Winning
Captain:
Rohit
Sharma:

It
was
a
hard
fought
win.
It
didn’t
come
easy
as
expected,
so
great
learning
for
the
guys.
They’ve
not
played
for
India
in
this
situation

to
understand
what
needs
to
be
done,
not
about
power-hitting
all
the
time.
As
a
captain
we
are
happy
that
those
guys
got
to
bat
in
this
situation.
Technically
a
good
game
for
us.
We
were
missing
a
few
players,
but
good
opportunity
for
some
other
guys.
the
way
we
pulled
it
back.
At
one
stage
it
looked
they’d
get
180
but
the
way
they
pulled
it
back.
They’ve
been
brilliant.
They’re
not
just
there
to
bowl
four
overs
and
get
out
of
the
way,
they
want
to
take
wickets.They
are
wicket
taking
options.
Surya
batted
brilliantly.
He
takes
his
chances.
He
is
a
very
important
player.
(On
Boult
dismissing
him)
We’ve
played
a
lot
of
cricket
together,
Trent
boult
knows
my
weakness
and
I
know
his
strength.
When
I
am
captaining
him
I
always
tell
him
to
bluff
and
that’s
what
he
did.
Happy
with
the
win,
first
win,
always
nice.



Losing
Captain:
Tim
Southee:

You
always
want
to
come
out
on
the
right
side
of
close
ones.
I
think
it
was
a
good
score.
Mark
Chapman

the
way
he
played
was
very
pleasing,
but
a
game
of
fine
margins.
The
way
we
started
with
the
ball
wasn’t
what
we
wanted,
did
well
to
claw
it
back
in
the
middle,
took
it
deep
and
to
the
last
over
was
a
positive.
We
set
higher
expectations
so
a
bit
off
with
the
field.
We’ve
been
very
good
at
it
in
the
last
few
matches.
Tough
that
we’d
used
up
all
our
resources,
but
Daryl
does
his
scouting
and
always
wants
to
bowl.
We
probably
didn’t
leave
him
enough
runs.



Suryakumar
Yadav:

I’ve
been
doing
nothing
different,
I
try
to
bat
the
same
way
in
the
nets
and
replicate
the
same
in
the
game.
I
put
a
lot
of
pressure
on
myself
in
the
nets,
if
I
get
out
I
go
into
the
dressing
room
and
think
what
better
I
could
have
done.
The
ball
was
coming
on
nicely
to
the
bat,
came
on
a
bit
slow
later,
but
happy
to
be
on
the
winning
side.
(On
Boult’s
dropped
catch)
It’s
my
wife’s
birthday,
a
perfect
gift
from
him!
I
would
have
loved
to
finish
the
game,
but
that’s
how
you
learn
and
move
on.



R
Ashwin:

The
slower
you
bowled
there
was
purchase
from
the
pitch.
It’s
kind
of
tricky
in
a
T20
game.
We
thought
it
was
par,
par-minus,
170-175
was
par,
at
the
halfway
mark
we
thought
we
would
cruise
home.
Identifying
the
right
pace
took
a
bit
of
time
for
me.
(On
Dravid)
It’ll
be
too
early
for
me
to
comment.
We
need
to
give
him
some
breathing
space.
He’s
done
the
hard
yards
in
the
under-19
and
A
sides.
He
leaves
nothing
to
chance

that’s
what
you
expect
from
Dravid.
It’s
about
preparation,
leaving
nothing
to
chance
and
bring
back
the
joy.
