Dhoni: It's fun (playing in front of a big crowd). Thanks for all the support. That was a fantastic catch. That was a crucial point of the game. They got off to a good start and it was important for us to take wickets. The spinners did the job and Hardik's first over was very crucial. We have been looking for someone who can give us good overs in the death and Bumrah has done well so far. He can consistently bowl yorkers. The good thing is that the more he plays, the better he will get.
Shane Watson: We got a really good start, but unfortunately we lost wickets in the middle and made it hard for ourselves. Aaron hurt his right hamstring. He's being assessed right now, hopefully it is not too serious. He has been hitting the ball really well. Sunday is very important for us. We are testing out a few players at the moment. The conditions are very different out there for the World T20 in India.
Virat Kohli: "I love coming to Australia and bat on these wickets. We get a lot of Indian support as well. Sealing the series here at the MCG feels special. I am very happy that I contributed to the team at an important time. Rohit has been timing the ball well. Shikhar took a bit of time in the ODI series, but he has been batting well as well. I rely on timing to hit sixes than going really hard at it.
