Despite a brilliant start in the first ODI at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, Australia failed to capitalize as the visiting team was bundled for a sub-par total of 188.
“To an extent, we might have gotten carried away watching Mitch bat and how well he struck them and then thinking the score might need to be higher than what was necessary.”
“There was a bit in the wicket. We need to be a bit better with our techniques and figure out how we’re going to play that. I think KL’s way of batting and blueprint looked about right,” Stoinis was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.
We didn’t sum the conditions up well enough: Stoinis
“We didn’t sum the conditions up well enough and didn’t score enough. We’re experimenting with a few different combinations, playing eight batters. We understand that if we’re going to play eight batters, we still need to play a certain way up until the 35th over or whatever it might be, and then when the time comes we can assert some authority on that with our back-end power hitters,” he added.
