Result: India won by 71 runs
Rohit Sharma: It was a good all-round performance, something that we were looking for. Before the game, we were qualified but it was important to come out and play the way we wanted to play. (On SKY) What he’s doing for the team is remarkable. Playing and taking pressure off batsmen as well – it’s quite important from the team’s perspective. We know his ability and it allows the other guys to take some time as well. With the confidence, he shows when he bats, the dug-out can be at ease. He’s shown a lot of composure. This is something that we expect from him and he’s gone from strength to strength. (On the semifinal vs England) The key for us will be to adjust to the conditions as quickly as possible. We’ve played a game there recently but England will be a good challenge for us. They’ve been playing some good cricket. Two teams going at each other, it’ll be a great contest. We don’t want to forget what has got us here, we just need to keep sticking to that and understand what each individual needs to do. It’s going to be a high-pressure game. We need to play well. If we do play well there, we have a good game ahead as well. You need to adjust quickly and plan accordingly. They (fans) have been brilliant, coming and watching us. Almost everywhere we’ve gone, we’ve got a full house. We expect nothing less in the semifinal. Hats off to them, on behalf of the team I want to thank them.
Craig Ervine: We could have changed a couple of plans, Surya did extremely well in the back end and countered Richie’s (Ngarava) wide yorkers. We could have taken pace off the ball there. Credit to him, he came out and changed the game. Leading into the tournament, we had some positivity upfront with the bat. In the last couple of games, we went away from that fearless cricket and we went into our shells a little bit. If you just stand there and let it swing, there’s a good chance that you’re gonna nick off or get bowled. You need to be more proactive. Our last few results didn’t go as planned. We did good work to get into the Super 12s. We’ll be building on that. We fielded really well, especially catching. The boys fought really hard throughout the World Cup.
Suryakumar Yadav Player of the Match: I think the plan was very clear when I and Hardik were batting together. He said we should take a positive route and we started hitting the ball and never stopped. I think the atmosphere in the team is really nice and so is the build-up towards the knockout, really looking forward to that game. My plan has always been clear, I do the same thing in the nets, I practice the same shots. I bat according to the situation and what the team needs. It feels really good, to be there (number 1 ranked T20I batter). You got to start from zero every time, that’s what I think. It’s good to see people come out, let’s see how it goes in the next game.
Weather and Pitch Report:
Only the first World Cup game out of five played in Melbourne thus far was undisturbed by rain. The previous three were washed out, and the previous one, between England and Ireland, was shortened. Fortunately, there is no rain scheduled on Sunday. Expect some aid for seamers due to the fresh pitch, but batters should love the ball coming into the bat.
