After this, when you were 88 runs behind in the first innings, we had to bat better in the second innings. But unfortunately we could not do that. Regarding the WTC final, Rohit Sharma said that we have not yet thought about the World Test Championship in Ahmedabad. Meanwhile, we have to think and understand what we did wrong and where we went wrong. We also have to consider where we have to improve further. Rohit Sharma said that you have to do even better on challenging pitches. But we probably gave them opportunities again and again by feeding them i.e. Australia at one place. Also Rohit Sharma said that we can learn something from the batting of the first two matches. He says that in one match we can play badly. We wanted and expected some players to lead us to victory, but it did not happen, so we fell behind in the match and lost in the end.
