“We were sloppy in the field and should’ve grabbed our chances,” said the India skipper.The dew also played a big role in the Australia’s innings.
“The wicket remained good throughout, we’ve fallen on the wrong side of the dew in two games, but that’s not an excuse. Ashton played a hell of a knock, Peter Handscomb played a brilliant innings, Usman Khawaja held the innings together.”
“They played better cricket, we got to accept and it’s a record chase, they deserved to win. If we had won the toss, we would’ve batted first (in Ranchi). We had to get the fifth bowler out of the way tonight.If Kedar Jadhav and Vijay Shankar was bowling with the dew, it would’ve been more difficult, so we wanted to get done with it first,” said Kohli.
India opted to bat and made four changes in the game.
Australia captain Aaron Finch lavished praise for his batsmen after the famous win.
“I thought the partnership between Usman and Peter was crucial. To be able to get us deep was unbelievable. To get his maiden hundred was outstanding. When we chased 300 totals in Australia, we were trying to go with the same process. The wicket was good, it wasn’t a panic.”
“The plan was to take the game as deep as we could. Ashton playing his second game and playing a match-winning knock and Peter playing such a knock and Usman coming to form was wonderful. We have seen him (Turner) do that a lot in Big Bash. It was a world-class knock and to take on two of the best death bowlers in the world was outstanding.
