India captain Rohit Sharma says poor bowling in middle innings contributed to ODI loss . Rohit says bowlers couldnt resist a long shot at 270 .
India captain Rohit Sharma said on Wednesday that poor bowling in the middle innings, as well as the batters' inability to form partnerships, contributed to the visitors' loss in the three-match ODI series in Bangladesh.In Mirpur, India lost by five runs in the second ODI on Wednesday, ending the three-match series 0-2.There are both positives and negatives to losing a game.From being 696, our bowlers couldnt resist a long shot at 270.This happened in the final game as well.At the post-match presentation ceremony, Rohit said, It's something we need to work on, and on the batting front.It's about partnerships, he said, and if you get those, you need to ensure that they are converted to match-winning partnerships.For the club to win games, you must convert those 70-run stands into 110-120 run partnerships, as it isn't easy for the new batter. India had Bangladesh on the mat at 69 for six before last match, and hero Miraz (100 off 83 balls) stitched an epic 148-run partnership with Mahmudullah (77 off 96) to push the hosts to a fighting total, according to Rohit.You will need to try and supervise them because it's important to understand this.When they play for India, they must be at least 100 percent.We have to monitor their workload because we can't allow guys in to play for the country half-fit, Rohit said.Rival captain Litton Das was ecstatic after winning his first series as captain, saying it felt good. Dont know what their chats were like, but what they said was simply outstanding.I wanted to rotate my main bowlers around because it was a grassy field in the second half, so I couldnt afford to bowl too many of my main bowlers early on.Das said that the next game will be about winning and that his hard work over the past few years has paid off.I have made a lot of noise in the batting and concentrated on certain areas of improvement,Miraz said.I was just trying to hit the good areas with the ball and put pressure on them, and Riyad Bhai (Mahmudullah) kept reminding me that we must continue playing deep into the innings, and that the conversations were mainly about keeping small joint goals in mind.Report: Report: A Brazilian Icon Pele has moved to Palliative Care, Not Responding To Chemotherapy.
