He will always come on the field with a winning mentality, no matter who the opponent is, no matter who the pitcher is. is one of the best knockouts he has played in his career.He has played a lot, but this will remain a special match for me and all the fans. He was injured and bandaged and he didn’t care. He struggled when he got to the bend. But when your thumb or finger is injured, you can’t hold the stick properly, forget about hitting a shot Rohit just put that pain aside and the way he hits the ball is really commendable He’s a brave and fearless tennis player He played cricket the right way England He will win the match for India if he gets the right support from the other end,” Lad said TimesofIndia.com in an exclusive interview.
