Dhoni said, ‘There was such a phase in the middle overs, when he bowled 2-3 overs well. If we had batted well and not lost 2-3 wickets continuously, we should have been careful in the 5-6 overs of the opening. Sam Curran bowled brilliantly and I think we did a good job in bowling, but the batsmen disappointed the bowlers. It was important to keep changing the strike, but I think there were very few fours and sixes in the last few overs.
