Sharma deservedly won the Player Of The Match title in the post match ceremony, where he highlighted how he knew what he had to do in the match as an opening batsman.

“That’s what I have to do (in the powerplay), try and see what the bowlers are doing, play accordingly.” Rohit said while accepting the POTM title.

“Yeah, I’ve seen Rohit do that a few times now. Yeah, he’s a world-class player, so if you’re a bit off your game that can happen.” Hazelwood said in the post match press conference.

“It just looked like he obviously targeted that short, sorry the boundary with the wind there for a while and then we probably reacted, and then he hit a few the other side as well so he’s a class act and you expect him to do that a couple of times through a tournament,” He added.
