It might not meet the desires they had set for themselves. The run from the center order’s form and Trent Boult’s powerplay misfortunes.

You are bound to have a season like that where things will not go the way you want to but that does not change the quality and potential of the team. I’m not going to look too much into it because the quality and potential that we have, and the brand of cricket that we want to play, we might slip sometimes as well,” Rohit Sharma said.
