It was India's greatest misfortune by run-edge in Wellington on Wednesday as New Zealand beat India by 80 runs and take a 1-0 lead in the three-coordinate T20I arrangement. In any case, captain Rohit Sharma has upheld his young men and furthermore supported why the group played eight batsmen in the arrangement opener. Regardless of the nearness of such huge numbers of batsmen, the Indians could oversee just 139 in answer to New Zealand's score of 219/6 in their 20 overs. 

"It was an extreme amusement. We were outflanked in every one of the three divisions. We didn't begin well and we realized that 200 would not have been a simple pursue despite the fact that the grounds are little here. However, we continued losing wickets and that misled us. We have pursued such focuses before and that is the reason we played with eight batsmen," he clarified. 

Rohit said that the absence of associations was one of the prime motivation behind why the Indians — known to be quality chasers — couldn't come even near the New Zealand all out. 

"We didn't have little associations and that made it extreme while pursuing such a major target. In any case, New Zealand however played well, they had associations that enabled them to get such a major score," he said. 

In any case, Rohit is certain that the group will return unequivocally in the second round of the arrangement in Auckland on Friday. 

"We have to go to Auckland, evaluate the conditions and take it forward," the acting captain said. 

He proceeded to include that this group trusts they can pursue down any aggregate. "As a group, we have been great at pursuing down targets which is the reason we play with eight batsmen. We trust that whatever the objective is before us we can pursue it down, however we just couldn't do it this evening," he said.
