Dhoni (IND): We need to execute our plans, the margin of errors is very small. The bowlers have been very disciplined, the batting has been good and the fielding, we dropped one catch today, but that's going pretty well. We were not getting wickets in the middle overs, that was one worrying area for us, but now the spinners are pushing the batsmne towards making errors. I think they are forcing mistakes, it's just one match, we need to continue with this.
Tauqir (UAE): 'Yeah, it was not a par score on this wicket. I think we were outplayed by the Indian bowlers, it wasn't a par score. Ashwin bowled brillinatly, we couldn't cope up with his bowling, we bowled really well. That's our batting order, we know he can score runs down the order. The top-order needs to score more runs. We need to stick to the basics, play out 50 overs and get some runs. But India outplayed us and I wish them well.
Ashwin: I bowl at such phases of the game where I look to stop runs from being scored, but today I came on early to bowl. I am an attacking bowler, I love to take wickets. I am an unselfush bowler, I would love to take more wickets. My wrists position was much better, the sem position around the wrists was much better and the breeze helped me as well. It was good to have a few wins under the belt, it was a good show in the end and I will look forward to more.
