"We were not at our best as a team. Our bowling lacked intensity, and our plans were unclear, resulting in poor execution," expressed skipper Hardik Pandya following their fourth defeat in 12 games.

Mohammed Shami, renowned for his skilful bowling, had an off day, but his team will rely on him to conjure up magic with the new ball.
