India captain Rohit and Shubman Gill acquired off to an excellent begin earlier than the latter was undone by a controversial catch from Cameron Inexperienced at gully. Rohit (43) stitched a quick stand with Cheteshwar Pujara (27) earlier than throwing away his wicket, whereas attempting to brush Nathan Lyon.

Manjrekar feels that Rohit “got a little greedy to pick up a few runs”, including that there was a lapse in focus as properly.

“It was just maybe a lapse of concentration in a way trying to get some runs, maybe a bit too eager, but once he went down on the knees, and much to his chagrin, the ball was a little shorter than he would have liked. If it was a bit fuller, that shot would have been executed. So, I have to call that a lapse of concentration. He just got a little greedy to pick up a few quick runs,” Sportskeeda quoted Manjrekar as saying on ESPNcricinfo.

The 57-year-old additionally drew a comparability between Rohit and Virat Kohli, including that the previous India captain, in his prime, would not have given the bowler an identical probability.
