Rohit on India’s performance: It was a good all-round performance, something that we were looking for. Before the game, we were qualified but was important to come out and play the way we wanted to play. What he’s (Surya) doing for the team is remarkable. Playing and taking pressure off others – it’s quite important. We know his ability and it allows the other guys to take some time as well. The confidence he shows when he bats, the dug-out can be at ease. He’s shown a lot of composure. This is something we expect from him. He’s going from strength to strength.
RohitC Sharma on semifinal vs England: The key for us will be to adjust to the conditions as quickly as possible. We’ve played a game there but England will be a good challenge for us. Two teams going at each other, it’ll be a great contest. We need to understand what each individual needs to do. It’s going to be a high pressure game. We need to play well. If we do play well, we have a good game ahead as well.
Suryakumar , player of the match: I think the plan was very clear when me and Hardik were batting together. He said we should take a positive route and we started hitting the ball and never stopped. I think the atmosphere in the team is really nice and so is the build-up towards the knockout, really looking forward to that game. My plan has always been clear, I do the same thing in the nets, I practise the same shots. I bat according to the situation and what the team needs. It feels really good, to be the number 1 ranked T20I batter. You got to start from zero everytime, that’s what I think. It’s good to see people come out, let’s see how it goes in the next game.
