Rohit Sharma Reflects on The Tough Loss: ‘We Gave It Our All’

In a hard-hitting showdown at Ahmedabad, India’s cricket captain Rohit Sharma expressed immense pride in his team’s journey to the final, despite falling short against Australia. Sharma acknowledged the team’s collective effort but conceded they were lacking on the pivotal day.

During the post-match presentation, Sharma candidly admitted, “Honestly, the result hasn’t gone our way. We know that we were not good enough today.” He highlighted the missed opportunity to score 20-30 more runs, emphasizing the importance of a substantial partnership between KL Rahul and Virat Kohli.

Reflecting on the batting performance, Rohit noted the slowdown in the middle overs, emphasizing the need for a bigger partnership. The total of 240, India’s second-lowest in the World Cup batting first, marked a departure from their earlier formidable scores.

Australia, too, faced early setbacks, losing key players in the initial overs. However, Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne’s century stand proved decisive, leaving India chasing shadows. Sharma believed that one more quick wicket could have changed the game’s course.

“We tried everything we could, but I thought the wicket got slightly better to bat on under the lights,” Sharma remarked, refusing to use the changing conditions as an excuse. Despite the early breakthroughs, India couldn’t capitalize, with Head and Labuschagne’s partnership sealing the fate.

Sharma’s analysis focused on the missed opportunities and the resilience displayed by the Australian duo. He concluded, “We knew under the lights it would be slightly better. I don’t want to give that as an excuse; we didn’t bat well enough to put enough runs on the board.”
