you have to be brave

Rohit said after the match- โ€œWhen you are playing on challenging pitches, you honestly have to be brave.โ€ โ€œI think we allowed their bowlers to bowl at a particular spot. Nathan Lyon was fantastic. He kept challenging us, hitting the right lengths. When the bowler is doing that, you have to come out with your plans and try different things. Be a little brave too, which I think we weren’t.”

Innings like Shreyas Iyer needed

Rohit said Shreyas Iyer, who scored 26 off 27 balls in the second innings, showed the rest of India’s batsmen how to bat in the conditions. Rohit said in the post-match press conference, โ€œWhen you are playing on pitches like this, you need an innings like Shreyas Iyer.โ€ ‘Someone has to step up, someone has to get the bowlers down. It can’t always happen that batsmen will score 100 runs, 90 runs, 80 runs, you have to play those kind of cameos. โ€œIf one of the top batsmen can get a big score, it is a plus point for the team. When you know the pitch, you need to go out there and play Iyer’s way.
