KohliI (ND): Turned out to be that way. Because of our clinical performance, we were able to finish the game in a few hours. Wanted to bowl first anyway. Still had to execute our plans. Last both games have been clinical, very professional with ball and bat. Change-room atmosphere is very important, and when you play like that, the energy is always good. Everyone wants to be part of it. Two areas I can think of: third seamer - Khaleel has been outstanding. Rayudu has also performed. God forbid anything happens to Bhuvi or Bumrah, good to have Khaleel who can come in and take wickets. Those two areas were important. To contribute as a captain is an added bonus. Won't happen every time. Awards are by-products of what you do on the field.
Rohit Sharma is the Man of the Series
Ravindra Jadeja is the Man of the Match
Holder (WI): Not the finish we were looking for. Lacked consistency in last couple of games. Didn't bat well. Credit to the guys, admirable performance against India in India. Thought it would've been a good pitch. Their bowlers put the ball in the right areas. Lot of our dismissals were poor shots, wasn't about the pitch. Needed to show more application. Happy with the youngsters. Hetmyer, Hope were bright spots. Even Oshane Thomas here, he showed he's got something
