Sharma said India have a lot of lessons to learn in England loss
India batsman Rohit Sharma admitted his team have a lot of lessons to learn from their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match loss against England on June 30.
“They played better cricket throughout this match. While batting, they had not one but three partnerships. On the other side, we had only one big partnership,” said Sharma in an interview. “They mixed the short ball and the slower ball and forced us to hit at the longer boundaries which was a lesson for us for our next game.”
“Losing an early wicket always puts you under pressure, and we lost KL right at the start, and they bowled pretty well in the first 10 overs,” added Sharma.
Sharma also commented on batsmen MS Dhoni and Kedhar Jadhav’s performance in the last five overs. Jadhav and Dhoni were unable to chase 71 and only made 39 runs. The Men in Blue ended their game with a score of 306/5 in 50 overs.
“When MS and Kedar were batting, I think they were trying to hit, but they were not able to because of the slowness of the pitch,” stated Sharma. “You’ve got to give credit to the English team because they used the conditions really well.”
India’s next match will be against Bangladesh today at Edgbaston Cricket Ground. The Men in Blue currently have +195 odds to win the entire World Cup.
