After the disgraceful exit from the semi-final stage of the T20 World Cup against England by 10 wickets, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma expressed his disappointment. Arriving post match to speak, Sharma seemed shattered and was critical of his side's performance.
Blaming his side for not being upto the mark, he was visibly unimpressed by his team's handling of pressure. Especially mentioning that all the players in the setup are very well versed with pressure they deal in the IPL.
He also commented on his team's performance in this entire tournament which he felt was commendable except for this game.
"Pretty disappointed how it turned out today. We batted well at the back end to get that score. We were not up to the mark with the ball, we couldn't turn up today. It's all about handling the pressure in knockout games. All these guys have played enough to understand that. These guys have played under pressure in IPL games, it's all about keeping calm."
India were thoroughly beaten by the English side and will now leave for New Zealand to play 3 T20Is and 3 ODIs beginning from 18th November.
