Bumrah's Test selection is a lesson for youngsters: Rohit

Bumrah's Test selection is a lesson for youngsters: Rohit

The last two times these sides have squared off in a five-match One-Day International series, it was 10-0 to India.

Today, Rohit will take charge of the Men in Blue after regular skipper Kohli opted for a break.

Sri Lanka should consider replacing him with Dhananjaya De Silva or Sadeera Samarawickrama. "Today was an eye-opener and we need to regroup and do well". So it will be no different. Had we had 70-80 runs more we could have had a game on our hands.

"I firmly believe that there were two massive moments in the game". Rohit, however, was not surprised by Dhoni's show of character. Rohit stated that Dhoni has been in that situation so many times to understand the situation better than anyone else. "We lost the game with the bat and not with the ball". But the process and basics of captaincy, of leading any team will remain the same.

"I don't think we played any rash shots, they bowled in the right channel, kept us guessing all the time and batsmen were made to play all the time". So, it will be all about going out and executing and making everybody comfortable.

"I don't need to change anything, I just need to carry from where we left as a team". IPL and worldwide cricket is completely different; the pressure and mindset of the players is absolutely different. For me also, I will not change a lot. The hosts have tried ten players at No. 4 since the 2015 World Cup.

Kedar Jadhav suffered a hamstring injury and has been ruled out. "It's important that they take the opportunity". We thought we could bowl them out for 40 runs or so.

India's stand-in captain Rohit Sharma on Saturday said that Jasprit Bumrah earned his maiden Test call up after the pacer's hard work.

"I think it's a great boost for him [Bumrah] to be part of the Test team", said Rohit. He is looking forward to it. For a while he has been wanting to be part of the Test team. "It is all the reward for what he has done in the ODI format and the T20 format", Rohit said when asked to comment about his IPL teammate. Over the previous year and so, how he has improved himself, on his bowling and fitness as well.it is a reward for all of those things and it shows. It is reward for all of those things. It's a lesson for all those cricketers that if you put in all those hard yards, you will get the result.you will get rewarded.

"He has played with me for MI and I have only seen him grow every game". If you give conditions that suit him, it doesn't matter to whom he bowls. Being focused and disciplined in terms of his work ethics and that is what is giving him the results on the field.
