    Man of the Series and Winning captain - VIRAT KOHLI

    Virat Kohli speaks after the toss: "It was a complete game for us. Totally outplayed the opposition. Even with so much dew coming in, like last game we've defended the total again. Today was a complete game. Despite Riahabh and Iyer not getting a chance we put on 225. Testimony to our batting depth. Today Rohit and me were both positive in our intent. We knew we could trust each other and one of us can play second fiddle if one takes off. Today it was classic Rohit Sharma. And then Surya coming in at three and taking the game even further away. Then Hardik finishing it. I am going to open in the IPL as well. Have batted in different positions in the past. But I feel we have a solid middle order now. Will definitely like to partner Rohit at the top. Other guys feel a lot more confident when one of us is still in and is set. Augurs well for the team. Also how Shreyas batted in the last game and the responsibility he showed in the first game. Ishan was brilliant. I was particularly pleased with Surya. Bhuvi coming back and bowling like that. Still have Jassi to come back. Don't have much in terms of negatives. Pant showed a lot of maturity through the series as well. Confidence level of Thakur after that series in Australia is sky high. WIth the ball his strength is his belief. Proper cricketer. Giving us runs with the bat as well. Just found out we might have some more (T20Is)."

  • Mar 20, 2021 11:15 PM IST

    Man of the Match

    "Always good to be back. Always good to contribute to the team's win. All good body wise. Was confident because I played the domestic matches. When you get a wicket with the inswingers, always gives you joy and confidence."

    Eoin Morgan speaks after match

    England captain, Eoin Morgan: Playing against a strong Indian team in their conditions was fantastic. Another fantastic game today. India outplayed us in big moments and deserved to win. We've played some good cricket through the series too. So lots of positives for us. We bat quite deep, and we tend to take advantage of that. Big moments in this series came when we weren't able to take advantage of that with our middle order. Always feel we have the talent in the changing room to give it a crack. Today wasn't our day. One of our huge plusses has been the powerplay bowling in most games. Have to commend Adil Rashid for taking on the new role. Gives us a new option. Not really (any concerns).

  • Mar 20, 2021 11:03 PM IST

    Hardik Pandya speaks after match

    "I have been working on fine-tuning my action, but at the end of the day you are thinking of what kind of delivery you want to bowl, It's slightly difficult but I am coping really well. When I bat I think as a batsman and when I bowl I think as a bowler. Looking at the World Cup, in this series we wanted to try out a few things and also to break the jinx of batting first and winning, feels really great. The wicket allowed us to use more variations and make sure that the batsmen are not getting anything in their zone."

  • Mar 20, 2021 11:00 PM IST

    Shardul Thakur speaks after the match

    Shardul Thakur: "It's great to be standing here, it was the most important game. We had to beat England. It feels great as wickets don't matter, winning the game matters more. I think the bench strength has become better. Whoever comes into the team, gels nicely. The seniors make the youngsters feel comfortable and so does the coaching staff. I think it's all about intent and hardwork. If you believe in your abilities, wickets will eventually fall down. And you need to take it on from there. I really don't take if someone is going to take my place. You see Siraj, Saini sitting out, but we share ideas with each other."

I knew how hard he (Archer) could come at me because I've played against him in the last two-three years in the IPL. I feel it's a big boost. I had always dreamt of winning games for India, and I was really happy with that. Let's see how it goes tonight. When we are chasing, we have a target in our mind. We have to keep it simple and go ahead in the same way. If you ask me, I am flexible batting at any position, but right now I'm enjoying batting at number 3."

    "Extremely great learning curve. Playing in a must-win game is something everyone wants to do and as a professional sportsman you want to play on these huge occasions and that's exactly what today is. There is an element of getting the team off to a good start and then there's also the other way that I should have gotten to 80, 90, 100 to kind of stamp your authority on the games, especially chasing scores over 180. I think if one of our batters had got a 80, it would have been a comfortable chase. The pitches have changed a llittle bit over the course of few games, I don't think changed a huge amount but as a batsman you need to assess ball-by-ball. They (India) are a very talented side with a lot of fire-power and to win a series here would be amazing."

    5th T20 Live - India vs England: Pitch report

    Deep Dasgupta and Ajit Agarkar: "This pitch was used for the second T20I. Looks really good and this might start a little slow and the toss could play an important role. The square boundaries are really big here. Fifty percent of the runs scored against the fast bowlers on this ground seems to be behind the stumps and this might actually help bowlers who can vary their pace with shorter lengths proving to be a relatively better option."
