That does it for Monday night. See you tomorrow. Hats off to the Huss

Hussey is the Man of the Match. Hussey: "Good batting condtions, best batting pitch we have had here this season. Needed a bit of luck along the way. Suresh was in the zone today, was finding the boundary at will."

Dhoni: "When opposition scores 185, 90% it will go into the last over. It got close but Bravo did well. Hussey gave the start, he and Raina gave us the platform. Always important to win at home as you know the conditions better. Was a good wicket, groundsmen are trying their best and we are trying to adapt."

Rahul Dravid: "Very pleased [with 185]. One of the finest T20 innings from Watto, in humid conditions. Early on, we missed it a bit [with the ball]. You felt they always had the team. Every time we got a wicket, someone came in and got a six."

Dwayne Bravo praises Hussey's work ethic, saying he still keeps going despite being done with international cricket

Shane Watson: "Few things went my way with the bat but you'd take that back for a win. We knew that was a lot of runs on that wicket but we knew they have a long batting order and we would have to bowl well, but we could not execute well. [My bowling] has been something I have been missing last three months, could not do it today. Hopefully it will come out better."
