“We didn’t play well enough to win the game. There were little moments in the game that we didn’t win, unfortunately. We assessed the pitch very well and it was a good pitch to beat. and that score was definitely huntable and we lost our way in the second half of the innings we gave up too many runs at the back and the last three overs missed a few but the way we started with batting we were in a good position to chase, but as I said we lost our way in the second half,” Rohit said during the post-game presentation.
