Talking on the post-match presentation after India’s seven-wicket win in Auckland, Rohit Sharma mentioned, “More than happy to see how we bowled, and we had been fairly medical with the bat as nicely. Now we have high quality in our aspect, however we executed our plans higher right this moment after studying from our errors,” emphasising that the defeat in Wellington was not far more than a blip for an extremely targeted Indian group who know what they’re doing.
The great signal for India is that they have responded nicely once they have gone behind early within the sequence.

Right here, the large defeat within the first T20I hasn’t perturbed them. They usually look the higher group going into the deciding match.
New Zealand, alternatively, haven’t reacted nicely once they have been put beneath strain. They cantered their strategy to sequence wins towards Sri Lanka in each format, however towards a a lot better opposition in India, they haven’t performed to potential. After the defeat in Auckland, Kane Williamson and co. face a psychological battle after a heavy defeat.
