It was tough to see as a coach, because I know how hard these guys have worked, what they've put in, the sacrifices they've made," Rahul Dravid said in a press meet after the match.
Sunil Gavaskar disappointed
Sunil Gavaskar also expressed his disappointment over Virat and KL Rahul opting for more boundaries instead of singles. "Those were the overs which I feel they shouldn't be taking too many risks, but not taking too many singles means those 20-30 runs should have come very handy. So we are 241 instead of suppose 265-270. There was always that fifth bowler they could target and there was no rush at that stage because the Marshs and Heads...those were the 10 overs that they should have targeted and that didn't happen," he told Star Sports.
