MAUKA MAUKA dance after Ind vs WI Semi Final Match T20 Worldcup 2016
After Chris Gayle issued a warning of sorts saying he will target all the Indian bowlers in the semifinal, Team India Director Ravi Shastri took on Gayle challenge saying, “Bring it on. All our bowlers will target him.”
Although Shastri agreed that India will miss Yuvraj Singh after the ankle injury ended southpaw’s journey in ICC World Twenty20, he refused to go on the backfoot ahead of India versus West Indies semifinal clash in Mumbai on Thursday.
“It will have an impact. His three overs were brilliant in the last game and that helped us to comeback in the contest because it was no contest after first four overs. At one stage, it looked like 200-plus total and it could have difficult to chase on that wicket. So, he will be missed. It is unfortunate. It was an injury during the game. It is a minor tear in the ankle,” said Shastri.
While India have called in Manish Pandey, they are yet to decide whether he or Ajinkya Rahane would replace the all-rounder in the playing XI in the seminfinal.
