We played a few rash shots: Uday Saharan

Indian U-19 skipper Uday Saharan admitted to lapses in batting discipline, and acknowledged erratic shot selection in their final defeat against Australia in Benoni. The team faltered, bundled out for 174 chasing 259, with Adarsh Singh (47) and Murugan Abhishek (42) showing resistance. Saharan emphasised the need for better shot selection. Despite their efforts, the Men in Blue couldn’t muster the required runs, signalling areas for improvement in their approach to future encounters.

“We played a few rash shots, couldn’t spend more time at the crease. We had prepared, but couldn’t execute. It was a very good tournament. I am very proud of the boys, they all played very well. They all showed great fighting spirit from the start, very proud of them,” said Saharan as quoted by Sports Star.
