Kohli: None of the pitches have been turners. We've been playing very good cricket and gaining confidence. That's evident on the field. Getting them for 280 was a boost. Amazing contribution by the lower order. Puts the opposition on the back foot once you get a lead of 134. Professional from Parthiv to finish it off. I was surprised by the cheer after winning the toss to be honest. You still have to go out there and play good cricket. That motivated us actually to show that the toss doesn't matter for this team. First time in Indian history that Nos 7, 8, 9 have struck fifties. That's a brilliant stat. We always thought we needed more resistance from the lower order. Ashwin has obviously been a champion, the no. 1 all-rounder in world cricket. Jadeja is in the top 10 as well. But for Jayant to have that kind of maturity, he's been a revelation. They've been standing out every game. Umesh and Shami have rushed their batsmen. When you can bounce them out and intimidate them with the ball, it always pleases you as a captain. They can get you a couple of wickets in the middle when the situation is tough. Shami feels the injury has been a blessing in disguise. He's become more hard-working. He feels stronger. When the bowler is in that sort of a zone, you have to let him be. He's been a champion for us in the past as well. No worries as such. Really happy with the way the guys have stood up, especially Jadeja with the bat and the fast bowlers. Felt bad for Karun getting run out. But he's a good batsman and will be looking forward to the next match. We are in a good space and will look to enjoy the little break we have now.
Cook: It was a good toss to win. After getting bowled out for 280, you don't win too many games in this part of the world. We were behind the eight-ball. We had a little bit of a sniff with them at 200/6 but they managed a good total. Frustrating not to cross 300 of late. Need to improve on that if we have to win games of cricket here. He's [Stokes] a brilliant player. One of those all-rounders who balances the team. Allows you to play an extra bowler. Only going to get better and better. To play like that with his injured finger, shows courage and bravery [talking about Hameed]. Credit to India, they've outplayed us. Few days off now so we can go our separate ways a bit. Lots of English faces here, great to have that support. Hameed has to go home unfortunately and have a plate put in his hand. There's no doubt we'll see him again in an England shirt.
