Rohit Sharma reflects on India’s lack of bravery in 1st Test loss to England

1 min read

Rohit Sharma was disappointed with the performance of the Indian team in their second innings and believes they “overall failed as a team” as they lost the match by 28 runs. He mentioned that when the team is in a difficult position, they need to be brave and show character, but he felt that they didn’t do that in their second innings. Despite taking a 190-run first-innings lead, England managed to make an impressive comeback, with Ollie Pope scoring 196 runs and helping them secure a 230-run lead. Rohit acknowledged Pope’s performance but felt that the target was achievable on a surface that wasn’t posing too many challenges. He also defended the performance of India’s bowlers, saying that they executed their plans well. However, he admitted that the team didn’t bat well enough in the second innings. Despite the loss, Rohit praised India’s lower-order batsmen for their fighting spirit and hoped that the rest of the team would learn from their performance in the first game of the series.
