KOLKATA: India T20I captain Rohit Sharma has pointed out bowling as the biggest plus of the T20 series for the hosts against New Zealand. He was also in praise of off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, terming him as an attacking option for a team, especially in the middle overs.

"Bowling was our biggest plus in the series. We came back really (well) in the first two matches after explosive starts by New Zealand. To restrict such a strong New Zealand batting line-up in the 160-mark is really commendable. We did well in all the three games. Whenever I go to the ground, I always want to think how many runs we have saved. And, in all the three matches we have saved about 15 runs and also had two run-outs on Sunday," said Sharma in the post-match press conference.

Sharma had special praise reserved for Ashwin, who has picked up nine wickets since making a comeback into T20Is during the World Cup.

"I think it's been a great comeback for Ashwin. He has proved himself with the red ball and even with the white ball, he doesn't have a bad record. The way he has come back and bowled in Dubai and then two games here. It shows the quality that he has. He is always an attacking option for the captain." IANS
