11.18 pm: Player of the series Virat Kohli – “It was a complete game for us, we totally outplayed the opposition. A great game for us. We won two of the three games I scored in, so happy with the returns. I enjoyed all the partnerships today, it was a clinical performance by us. I am going to open in the IPL as well. T20 cricket is about having your two best players at the top. So I’m looking forward to opening with Rohit in T20s, because if one of us get going we’re going to be set.”

11.14 pm: Player of the match Bhuvneshwar Kumar – “It’s good to be back. I am feeling quite good, body-wise. Always good to take some wickets with the new ball. Got confidence playing a few domestic games.”

11.02 pm: What was the game plan? Hardik: We just wanted to make sure that the batsmen don’t get what they are waiting for. Slower balls, other variations... that’s what is done in T20s.
