"Pretty disappointing to not get to the finishing line. 210-odd was always going to be tough, and we were in the game right till the end. But New Zealand held their nerve and they deserved to win. We started off well in ODIs, and the boys will be disappointed not getting to the finishing line in the T20s," Rohit said after the match.
Rohit, however, asserted that the Indians will have to take their lessons from the defeat and prepare for the upcoming home series against Australia.
"Lots of positives, and a few mistakes. There's a lot of material to move ahead. It would have been nice to win the series and go home and play Australia. But unfortunately we couldn't do that," he said.
