“We bowled well in patches. We dropped too many catches and left too many runs to chase for the batsmen. The batting was disgraceful. I thought it was a 140-150 wicket and we gave 30 runs extra,” he said.
Praising Ambati Rayudu for his brilliant unbeaten 55 off 29 balls, Lehmann said Saurabh Tiwary also played well but was a bit fortunate.
“Rayudu played well. Tiwary had some luck. We dropped him twice including once earlier in his innings. We are clicking at stages with the ball and on the field but have to click together now. “Hope they will respond quickly, otherwise it will be difficult to make it to the semifinal,” the 40-year-old coach said.
