While after the defeat, Rohit was asked about the dismissal in the press conference and he once again expressed his disappointment but this time in words.
“I felt disappointed. The umpire saw it 3-4 times and made his decision. It’s not about out or not out, it’s about having proper information about anything not only catch, it can be about anything. I was a little disappointed that the decision was taken quite quickly when a catch like that was taken. It was the final and important stage of the match too. More camera angles would have been shown, there were just two angles,” Rohit said in the post-match press conference.

Rohit also questioned why more technologies were not used by the umpires as he didn’t check many angles before taking the decision.
“We have more angles in IPL. We’ve 10 different angles in the IPL, I don’t know why in a world event like this there was no ultra motion or any kind of zoom image shown that is why I was a little disappointed,” the Indian skipper added.
