India’s stand-in captain Rohit Sharma admitted that mistakes on the field were a big factor behind the loss against Bangladesh in the first T20I at the Arun Jaitley Stadium here on Sunday.
Wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim slammed a brilliant unbeaten half-century as Bangladesh chased down the 149-run target with three balls and seven wickets to spare to register their first-ever T20I victory over India.
“Not to take the credit away from Bangladesh. They put us under pressure right from the start when we were batting. It was a defendable score, but we made mistakes on the field,” Rohit said in the post-match presentation ceremony.
