A shattered Rohit Sharma is lamenting a “disappointing” World Cup semi-final efficiency and his facet’s incapacity to capitalise on the Indian Premier League.
The partnership of 170 between captain Jos Buttler and comeback man Alex Hales is the very best for any wicket in T20 World Cup historical past.
Buttler pummelled 80 from 49 and Hales smashed 86 from 47 as England thrashed India by 10 wickets at Adelaide Oval.
“It’s pretty disappointing. I thought we batted pretty well at the back end, but we were not good enough with the ball. We just didn’t turn up,” Sharma mentioned.
“It’s all about handling pressure (in the knockout phase). We have played enough IPL cricket to understand that. The way we started off with the ball was not ideal, which shows we were a bit nervy.
“You need to give credit score to these openers too; they performed rather well.
“The new ball swung a bit for Bhuvi (Kuamr) but not from the right areas. We wanted to keep it tight on the stumps. That’s a little disappointing. If you don’t execute your plans, you’ll find yourself in trouble.”
The partnership of 170 between Buttler and Hales eclipsed the earlier T20 World Cup document of 168, posted by South Africa’s Quinton de Kock and Rilee Rossouw within the teams stage of this event.
Proper-arm fast Mohammed Shami was the costliest of India’s bowlers, leaking 39 runs from three overs.
