'We have a young bowling attack and we will learn': Hardik Pandya

"Wicket was good, 277 no matter how bad or good you bowl, if the opposition has to score that much, they have batted well. They (the bowlers) were good, it was tough out there, almost 500 runs were scored and the wicket was helping the batters, we could have done a few things here and there." All-rounder said.

"But having said that, we have a young bowling attack and we will learn. If the ball goes this many times into the crowd, you will need time to get the overs done." he added.
