Ishan Kishan (Player of the Match)
Virat Kohli  (IND): We ticked all the boxes we wanted to and to give away only 34 in the last five overs is very special effort. Special mention to Washi and everyone chipped in and all in all very happy with the bowling and batting as well. It did come onto the bat a bit better in the second innings and the slower balls stopped gripped and special mention to Ishan the way he batted. I tried to do what I can but he kept following his instincts and it was a quality innings on debut. When you play in the IPL with such dominance like he has and he is a fearless character and he knew that he was hitting the ball well and he is very calculated and not restless. Today that counterattacking innings from him and that partnership was needed. I had to shift the focus back to the basics of the game and I always take pride in doing the job for the team. Just kept my eyes on the ball and my wife is here and she keeps telling me a lot of things and also I had a chat with ABD before the start of the game and he just told me to watch the ball. He has worked really hard on his fitness and next few months he is gonna be a vital part of this team moving forward in all three formats. He plays for the team all the time and those kind of players are priceless. They were always in the game and you gotta be really precise in this format which is what we did today
Eoin Morgan (ENG): We were probably in and around par, but India bowled well and there's slightly less pace today on the pitch. They put us on the back foot from the start and pace off the ball is always challenging for players. I am glad we played on this wicket, but a little disappointed with the way we played. There's always an advantage in chasing statistically and the disappointing area is we couldn't counter the opposition attack in the first ten overs. The two guys at the top always try and be aggressive as they can and stick with the process. We were always gonna miss him and hopefully, he will be fit before the next game. We will be practicing and the next game is on red soil and there might be more turn.
