IND 310/5 (43.0 Ovs)
WI 205/6 (43.0 Ovs)
Rahane, Man of the Match: Really happy with the way I played today. Didn’t get opportunity in the Champions Trophy, but really happy that I got a chance here. It’s lovely to open with Shikhar. We understand each other well, we have played together in England as well. Me and Shikhar decided to play normal cricket till the 9th over and then take it from thereon.
Kohli: It was a complete performance. We have been playing some good cricket leading up to this game. Those two guys set it up nicely, that made our job easy. Really happy for Kuldeep, his first outing with the ball and he got 3 wickets. The bench strength is something that’s always been there right up for us. Jinks showed his mental strength and the character he possesses, and yeah that’s a testimony to our bench strength. Not really worried about the century, that’s the kind of mindset I have always played with. You gotta score few extra runs for the team. I think this is a good start, we have a few days off before we play at Antigua.
Holder: It’s very hard with momentum going India’s way towards the end. Dhawan and Rahane played very well at the top. Gathered some momentum and it was tough to restrict them. It’s not all lost, but we need to come back strong and reassess our plans. We bowled a few full tosses and probably struggled a little with the wet ball. He [Hope] has got good intent and was well supported by Evin, but unfortunately couldn’t get going.
