This is the first T20 series win for Rohit Sharma since he was appointed as the permanent captain of the T20 team. Rohit Sharma’s performance throughout the series was phenomenal. Rohit Sharma also won the Man of the Series award. After the final match, Hitman revealed the secret behind his trademark pull shot.
‘I grew up playing on cement pitches and concrete pitches. My approach changed when I started to open up in my career. I can not say that I got the ability to play pull shots naturally. I have done a lot of training to play those shots, ”said Rohit.
‘I’ve been out a lot of times trying for a pull shot. If you have a talent you should bring it out without thinking about getting out. Short pitching is one of my skills in playing balls. So I will try to play such shots and get maximum results .’- Rohit added.
