Virat Kohli (IND): The boys applied themselves really well. Initially we had the momentum with the bat, but a couple of soft dismissals put pressure. Jadeja and Ashwin added crucial runs. I am still pretty early in my captaincy career, I look forward to advice from others. There have been cases where we've gone on one mode and the runs were leaked. All the sides that are doing well around the world have strong lower-middle orders. That's one area that we have improved and we need to keep working it because those 30-40 extra runs could prove crucial. It's been a very good Test match
Williamson (NZ): The boys were positive throughout the match, but credit to India. They outplayed us with bat and ball. Restricting India to 300 odd on a good batting surface was a good effort, but at the end of the day India were certainly the better team. The way Santner applied himself with both bat and ball was impressive and the way Luke Ronchi came back into the side was good to see. We look forward to another challenge in Kolkata.
Ravindra Jadeja: I am very happy. Before the series started I was thinking that I should play my role as a batsman as well. Duleep Trophy helped me a lot because I was getting wickets there as well. It gave me confidence as well. The ball wasn't turning from the stump line in the first innings, so we were trying to mix the pace. Obviously Ashwin is a very good bowler on slow turning wickets and I would like to congratulate him for 200 wickets. I enjoy bowling with him.
