Worried about injury
After the victory, Karthik said, ‘I did not talk much with Rohit. He was trying to tell me what the bowler would do now. All this has to be seen as a middle order batsman. It feels good to score winning runs. Rohit with the bat and Axar standing with the ball, nice to see Bumrah back. You want to play such tough matches but more importantly we are happy to present a good show for the audience without any injury. Actually, the ground was slightly wet due to rain and in such a situation, the players are more prone to injury.
