Rohit Sharma also appreciated the miraculous innings that Pat Cummins produced. He said that they never expected Cummins to go this big in the game. “Never expected him (Pat Cummins) to come and play like that. Lots of credit. The pitch got better and better to bat as the game went on. It was holding up initially. Overall it was a good pitch. With the bat, we did not start well, in the last 4-5 overs to get 70+ was a great effort from the batting unit. We did not bowl according to the plan. We had the game till the 15th over, but then Cummins was brilliant,” he said.
