Rohit told where the mistake happened
After the 5-wicket defeat against South Africa, Rohit Sharma said that ‘we were given hope that something would happen on the pitch. We knew Simmers would be of great help here. So it was not easy to chase this target. We think we are a bit behind in batting. We fought well but South Africa played well. When you look at the score, you always feel that you are in the game. We got many opportunities today which we could not capitalize on. We didn’t play very well today.
Rohit said that in the last two matches, we were very good in the field. We could not hold our chance. I have seen what happens to the spinners in the last two overs. It was the perfect time for Ashwin to bowl against the new batsmen, Miller also hit some good shots.
