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.
Mehidy Hasan Miraj and Mustafizur Rahaman, both of Bangladesh’s 10th wicket, combined for 51 runs to help the hosts surpass a target of 187 in 46 overs. This incredible turnaround was scripted by the 10-wicket pair of Mehidy Hasan Miraj and Mustafizur Rahaman.
However, it was the left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan (5 wickets) and the off-spinner Miraj (1 wicket) who shared the bulk of the spoils during the Indian innings. This was because the visitors found it difficult to negotiate the slow bowlers on a track that had turn and bounce.
“The odd ball was turning, and the pitch was a little bit challenging.” You need to be familiar with the rules of the game. There is no room for excuses because we are accustomed to being in such predicaments. During the post-match presentation ceremony, Rohit made the following statement:
“In these conditions, we need to examine the best strategy for batting against their spinners.” The genes are there, and these guys have spent their entire lives playing in such harsh environments. “Pressure management is of the utmost importance.”
In spite of the fact that the last wicket pair pulled off a heist after the score was 136 for 9 in the 40th over, Rohit did not avoid addressing the fundamental issue, which is poor batting.
“The number of runs was insufficient.” An extra 30-40 repetitions would have made a big difference.We might have been able to make it there if we had KL and Washy. Unfortunately, we lost wickets in the middle, and it is not easy to make a comeback from a deficit of that size, in the words of the Indian captain.
In spite of the lackluster performance of his bowlers in the final thirty minutes, he praised them.
“The game was decided by a single point. We should be very 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 final moments.
“If you look back at how we bowled, of course, in the last few overs where we would have liked to get a wicket, we kept taking wickets all through,” the captain reflected.”If you look back at how we bowled, of course, in the last few overs where we would have liked to get a wicket, we kept taking wickets.”
The upcoming match will also take place in Mirpur, and Rohit has high hopes for a better performance there.
“I have no doubt that these guys will grow from this experience, and we are looking forward to the next match.” 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 said.
