After conceding 307 runs in the Bangladesh innings, the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side crashed to 228 all out and need to win the next match to stay alive in the three-match series. Rohit, who top-scored with a well-made 63 in the 79-run loss on Thursday, feels the bowlers should strike early.

"The wicket looks quite similar to the first game. generally the wicket here tends to play similar throughout. Tactically, we need to understand where we lacked in the first game. It's always important to take wickets up front that is something, which we will be focussing on. To get early wickets. It always builds pressure when you take early wickets that were missing in the first game," Rohit today said at the pre-match press conference.

"Their batsmen kept going after our bowlers. We need to get wickets early in the game, which puts a brake on momentum and slows the run-rate. We have quality bowlers and hopefully they can do better tomorrow," he added.

The much fancied India did cave in against the hosts, but Rohit insists the 'Men in Blue' will come back with better planning in the next game.
