India captain Rohit Sharma stated on Wednesday that the team’s victory over New Zealand in the inaugural T20 International was not easy, but that the players would benefit from the experience.

In Rohit’s maiden match as full-time T20I captain, India blundered at the finish before rallying in time to beat New Zealand by five wickets.

The hosts were on their way to an easy victory. But they botched the chase in the final four overs, allowing Rishabh Pant to take India past the 165-run goal. With a boundary in the penultimate over.

Rohit Sharma said:

“It didn’t come as easy as we expected, so great learning for the guys. To understand what needs to be done, not about power-hitting all the time,”

“As a captain and a team, happy that those guys finished the game off. A good game for us, missing a few players, opportunity to other guys to show their ability.”

According to Rohit Sharma, it appeared that New Zealand might score 180 or more runs at one point. But a “complete bowling performance” prevented this.

Suryakumar Yadav, the player-of-the-match, was also commended for his 40-ball 62.

“Sky (Suryakumar) is a very important player for us in the middle, plays spin well,” said Rohit who made 48 off 36 balls. On his dismissal off the bowling of Mumbai Indians team-mate Trent Boult, he said, “Trent Boult knows my weakness, I know his strength. When I am captaining him I always tell him to bluff and that’s what he did. Happy with the win, first win, always nice.”

“I am happy to be on the winning side.”
