IND VS AUS: Indian team captain Rohit Sharma is very much shaken by the first defeat against Australia. With this defeat, Team India has equalized 1-1 in the series. In this match, the batsmen of Team India set a target of very few runs in front of the bowlers.
Whom he failed to save. The Australian team easily won the match in the 11th over itself. Meanwhile, in the post-match presentation, Hitman blamed the defeat on the batting of the players. Along with this, he has also read a lot of praise for the fast bowler Mitchell Starc of the Australian team.
Rohit Sharma blamed the defeat on the batsmen:
India had batted first after losing the toss. Which proved to be very economical for the visiting team. None of the Man in Blue batsmen could play a half-century in this match. At the same time, the maximum 31 runs also came from the bat of Virat Kohli. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma has been shaken by poor batting. Giving a big statement, he considered the defeat to be the guilty batsmen.
Rohit said, “If you lose a game, it is disappointing, we didn’t prove ourselves with the bat and didn’t put enough runs on the board. It was not a 117-run wicket. Disappointed a lot more than we expected. We never allowed the runs we wanted to score. When we lost the wicket of Shubman Gill in the first over, I and Virat scored 30-35 runs. But, then I lost my wicket and after that, we slowly went on the back foot and could not come back.
Rohit Sharma praised Starc:
Kangaroo team’s fast bowler Mitchell Starc had the biggest hand in spoiling India’s condition. He dismissed both Team India’s openers Gill and Rohit with a score of 32 and sent Surya to the pavilion with a score of zero only after two balls.
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma said about Starc, “Starc is a high-class bowler. He is doing it for Australia with the new ball. He has been bowling according to his strength. Swinging the new ball and taking the oddball away. Kept the batsmen guessing. Marsh has got to be one of the top players when it comes to power-hitting. He pats himself on the back every time he does this. Definitely in the top 3 and 4 when it comes to power hitting.”
Under the captaincy of Hardik, Team India was destined to win the first match of the series. But, under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, the first blow to India has been taken today i.e. on 19th March. The final and deciding match of the series will be played in Chennai on the 21st.
