IND vs AUS: Captain Rohit Sharma reflects on Australia series defeat against India ahead of World Cup: In the months leading up to the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup later this year, India skipper Rohit Sharma has pledged that his team will continue to attack with the bat at all costs.
India lost to Australia by 21 runs on Wednesday in Chennai, a result that ultimately cost Rohit’s team the series and the No. 1 ODI team position. India’s aggressive batting approach once again proved to be their downfall.

When a cautious approach may have been more appropriate, a number of seasoned players disappeared during India’s run chase at MA Chidambaram Stadium. But, Rohit wants his squad to continue playing aggressively in 50-over cricket.
“We have always talked about fearless cricket. If someone feels they can take the bowlers on, we have given them complete freedom to do that,” Rohit said after the loss.
“While doing that, there is a big possibility that they might not be able to achieve what they want to achieve, which is fair, and fine by us. You will learn by that.
“We will definitely not judge based on couple of poor shots. All these guys have lots of potential, they can play these shots whenever they want and we want to keep encouraging them to go out there and do it often.”
Suryakumar Yadav’s performance during India’s match against Australia raised some questions, as the explosive right-hander set a regrettable record by being dismissed for three straight golden ducks.
Ashton Agar, an Australian spinner, claimed the crucial wicket of Suryakumar on Wednesday, shifting the tide of the match in his favour by eliminating both Virat Kohli and Suryakumar in the span of two balls.
“He only played three balls in three (games) this series, so I don’t know how much to look into it,” Rohit noted.
“He got three good balls, to be honest. Today, it wasn’t that good ball; he should have gone forward. He knows best. He plays spin so well. We have seen that over last couple of years.
“That’s why we held him back and give him that role for the last 15-20 overs where he can play his game, but it’s really unfortunate he could only play three balls. That can happen to anyone.
“But the potential and ability is always there. He is just going through that phase right now.”

Instead of being reluctant to drop the Indian players for their poor performance during the series, skipper Rohit Sharma jammed up and praised Team Australia for their efforts to bounce back from the series opener.
He said:- “It’s a collective failure and we can take a lot of learnings from this series,”.
“But credit to the Australians. Both the spinners applied the pressure, and so did their seamers.
“You are born and brought up on these wickets. Sometimes you need to apply yourself and give yourself a chance.”
