“10-15 run Short…”Aaron Jones candid admission after the USA’s loss against team India

The USA suffered their first loss of the tournament against India by 7 wickets. However, their skipper feels that if they had posted 130 on the board, then it would have been tough for Team India to chase.
For India, it was Arshdeep Singh who made the ball talk as the left-arm pacer picked up four wickets, giving away just nine runs in his four-over quota. Team India became the third team after Australia and South Africa to qualify for the Super 8s.
The stand-in skipper was very pleased with the way their bowlers bowled. At one stage, India was reduced to 10/2, chasing the target of 111. 
In his post-match presentation, Aaron Jones said, “10-15 runs short. If we got 130, then it would have been a tough total; that’s how it goes sometimes. The boys were very disciplined and really proud of the bowling unit.” 
Jones further mentioned that they need to regroup and rethink before their final game against Ireland.
“Feels good; this is what we wanted for USA cricket, enjoying it. We will recalibrate now, have a few meetings, and come back strong,” he added.
The stand-in skipper also feels that the pitches in New York were kind of more suited for fast bowling. Jones also provided an update on Patel’s fitness, saying that he will be available for their final clash against Ireland.
“The wicket was a bit tricky, more suited for seam bowling. That’s why there’s no spin. Mostly he (Monank Patel) should be fit for the last game; he just got a slight niggle,” he added.
The USA will face Ireland in their next clash and will look to secure their place in the Super 8.
