Rohit Sharma, a team member of the test series squad was declared as the Man of the Match for his tremendous performance in the 4th test match. However, he believed that Shardul Thakur deserves the Man of the Match title for his all rounder performance. Rohit Sharma said, “I thought Shardul’s was a match-winning effort. To be honest, he deserved the Man of the Match as well for the performance he put. A crucial breakthrough for the team when England were 100 without loss, getting that crucial breakthrough was very important and then getting the wicket of Joe Root as well, he came in and got the wicket.” He continued and said, “He wants to prove a point that he can bat and can give us momentum-changing innings as well. Yes, I got the Man of the Match, but I really feel he should have been part of that as well.”
