The pitch looked okay, we didn't bat well. One twenty six wasn't enough. Lot to learn from this game, hopefully we go back and think about it. We didn't think the ball was going to do that much. I thought they swung the ball early on and out shot selection wasn't that great it cost us the game.

We go to Calcutta from here, we've had some good memories there, we won two titles there. Just the start of the tournament, not to panic
