AB de Villiers is the Man of the Match

Kohli: I think everything went very well according to plans. It can be disheartening when you lose 9 of the 11 tosses. We there was a good feeling in the dressing room, our preparation was good. We don't want to push ourselves too much. We know we are a good batting unit. Today was just one of those days we just do what we know best. We played smart cricket. At the halfway mark, we just gave the guys 170 runs to defend, because that will help our net run-rate. I love the situation that we are in. Everyday is a new challenge.

McCullum: We were pretty happy to bowl first. We started well, but we had two guys, world-class players, who played two of the greatest innings in T20 history together. It's frustraing from our point of view, but at the same time it was incredible to watch as a fan. We tried different plans, but when someone plays like that, it's hard to stop. We have to get back to winning ways and make the play-offs. We also need to go to the play-offs with a lot of confidence. It was one team that turned up today and played great cricket. Hopefully we'll be better in the next game
