Indian skipper Rohit Sharma on Sunday made no excuses for his team’s poor batting performance against Australia.

“We didn’t bat well enough. We couldn’t have got out for 117 on that pitch.” “We didn’t apply ourselves. Even when you lose a few wickets early, it is important to build that partnership so that you can get back in the game. Yes, that’s about it. I don’t think we batted well enough.

nothing to worry about

Although the top order has failed in the first two matches of this series, the captain refused to press the panic button.

“There are two games now. The top order was on fire in our last six ODIs. So, not much to worry about.”

“Our people have enough experience. All the players who played today have played a lot of ODIs, so it is about handling the situation well, and today we failed in that,” explained Rohit.

Meanwhile, Player of the Match Mitchell Starc felt the wickets in the Powerplay had set the game in his favour.

“(It) was a complete bowling performance from us; The fact that we took wickets in the powerplay allowed us to attack even more at the backend of the powerplay and throughout the innings. Similarly, with a low total chase, you can be aggressive through the powerplay and Mitch (Marsh), and Travis (Head) batted well,” said Starc who took the first four wickets.

Explaining his bowling style and plans, Starc said, “For a long time my role has been to try and take wickets in the powerplay, and that means I bowl full length compared to Cameron Green or other players.” Am.” Squad.

“So, yes, that means I’m probably going to be more expensive at times, but I’m trying to bring in all the methods of dismissal.”
