” Felt we needed to get early gates. Didn’t do that. We seemed like we had enough. India bowled well. Wicket was on the slower side, felt it was difficult to keep scoring on it. Would’ve been a various game had we obtained early arches. We kept shedding arches in the middle overs. We shed the video game however did a great deal of ideal points. Felt like we were 10-15 runs brief. However early wickets might’ve transformed the video game today,” claimed Pooran in a post-match discussion.
