Rohit Sharma defends India’s reverse swing after Inzamam’s allegations | The Express Tribune


Indian cricket captain Rohit Sharma has responded to former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq’s allegations regarding India’s ability to reverse swing the ball early during their Super 8 match against Australia in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Ahead of the semi-final against England, Rohit urged critics to understand the playing conditions before making accusations.

“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.

India’s victory against Australia secured their spot in the semi-finals, where they will face England in Guyana today.
