We learnt from our mistakes in series opener: Rohit

By The Assam Tribune

AUCKLAND, Feb 8: India on Friday bounced back with a clinical performance in the second T20 International against New Zealand and stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma said it was a result of quickly learning from their mistakes.

India suffered their biggest ever defeat in T20s in terms of runs at Wellington on Wednesday but the visitors went to the second game with the same team.

The captain led from the front, scoring 50 off 29 balls to ensure a seven-wicket win for India, their first in a T20 on New Zealand soil.

�Very pleased to see how we bowled, and we were quite clinical with the bat as well. We have quality in our side, but we executed our plans better today, after learning from our mistakes,� said Rohit at the post-match presentation.

�It�s important to understand the mistakes that we made � it�s been a long tour for everyone. So we didn�t want to put a lot of pressure on the boys, just go in there with a clear mind.�

The series decider will be played in Hamilton on Sunday. � PTI
