Prasidh Krishna ( MOM):I have been striving hard to do this for a long time. So, I am very happy that we won. I was still looking to hit the good areas. When I came in to bat, I knew it was still seaming. I would have laughed it off (If someone would have told him he would finish with the figures he ended with today). I had seen the wicket in the last game. Experimenting wasn't possible as there was not much to defend. So, I stuck to good lines. Be as consistent as possible. The white-ball cricket is a power game.
Rohit Sharma (IND): Obviously winning the series is a good feeling. There were some challenges. The partnership between Rahul and Surya had a lot of maturity. We got to a respectable total in the end. We knew we could fight it out. The entire unit came out and bowled superbly. It is important for these guys to bat under pressure and that is how you will judge their character. Surya had to take his time and understand what the team wants from him. KL also batted superbly as he is consistently up and down in the order. I have been asked to try something different. We wanted to try it one game. Shikhar should be back for the next game. We don't mind losing a few games trying out a few things. Because it is important to look at the long-term goals.We will see what works out well for the team combination. I was a little surprised to see no due. I have never seen a spell like that in India for a long time now. Bowled with a lot of pace and kept it going. The others complimented him. When you have five bowlers and Deepak being sixth, you always need to keep rotating the bowlers.
Nic Pooran (WI): With the bat, we didn't build partnerships. We kept losing wickets at regular intervals. In the 39th over, we lost Fabian first and then Hosein. We need to continue to be aggressive. Pollard is a tough and big guy. Smith is a strong guy. He is a little inexperienced but sky is the limit for him. We did a good job with the ball and hopefully, we can do the same in the final game. And also do better with the bat.
