India-Pak match: Rohit credited success to newly born daughter while Sarfaraz refuses to blame the seniors for the defeat

Sharma's cheeky reply left everyone in splits

In the post-match press conference, Sarfaraz Ahmed looked dull and disappointed but confident of making into the World Cup semis.

Rohit Sharma, on the other hand, was relaxed and his cheeky reply to the Pakistani reporter made everyone laugh.

In the 90s, other than the World Cup, Pakistan won most of the contest against India. The fortunes have now turned in India’s favour. “In the ’90s Pakistan had the upper hand, but definitely at the moment India is a better team than Pakistan that’s why India wins more matches,” said Sarfaraz

On asking if he had also wanted to bat first after seeing the result, Sarfaraz backed his decision of bowling first in overcast condition.

“I think we won a good toss. I think we didn’t capitalize on that; when we saw the pitch, there was a little bit of moisture on the pitch, we (wanted to use) the conditions. I think we didn’t hit the right areas,” said Sarfaraz.

Sarfaraz refused to blame the seniors for the loss against India, “I don’t think you can talk about only the senior players, I think you have to talk about the whole team. I think the whole team is not performing well in all three departments, not fielding, not bowling, and not batting.”

From the Indian side, Rohit Sharma attended the press conference.

Rohit’s cheeky reply upon asking what will he suggest to Pakistani batsman to come out from the present crisis, prompted the whole room to burst into laughter.

“Agar main Pakistan ka coach bana to main bataunga, abhi kya bataunga! (If I become the coach of Pakistan then surely I will tell you. What can I say now!),” he said to everyone’s amusement.

Rohit is the most successful IPL captain; he has won 4 IPL titles, including the one he won in May this year. Rohit gave credit to his newly born daughter for the recent success.

“It’s just the space I’m in right now; having a newly born daughter in my life has put me in a really good space. I am enjoying my cricket coming off from a great IPL campaign. Here we were focussed on starting well, and I think as a team, we are heading in the right direction,” said Rohit.
