Kolkata. Setting a revised target for themselves after a massive onslaught at the hands of Rohit Sharma’s talent in the ongoing series, Sri Lankan team management is now looking to chase down only his score of 264, instead of India’s 404.
“It is Rohit Sharma’s day, so we thought to keep it that way,” Sri Lankan coach told Faking News, “Also, it will be a good match practice for us for the World Cup.”
“As the World Cup is in Australia, where even such a poor bowling and fielding effort by our team would mean a max 270-280 by opposition, we think chasing Rohit’s score will give us valuable experience,” the coach explained how chasing 264 was all the more logical.
Cricket experts have hailed Sri Lanka’s decision and claim that if successful, it would take Sri Lanka straight to the top of ICC’s Moral Victory ranking, a ranking that was dominated by India in 1990s.
Bookies, however, are not giving Sri Lanka a chance even for that, and argue that on the basis of the way Sri Lanka have performed so far, it would be realistic for them to chase Virat Kohli’s score and claim victory.
Meanwhile, shocked by Rohit’s brutal display, his trolls have gone into hiding till Rohit Sharma discovers his old talent again.
