“We were watching the game from the sidelines. We wanted to see how the game was panning out, and how competitive it was,” Captain Saharan said.
“We wanted to gauge the kind of challenges that we’d come across. We watched the ending as well in the hotel, it was a nice game with a close finish. But we’ve our plans, and we’ll execute them [in the final],” Uday Saharan added.
India and Australia will play one another in a major ICC competition final for the third time in recent history.
