After the match, Indian captain Rohit Sharma counted the reason for Team India’s defeat. Rohit said, “I don’t think Australia’s score was big enough. The wicket was definitely a bit challenging in the second innings. I don’t think we batted well. Partnership is important on such a wicket. But, in today’s match we failed to do so. The way the batsmen got out, it is a matter to think about. Because we have grown up playing on such wickets.

Rohit further said, “Many times you have to mold yourself according to the wicket and the situation and give yourself a chance. It was important for a batsman to take the match till the end. We are all trying to do good. But, this could not happen in this match. We have played 9 ODIs since January till now. We can learn a lot of positive things from these matches. This is our collective failure. We will be seen playing in similar conditions after 5 months. You have to give credit to Australia as well.”
