Dhoni: Games like these, you need to be calm right through the end. we bowled well, there were a few overs where we gave away a lot of runs but Kulasekara bowled well. The last ball, had it gone straight to hand, it would have been a Super Over and that is never an easy thing.
Dravid: You got to give credit to the bowlers, they restricted us to the score, we fell 20-25 runs short. Proud of the way the boys bowled, lot of young boys and we have done well. The way Stuart Binny bowled to the likes of Dhoni and Bravo was excellent.
Faff du Plessis is the man of the match for the second time in a row. He says, "We have played here a couple of days and got 150 plus, so we are used to the slow wicket. I am in a good space, good form, when you are in good form you need to cash in, trying to take it easy, not think too much"
That was an excellent finish in the end, after it looked throughout that the game was going to get over at least an over before the close! In the end, captain Dhoni calmly guided them through to a win, but not before they had survived some anxious moments. Presentation in a few minutes.
