Adarsh Singh | Player of the Match:¬†Feeling great. The plan was to bat cautiously as there was movement early on. I played every ball on its merit. We lost two quick wickets. Uday and I spoke that we didn’t have try anything different. The boundaries were big, we just had to hit in the gaps and convert singles to doubles. It wasn’t easy to score boundaries but we focused on our running. We have played a quadrangular series against Bangladesh in India. In one of the matches, I got out playing a false stroke. My plan is to always play according to the ball. Cover drive is my favourite shot.
