“I had a great feeling right at the start. The pitch was good to bat on. Initially wanted to take some time and then assess where we go from there. That’s how it has been for me at this World Cup. The first game against South Africa the conditions were challenging, so I had to take my time. Against England as well the pitch was two paced and wasn’t coming onto the bat as normally I would like to and they used the slower balls really well,” said Rohit Sharma at the post-match presentation while receiving the Man of the Match award for his fourth century of the tournament.
India will now play Sri Lanka in their last league match and tweaking of the side could be expected with the semis coming up right after that.
