Angelo Mathews: "The toss was crucial, we would have also bowled if we won the toss. The ball was seaming around, swinging around, the pitch was two-paced, our batsmen found it difficult. But credit should go the Indians."

MS Dhoni: "I think it is a well-written script, good toss to win, started well by the bowler, unfortunately for SL they lost Dilshan, we capitalised on that, then the bowlers bowled well, especially the spinners. I think it is important to have good bowlers in the side. The ball was still doing a bit., Bhuvnesh had already bowled 8 or 9, we wanted to keep some of the fast bowlers' overs for the death, so with Karthik around I think might as well give it a go. I thought even if it goes badly, I'll bowl one over. It went okay so I bowled another ... England are a very good side, and we have played a lot against them in the last couple of years."

Man of the Match is Ishant Sharma: "My strength is the bounce, I stick to my strength. I think up front U/mesh and Bhuvi bowled really well. I think the conditions were really favourable here, in the previous games the wickets were quite flat."
