After the match, Head termed India captain, Rohit Sharma as the ‘unluckiest man in the world’.
“He’s (Rohit Sharma) probably the unluckiest man in the world,” Head told at the post-match presentation.
Head not only impressed with the bat, he also made his presence felt in the field during the first innings as he took a brilliant catch to send Rohit Sharma packing. He also talked about his fielding, something he worked on and Rohit’s catch was a great moment for him.
“Again, it’s (fielding) something that I worked hard on. I couldn’t imagine getting a hundred, couldn’t probably imagine holding onto that one. Was great to hold on to that catch,” Head said about that catch.
India won 10 straight matches to reach the final on home soil, but were beaten on the day by an Australian side who delivered in all facets of the game.
Be it batting, bowling, or fielding, Australia completely dominated the set-up and Team India looked clueless in the game. The loss couldn’t be attributed to a single player obviously but there were instances where the team didn’t just put up the show.
Batting first on a pitch which is very slow and a tricky surface, had already put India onto the backfoot. Rohit Sharma said he would have batted first only even if India have won the toss.
