Alliances are important and today we failed to build them.” He said: “The way we came out was disappointing. We have grown up playing in these types of wickets. Sometimes you have to give yourself a chance.
Rohit said: “It was important for a batsman to play to the end. But we were all trying to do our best. But this did not happen. We have played nine ODIs since January, we can take a lot of positive things from them. This is the defeat of the entire team.
