Lokesh Rahul (IND): We've been here for a while. The one-day series, it didn't go as we wanted. Hard-fought Test match and we had to really work hard for this win. Really happy we did that. It did flatten out, didn't worry us. Looked like the batters were batting comfortably. Getting runs was hard for the first three days. The way their openers batted, we had to work hard. Our intensity was really high. We know no victory comes high. We batted well in the first innings as well. It was a job well done by Shreyas and Puji, even Pant's counter-attack. Really happy for them (Gill and Pujara), they utilized the opportunity. Very pleased with the way we bowled. The pitch wasn't really assisting the bowlers, but they found something. Umesh bowled a couple of great spells and brought us back into the game. We've built this attack over the years. They are showing what quality they have. I am not going to worry about what we could have done better.
Kuldeep Yadav is the Player of the Match
Shakib Al Hasan (BAN): It was a really good wicket to bat on but we didn't bat well (in the first innings). Playing after 5-6 months, it wasn't ideal but there should be no excuses. A lot of credit to India the way they bowled. They bowled in partnerships and created pressure. (On Zakir Hasan) He has been scoring a lot of runs in domestic runs, that's why we picked him. Hopefully, he scores a lot more centuries for Bangladesh. We have to play good cricket for all five days. We have to play four good innings to be able to get a result, especially against India.
