Presentation
Rohit Sharma is the MoM He says, "Always nice getting hundreds in consecutive matches. it's not the end of the world for me, I have a long way to go. Boys played really well, right from the start. This wicket was really nice to bat on, still a bit on the slower side. We knew if we got one big partnership, we would get the target."

Suresh Raina "We bowled really well, and Rohit Sharma is the man, he batted really well. I forgot, I thought I had told the umpire about the Powerplay, but he said I hadn't. Anyway we bowled really well, and Rohit and Virat batted really well too."

Tillakaratne Dilshan "We had to bowl in the right areas, we needed to take half chances because we had only 240, but it went wrong with the bat, couple of run-outs and then untimely wickets. I tried to bring the fielders up to prevent easy singles, but there was nothing in the wicket."

High fives in the Indian dressing room, this has been a remarkable comeback after having been beaten by Zimbabwe. The tri-series is wide open now. And Sharma and Kohli played beautifully after the bowling unit was very disciplined. Do stay back for the presentation
