Virat Kolhi: Absolutely. Came close twice, once in Galle and once in Adelaide. If we had played well at Galle, we would have won that game. Bit a commendable effort from the boys to put in a performance like that. As Rahul mentioned, he took on the gloves as Saha got injured and took a blinder that pulls the team up and it was the perfect start. Everyone apart from Stuart and a good outing in the second innings. He bowled very tight lines in the first innings. Today our four strike bowlers did the job. We already have couple of guys coming in, very exciting youngster in Karun Nair and Ojha has scored heavily. We need to sit and figure out who we will go in, in the final Test. We have been taking our half chances and that was the top sides do. That is somehting we have really worked hard on. I would like to congratulate Kumar on a wonderful career. I have said enough, but once more it has been a pleasure knowing you and playing against you. All the best in your furture endervours.
KL Rahul is the Man of the Match 
Angelo Mathews: Pretty disappointed with the way things went. We have promised him that we will play our best cricket in the next game. We had the best days, but unfortunately we didn't capitalize. After getting that lead, India batted well and put us under pressure. Pretty disappointed with the way we batted in the second innings. We would have batted better, but the Indians bowled really well. On the behalf of the team, I would like to thank Sangakkara. He is a true gentleman on and off the field - I salute him.
The Indians are a delighted, they won the match by 278 runs and level the series with 1-1. First Test win for India since July 21, 2014.
