We wanted to come out and get those two points: Rohit Sharma
Winning the game, Rohit Sharma shared a lot about their performance and said, "Lucky for us, we had a few days to get over that special win. As soon as the game got over, we came to Sydney and regrouped.
We have to move on now, and the focus was on this game where we wanted to come out and get those two points. I thought it was a clinical win. Looking at the way they have qualified for the Super 12s, credit to them," was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"We however always looked to what we can do with ourselves, not bother about the opposition. To be honest, this was a near-perfect win. Yes, we played a little slow at the start but that was the conversation between me and Virat, we had to wait on that surface to play the big shots.
Not too happy with my fifty, but what's important is getting runs - doesn't matter if they are good-looking runs or ugly runs. At the end of the day, it is about keeping the confidence up," he added.
However, during the game, Dinesh Karthik missed a simple stumping off Axar Patel's spell as Colin Ackermann survives and the fans started to chant MS Dhoni's game.
