What did Rohit say after the match?

After the match, Rohit Sharma said, “Today was a very disappointing day. We batted well in the last over. We couldn’t bowl better. It was purely a matter of bearing the pressure in the knockout matches. All the players have played enough cricket to understand this situation. Many players have played pressure matches during IPL. We looked under pressure while bowling. Their openers (Jos Buttler and Alex Hales) have to be given credit. Both batted brilliantly. I think swing was coming from the first over but we didn’t bowl in the right direction. We took the pressure off in the match against Pakistan. Something similar happened against Bangladesh too, but today we could not do it.
