“We expected the pitch to have something in it, with the weather around. We knew there will be help for the seamers. Which is why you saw that 130 was not an easy chase. I thought we fought well till the end but South Africa played well in the end,” Rohit stated on the presentation ceremony.

“The pitch is such that the wicket can come any time for the seamers. It was a match-winning partnership from Miller and Markram. But we were not good enough on the field. We have played in such conditions so conditions are not an excuse. We want to be consistent in that department.”

“(At the 10-over mark) the dialogue was to attempt to up the intent. When you try this, that’s when alternatives come your approach. Fortunately issues did go our approach and we had been in a position to get that momentum. “Our batting line-up is in good kind barring myself. It’s a batting unit that’s been collectively for some time. To come by in stress moments will increase the fellows’ confidence.

“We watched the games that were being played here and decided on the lengths. The variable bounce assisted us. We backed our execution, fortunately it came off for us. “We don’t like that tag (favourites), we’ve come into the tournament as not the favourites. We’ll keep flying under the radar.
