Rohit also said that the team needs to take time for settle down with a new combination. Rohit spoke out on it, “The initial games are always challenging as it is about getting together as a team. It has to do with the changes brought about by auction where you buy and release a lot of players. The challenge is to identify the right combination and field your best side as early as possible.”
