In the primary T20I, India’s frailties with the ball had been laid naked as Australia gunned down a formidable 209-run goal moderately comfortably for a four-wicket win in Mohali on Tuesday. KL Rahul (55 off 35 balls) and Hardik Pandya (71 not out off 30) helped India submit a frightening 208 for six after Australia put the hosts in to bat. Australia had been dominant within the run chase, romping dwelling in 19.2 overs. Last yr’s World Cup hero Matthew Wade (45 not out off 21) and Cameron Green (61 off 30) performed particular knocks to make brief work of a stiff goal.
After the loss, India skipper Rohit put the blame squarely on Indian bowlers. Experienced seam bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar conceded 52 runs in 4 overs, whereas Harshal Patel was taken for 49 runs in his full quota. Leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was hit for 42 in 3.2 overs.
“I do not assume we bowled properly. 200 is an effective rating to defend, and we did not take our probabilities within the subject. It was a fantastic effort from our batters, however bowlers had been fairly not there. There are issues we have to have a look at,” a disenchanted Rohit stated on the presentation ceremony.
“We know it is a high-scoring floor. You cannot chill out even when you get 200. We took wickets to an extent, however they performed very well. They performed some extra-ordinary pictures. If I used to be in that altering room, I might count on to chase that complete. You can again your self to get 60 runs within the last 4 overs. We weren’t capable of take their wicket,” he added.
