After India’s loss to Bangladesh in a low-scoring thriller by one wicket, India captain Rohit Sharma made no secret of the fact that his batting unit needs to show remarkable improvement in how to deal with spinners on tacky tracks on Sunday. Sharma’s comments came after India’s loss to Bangladesh by one wicket.
A partnership of 51 runs between the 10th wicket combination of Mehidy Hasan Miraj and Mustafizur Rahaman helped the hosts of Bangladesh surpass a goal of 187 runs in 46 overs. Mehidy Hasan Miraj and Mustafizur Rahaman represented the 10th wicket for Bangladesh.
However, it was left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan (5 wickets) and off-spinner Miraj (1 wicket) who shared the majority of the spoils during the Indian innings. This was due to the fact that the visitors found it difficult to negotiate the slow bowlers on a track that had turn and bounce.
“The pitch was a little difficult, and the odd ball was turning,” he said. You need to be familiar with the rules of the game. “There are no excuses, we are used to such types of situations,” Rohit remarked during the post-match presentation ceremony. “We are used to such types of conditions.”
“We need to look at how to bat against their spinners in these conditions,” the captain said. “We have a lot of work to do.” The genes are there, and these guys have spent their entire lives playing in such harsh environments. Pressure management is of the utmost importance.
” While the last wicket partnership pulled off a heist after being 136 for 9 in the 40th over, Rohit Sharma did not run away from the core problem, which is incompetent batting.
The number of runs was insufficient. Additional 30–40 repetitions would have made a significant difference. We might have been able to make it there if we had KL and Washy. Unfortunately, we lost wickets in the middle of the match, and it is not easy to make a comeback,” the captain of the Indian team stated.
In spite of the lacklustre performance of his bowlers in the final thirty minutes, he praised them. “The game was decided by a single point. We should be really proud of ourselves for regaining our footing in the game.
We did not bat well. We bowled fairly well and maintained the pressure on them right up until the very end. They were able to keep their composure in the last moments.
“If you look back at how we bowled, of course the last few overs where we would have liked to get a wicket, we kept taking wickets all through,” the skipper looked at the positives. “If you look back at how we bowled, of course the last few overs where we would have liked to get a wicket, we kept taking wickets.”
The following match will also take place in Mirpur, and Rohit has high hopes for a stronger performance there.
“I have no doubt that these men will grow from this experience, and we are looking forward to the next matchup. It is my hope that we will be able to turn things around. “In these circumstances, we are fully aware of what actions are required of us,” he stated.
