What they said:

 

Virat Kohli: I think it was a very clinical performance. Early on there was quite a bit of moisture on the wicket. It was really a good toss for them to win and they bowled really well upfront. Ajinkya batted well and Yuvi's 40-odd (39) were really important runs. MS at the end along with Kedar finished it really well. We thought 250 was a very competitive total. The bowlers bowled really well despite the wicket being better in the second innings. When we needed the wickets, the two spinners stepped up. When we needed the runs, MS again finished the innings along with Kedar. Rahane at the top of the order and Yuvi as well. Individuals will hardly win you games. It is important to raise your hands and perform. We have quite a few players who have not got a game. It is important to have a look at them and figure out where they stand in pressure situations.

 

Jason Holder: I thought the bowlers did a hell of a job. We put in a good effort in the first 10 and controlled them in the middle overs. One criticism was at the back end of the innings, in the last overs. I thought Kesrick did a reasonable job. He didn't start off the way he wanted to. Kyle Hope was outstanding on the field despite a dropped catch. We have to convert. We have to obviously adjust our batting. We need to bat better. On the field we were pretty good though.
