With the help of a 121-run partnership between openers Mitchell Marsh (66 not out) and Travis Head (51 not out), Australia defeated India by 10 wickets to level the series at 1-1. After the match, in the post-match press conference, Rohit Sharma was asked questions about the absence of fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah. On which the Indian captain said that Bumrah’s injury and his subsequent absence is something that the team has become used to.

Rohit Sharma said, “Jasprit Bumrah has been absent for more than eight months now. People and the team are used to it now. However, it is very difficult to fill Bumrah’s place. We all know the quality of bowler he is, but now he is not available to us. Let us not think about it now.

The Indian captain further said, “We have to move forward and people have taken responsibility very well – (Mohammed) Siraj, (Mohammad) Shami, Shardul (Thakur). We have also got Umran (Malik) and Jaidev (Unadkat).” If we look at the last few years, right-arm fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been in and out of the Indian set-up due to his injury.

Rohit Sharma admitted in the post presentation after the match that Indian batsmen could never manage themselves with the bat. He said, “It is disappointing. no doubt about that. We didn’t play to our potential. We didn’t prove ourselves with the bat. We always knew that runs are not enough. It was not a pitch of 117 at all. by no means.”

Rohit Sharma then praised Mitchell Starc and said, “Mitchell Stark is a quality bowler. He has been doing this for years with the new ball for Australia. He has been bowling according to his strength and we kept falling in front of his strength. This is something that we need to understand and play accordingly. All their bowlers bowled really well and put us under pressure.”
