Rohit Sharma on the post-match presentation, “I said it before as well, thankful to the management for the opportunity. Considering how the series has gone by, I can take a lot of positives, especially how to counter that new ball. The new ball will be a threat anywhere in the world. It’s been a great start, so I don’t want to let it go. That started long back in 2013 when I started opening for India in white-ball cricket. I realised you need to have discipline at the start of the innings. Once you are in, you can play your game.”
“That’s what I have done; I follow a certain template that allows me to have some success. You need support from the management, coach, captain, that has helped a lot. Test cricket is a different ball game, getting that big score will give me confidence moving forward. I was trying to be mindful about that. You need to be disciplined; I kept talking to myself. I wanted to make a big score and get my team into good positions.”
