Chennai: India A batsmen dominated the opening day of the warm up game against Australia but Rohit Sharma said the visitors actually have a decent attack and they leaked runs because they were aggressive and experimented a bit with their bowling variations.
Sharma cracked a useful 77 and shared a 128-run stand for the second wicket with centurion Gautam Gambhir (112) as India A piled up 338 for four.
"They have a decent attack. They were trying to attack too much with fielders all closing in and so we could take those chances and score runs quickly. Again it is a different ball game when it comes to Test match. They will be bowling more tight. May be they were trying few things today. We took real advantage of that," Sharma said after day's play.
