Indian captain Rohit Sharma said after the match, ‘We started well in bowling, but in the middle there was a great partnership between Moeen Ali and Willie. The target was about to chase, but we didn’t bat well. We should have caught that catch, we often talk about dropping the catch. I was surprised to see the pitch, it seemed that it would keep getting better with time but it got more and more difficult.

He further said, ‘To play against such a team, you have to come with your best 5 bowlers and an all-rounder, which has increased our lower order. In such a situation, your top order batsman has to keep in mind that the batsman plays long. We just want to see the situation and change it accordingly. An exciting match is expected in Manchester.
