Ajinkya Rahane (Man of the Series): “I really wanted to make it count. I wanted to enjoy my batting. Even in the Champions Trophy I was batting very well in the nets, and I really wanted to make it count here. This wicket was slightly better than the last two venues. The ball was coming nicely on to the bat - this was the best wicket to bat on. As I mentioned, I just wanted to enjoy my batting.”
Virat Kohli: “First and foremost the aim was to win the series, have a complete team performance. Special mention to Rahane, who’s come back after a while and he was outstanding. Shikhar as well at the top. Kuldeep was outstanding. Really pleased with the team effort in general. Winning convincingly in a chase is always nice. For me it’s all about getting the team across the line. It’s not about stats - it’s about looking at the scoreboard, looking at the bowlers, which ones to target, which ones to give respect to.”
Jason Holder: “We were going well at the start, Kyle Hope was going really well. He got out at an unfortunate time, and we never got back after that. The guys have to take control of their own actions - the faster we learn on our feet, the better it will be. I sympathise with the batsmen, but they need to learn quickly, and use the off-season well.”
