Steve O'Keefe is Man of the Match
Steve Smith: It was gonna be hard work. A real grind. Really proud of how the boys have performed. Winning the toss was a bonus. Guys had good plans. 260 was a good total and bowlers backed us up. O'Keefe was outstanding throughout. We've got some good players of spin in our squad. We've got a well rounded squad. We thought if we had a bit of luck and played to our plans throughout, we'd be a reasonable show. I'm proud of this achievement. Mitchell Starc's batting in the first innings was important. To have a lead of 160 is massive on this wicket. Spinners were consistent and let the wicket do the natural variation bit. O'Keefe was disappointed with the way he started. Probably bowled a bit too full. But when he pulled his length back, he looked like taking a wicket every ball. He's worked really hard for it. I had a bit of luck, but to score a hundred on a second innings wicket like that took a lot of grit and determination. I was pleased that I was able to get the team to a good score.
Virat Kohli: I would like to think so (whether it's an anomaly). Really good run for us so far. We got outplayed in this game. No two ways about it. Australia were much better. We've got to take it on the chin. We never took them for granted. That's probably our worst batting display in the last two years. It was a case of not applying ourselves. Have to sit down and think what we did wrong. Batting was more disappointing than the bowling. We know that Pune is generally low and slow. They exploited it better than us and bowled at a good pace. There was a lot of pressure created on us. They deserved to win this game. I think we did pretty well. If you don't hold onto the chances, it's tough to get back in the game. As I said, I get no excuses, I take the loss on the chin. Big learning Test for me too. Sometimes you want to do stuff as a captain but there's only so much you can control. He's (Umesh) been working really hard for the past few months. He's got good pace and he's made good use of it in the past few months. He's got stronger. When it reverses, he's even more lethal.
Australia won the match by 333 runs and lead the series with 1-0
