Player of the match, Shikhar Dhawan said, “It was a conscious effort from my side (to increase SR) and I started taking more risks. I'm not afraid of changes. I'm always open towards changes and I make sure I give it a good try in the nets and then in the games.”

Winning captain Rishabh Pant said he was enjoying his captaincy and that he likes “to keep the environment light so that people enjoy their cricket and make the most of their opportunities.”

Losing captain K L Rahul said, “ I think it would be fair [the ball changes every two overs, Doull's suggestions] and I'm not just saying that because I'm on the losing side. I did ask the umpires to change the ball a couple of times but that's not in the rules.”
