If he bats via the primary 10 overs, at instances you suppose he has the power to go somewhat bit faster than he has been to date. However, as a captain, you realize the middle-order hasn’t fired, other than Hooda. Should you had confidence within the middle-order and good type, we might have seen him batting extra freely,” mentioned Dasgupta on Sky247.internet presents ‘Not Simply Cricket’ Present on CricTracker.
