It is quite amazing to win the series 5-0 - Virat Kohli

PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Bhuvneshwar Kumar

PLAYER OF THE SERIES
Jasprit Bumrah

Virat Kohli: It is quite amazing to win the series 5-0. We always thought the limited overs were going to be much more challenging but credit to the guys. Jassi has been outstanding, spinners has been outstanding. Hardik chipping in. We have played some good cricket. The talk was about not having won more than 3 games in a row limited overs at a stretch. But now we have 5. In fact, 6. We won one in West Indies as well. Hopefully we can take this form and play well against Australia. Lovely, hospitable people here. They love you, they appreciate what you do. Very chilled out beautiful place. They are always smiling but never intrude in your privacy. We will definitely like to come here again.
Jasprit Bumrah: Nothing like that (on his Test chances getting a boost after this performance). It’s always a dream. Hopefully when I get my chance, I would want to do well. I got a good break before the series. I was fresh to come into the series. It has been a long journey with him (Malinga). I will continue to learn with him. I am not thinking about that (using Malinga’s skills to beat Sri Lanka). I am just trying to become a better bowler.

100th stumping for MS Dhoni in ODI cricket

Upul Tharanga: These are difficult times for us. India were brilliant throughout the tournament. Once we were looking at 260-70 but we lost some wickets. In our batting we are disappointed a lot. We could not get the partnerships going. Losing a few main players also was the reason. But as a player I think we were not up to the standards. Happens in cricket (talking about the ball that dismissed him).
Bhuvneshwar Kumar: I was not among wickets in the first few matches. But I was happy with the way I bowled today. We knew they were not strong against slower balls. I did not want to prove anything. Whenever I get the opportunity I wanted to do well for my team.
