A Nehra is the Man of the Match
MS Dhoni: I was more worried about my bowling because it's a good wicket. We don't really get surprised if the opposition promotes someone up the order. Bhajji batted well in the last game and maybe that's why they promoted him. Our plan was to bowl dot balls at him. At times you want to bat first if the unit wasn't clicking. The reason why we bowled was because of the dew factor. I felt the first few overs were brilliant from our bowlers. We just want the guys to stay in the positive mindframe.
Rohit Sharma: Pretty disappointed with the way we bowled and our attitude on the field wasn't right. I thought 184 was a good score, but we didn't execute our plans with the ball. There's no way they could score 90 runs in the first six overs. I think that's where we probably lost the game. We've been trying and possibly doing everything but it's not coming off, but they played well too. At the end of the day you need to get the combination right, that's what we were trying to do. I know it's not working out. We know we've got to find the right balance. If you don't win, nothing counts. Pretty disappointed to lose the game. We are not thinking anything right now. Relax, take it easy and then think about our next match
