Rohit Sharma (IND): To be honest, I thought we were 15 runs short. How the first half went, I thought we lost our way towards the end. I mean these things happen and we learn from it. It was a decent score and once again, the bowlers did it for us. We know how crucial it is for our top three to stay as long as possible. It has happened throughout the series. Last match, it was pleasing to see our middle order perform. Hopefully we can move forward as a group in the coming games. We discussed certain plans and it worked. We tried to keep the ball on the stumps. Their batsmen like width. So it made them go after the bowling after 6 overs. It was a complete bowling unit performance. Throughout the series, we showed a lot of intensity, which helped us get those crucial wins. We never backed down from whatever situation we were thrown in.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the Man of the series
Over 19.6 Bhuvneshwar Kumar slips in a full toss to Christiaan Jonker, out Caught by Rohit Sharma!! Jonker comes on to the front foot and driven straight to the hands of Rohit Sharma at extra cover and who takes it simple.
Suresh Raina is the Man of the Match
Duminy (SA): They bowled pretty well in the batting PP. We couldn't get the boundaries and the singles. We were 30 runs behind after that PP but in the end we were behind by only 7 runs. Their slower and knuckle balls worked. Jonker, in his first game, to get us that close was a great effort. In this format, guys get opportunity and they try and stake a claim. Great opportunity for guys to step up. We have learnt our lessons. Full credit to India. Outstanding white-ball tour. They gained a lot of confidence out of that win in the third Test.
