“Right from the start, we were quite disciplined. We wanted to learn from the mistakes which we made in the last game. Today was a great game for the bowling department because I knew the conditions weren’t great for it. But we kept the conditions aside and did the job,” Rohit said at the post-match presentation ceremony. (MATCH HIGHLIGHTS)
“We stuck to our plans. Lot of improvement from the last game, spinners kept it tight, got the odd breakthroughs. The bowlers took wickets early as well, in the first 10 overs was magnificent. It was important to do that because they have quality in there and we wanted to make sure not to make things easy for them,” Rohit added.
The skipper said that he told the bowlers not to panic during the 82-run tand between Babar Azam and Shoaib Malik.
