Rohit also said that the Indian batsmen may not have performed well on a batting-friendly wicket but they hope to return to their old form soon. “We didn’t score many runs,” he said. We didn’t bat well. The pitch was good to bat but we could not bat well. But it happens.’
Rohit said, ‘I have been saying earlier also that when you try to experiment something new, it is not always successful. We will look into our mistakes and try to rectify them. West Indies fast bowler Obed McCoy took 6 for 17 as India were bowled out for 138. Rohit praised his bowlers for not allowing West Indies to reach the target easily.
The Indian captain said, ‘I am proud of the team. It’s not easy when you get down to defending such a small target. This target can be achieved in 13-14 overs but we took it till the last over. Taking wickets was important. We strategized accordingly and the bowlers followed suit.
Rohit said, ‘I am happy with the performance of the bowlers but there are some things in the batting which need to be taken care of. I am repeating again that we will continue to bat like this because we want to achieve something. There is no need to panic if a result is not favorable. We are not going to change things after a loss. West Indies scored 141 for five to level the five-match series 1-1.
