“I don’t think we bowled well. 200 is a good score to defend, and we didn’t take our chances on the field. It was a great effort from our batters, but the bowlers were quite not there. There are things we need to look at.” The disappointed captain of the Indian cricket team said.
Before signing off from the presentation ceremony, The Captain of the Indian National Cricket team also praised Hardik Pandya for playing some extraordinary shots in his sensational innings, the skipper also added that as a team they will have to do some work on the bowling unit before the next matches.
“We were not able to take their wicket. That was the turning point. If we would have taken wickets, things would have been different. You can’t score 200 every day, you need to bat well. Hardik batted really well to get us there. We need to look at our bowling before the next game.” The captain added.
