Post Match Statements:
“Back to losing three wickets. We lost a wicket in the first over. Our opening combination is crucial. We lost a wicket to a run-out. We threw wickets away. Put too much on pressure on ourselves.
“Was a gettable total. To sum it up, we needed a better first six. We couldn’t rotate strike. We needed to try different things but we couldn’t. When you get a wide half-tracker you can’t hit it to cover. We should have executed better with those wide half-trackers.”
“It turned a lot in the second half. We know that our spinners use a lot more seam than some of the other bowlers. We thought it’ll slow down. “We didn’t know what’s a good score. That’s why I wanted the bowlers to bowl their best deliveries but not look for wickets every delivery. That’s when you start not bowling well. I felt 166-170 was a good score. But as a batting unit, we can do better.”
