AB de Villiers: I thought it was an amazing game of cricket. Close games like these bring the fans to the game. Credit to India as well for playing well. There were a lot of moments when the momentum changed. The youngster is proving to be a handful and he has a great future. The momentum can change in a matter of seconds.
AB de Villiers is the Man of the Match
MS Dhoni: The outcome was not great for us, there were a few things went wrong for us, but I think we showed great character to fight on this wicket. We should have won the game. It was unfortunate that we lost Ashwin. He was bowling well. I was disappointed with the fast bowlers as there was plenty of reverse swing. Our batters made it look as if it was easy. I thought that partnership between Rohit and Rahane was very good. It was a bit difficult to bat out there as it doesn't come on nicely if the ball is banged short. If we had two set batsmen towards the end, it becomes easy to put pressure on the oppostion. It was a fantastic innings from Rohit. As I said, it was not easy and the fast bowlers were getting reverse swing and he made it look easy
