Speedster Prasidh Krishan on Friday stated there was very little margin of error for the bowlers on a challenging wicket as India’s assault crumbled within the face of an England onslaught within the second ODI.
Chasing a challenging goal of 336, Jonny Bairstow (124 off 112) and Ben Stokes (99 off 52) butchered the Indian bowlers, including 175 runs off 117 balls as England gunned down the overall in simply 43.3 overs for a six-wicket win.
“It was a very good wicket to bat on, no doubt. We scored 330-plus and they chased it down in the 44th over. It says it all,” Prasidh, who returned with figures of 2/58, stated throughout the post-match press convention.
“It was a flat wicket, challenging wicket for bowlers where the margin of error was very, very less… It was an onslaught, we got hit quite bad.”
Defending the overall, Indian bowlers appeared clueless as England reached 285 for one in 35.1 overs. A mind-boggling 87 runs have been scored between the thirty first and thirty fifth over with Stokes and Bairstow sharing 17 sixes between them.
“We did have a plan, we did talk about the way they were going about it. We tried our best when we bowled. There were a couple of chances that may have gone our way but we must give them credit for the way they played,” Prasidh stated.
“We must give them credit but 100 percent there is room for improvement for our bowlers as well.”
Prasidh, who simply performed his 2nd ODI, exuded confidence that his workforce will bounce again identical to they did within the first ODI.
“That’s the sport of white-ball cricket immediately. With 4 outdoors for the 11 to 40 overs, that’s certain to occur. I do know we’re going to bounce again stronger.
“It was a same situation last game, we did come back and had a great result for us,” added the Karnataka speedster.
Prasidh was additionally requested concerning the potential ‘run-out’ of Stokes within the twenty sixth over, which wasn’t given by the umpires.
“We are not the ones here to make decisions, the right person was sitting there and I think, whatever he did was all that he could do. We are nobody to comment over that,” he signed off.
