Rohit scored his 30th ODI century in the third ODI against New Zealand. At that time the broadcasters announced that it was Rohit’s first century since January 2020. But Rohit was angry about this.. These calculations may be correct. But Hitavu said that it would be better if he knew what actually happened and talked about it.

Captain Rohit Sharma said, ‘Although this is the first century in three years, I have played only 12 ODIs during this period. You must know what is going on. I know it was shown during the broadcast. But, sometimes one has to be careful in such matters. Broadcaster should also show the right thing’ he said.
Answering a reporter’s question whether this is the return of ‘Hitman’, he said, ‘No ODIs were held in 2020. Due to Corona, we are all confined to our homes. We did not play ODIs. I was hurt too. All these things should be kept in mind. We have been playing mostly T20 cricket since last year. At this time there was no better batsman than Suryakumar Yadav. He scored two centuries. I don’t think anyone else has done that,’ said Rohit.
Ranking doesn’t matter: Rohit
Rohit told how he planned with Shardul Thakur, Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli to get New Zealand captain Tom Latham out in this match. ‘Skills should be used in this format. Shardul has that ability. Tom Latham dismissed with a brilliant ball. This was planned by Virat, Hardik and Shardul together,” said Rohit.
The captain praised Shubman Gill who scored a century.
‘There is nothing special to say about Gill’s batting in this series. He understands his game. He played the role of innings facilitator.
With this victory, India has reached the top spot in the ODI rankings. But Rohit said, ‘To be honest, rankings don’t matter. Before this series we were fourth. Don’t know how we ended up fourth after losing a few series. We don’t think much of it. Confidence increases with every series’ he said.
