening for all teams and not us alone. Sometimes people need to open their minds and think.”

Rohit’s answer makes complete sense

Rohit’s reply emphasizes the importance of considering the playing conditions before making accusations. Dry pitches and hot weather are known to be conducive to reverse swing, a natural phenomenon bowlers can exploit with their skill.

The focus now shifts to India’s crucial semi-final clash against England. With the team riding high on confidence, Rohit’s composed response to the allegations will likely only serve to further boost their morale.
