Sydney: India marked win against Netherlands by 56 runs and Rohit Sharma would is clearly very happy with the performance of team. 

After the win, India captain Rohit Sharma said, “Lucky for us, we had a few days to get over that special win. As soon as the game got over, we came to Sydney and regrouped. We have to move on now, and the focus was on this game where we wanted to come out and get those two points.”

“It was a clinical win” –  Rohit Sharma

“I thought it was a clinical win. Looking at the way they have qualified for the Super 12s, credit to them. We however always looked to what we can do with ourselves, not bother about the opposition.

“To be honest, this was a near perfect win. Yes, we played a little slow at the start but that was the conversation between me and Virat, we had to wait on that surface to play the big shots. Not too happy with my fifty, but what’s important is getting runs – doesn’t matter if they are good looking runs or ugly runs. At the end of the day, it is about keeping the confidence up,” he said. 

After batting first, India had post 179 runs after the heroics of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav with half-centuries each.
