It’s completely the batsmen fault in the last T20 – Rahane. The hosts played very well in their last T20. The batting of the hosts is nice but the bowling and fielding is exceptional.
Dissapointed with Last T20 Loss, It’s batsmen Fault – Rahane
Stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane said that his side performed “pretty well” during the short limited-overs cricket series. India, on their second T20 lost to the hosts by 10 runs. It is some dissatisfaction to the Skipper at the end, because India won the ODIs with 3-0 and they expected the same to be happen in T20 also.
Credits to Indian Batsmen who showed their consistency through out the tour
“Guys played pretty well [on this tour]. We got two hundreds — [Ambati] Rayudu and [Kedar] Jadhav— and Vijay and me got fifties. But still we have to improve as a batting unit. Guys have to lift their game here. There’s always a good thing when there’s healthy competition so we enjoy that. I’m sure this will get Indian cricket better day by day,” Rahane told reporters.
“We are disappointed with this loss but you have to appreciate our boys as well. They have played some good cricket throughout the tour. In a T20 anything can happen,” he added. Rahane said the home team deserved credit for coming good during the last match of the tour.
Credits to the Zimbabwe players, who deserves the win in last match
“We have to give credit to Zimbabwe because I feel they played really well today. Throughout the series they played well. But today their bowling and fielding were really up to the mark. Their energy was pretty good, but I felt their spinners bowled in the right areas. They got two good run—outs and they took a couple of good catches,” he said.
“Zimbabwe took wickets in regular intervals and also fielded well. You have to give credit to them. Their batting was good but their bowling and fielding was exceptional.”
Discussing about Indian team’s performance, the stand-in skipper said batsmen is the reason for this defeat. “We couldn’t build that one partnership to get us through. We were quite comfortable chasing — we needed a run a ball after six overs. We accept that we didn’t bat well,” he conceded.
