IND vs BAN ODI World Cup 2023: Post match presentation statements

Rohit Sharma

The IND vs BAN game was on October 19 at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. India defeated Bangladesh by seven wickets.


The losing captain of IND vs BAN, Najmul Hossain Shanto, said,

India are always a very good side, a very capable team and they showed it today. All teams are good, but I think we didn’t play our best cricket, hopefully, we’ll play better in the future. He’s going on well (on Shakib), should be fit for the next match. Tanzid batted well, so did our bowlers, the problem is we didn’t finish well with the bat. Would have been a different ball-game had Litton stayed a bit longer, the batting group has to take up responsibility

Winning captain of IND vs BAN, Rohit Sharma said,

It was a good win, something we were looking forward to. We didn’t start well, but the guys pulled it back in the middle-overs and at the back-end. Our fielding has been superb in all these matches, it’s something that’s in your control, you can put in your best effort. The bowlers were smart to understand what lengths to bowl. Jaddu was brilliant with the ball and the catch, but you can’t beat a hundred. We’re doing well as a group, a medal for all performances in the playing field and that’s something which motivates everyone to do well (speaking about dressing room awards). He (Hardik) pulled up a bit sore, nothing really major to worry. We’ll see how he pulls up tomorrow morning and then plan on how to go forward. Everyone in the squad has gone through pressure, the crowd is coming in big numbers, the stands are full, they haven’t disappointed us, they’ve been brilliant and I’m sure they’ll be louder and louder as we move on”
