AB de Villiers is Man of the Match
Virrat Kohli: Unbelievable. I can't believe that I'm standing here as the winning captain. I think this should settle the debate about who is the best in the world. Come the big game, and he steps up. I just bow down to him. Credit to Abdulla as well for hanging out there with AB. It did play a bit slow in the first half of the first innings, but then it played out nicely. I wasn't very unhappy with the light showers which freshened the wicket. This one is for the people of Bangalore. We can't wait to grab it
Suresh Raina: I think we bowled very well. AB batted well. We bowled well upfront. On this ground you never know what can happen later on. Still we have one more game to go in Delhi, hopefully we can make the final. When you are 9/3, it was very good batting from Smithy and ED (Dwivedi). I think 160 was defendable and DK (Kulkarni) bowled in the right areas. But AB is a world class batsman. When you have got Chris, Kohli, Rahul, everybody you have dismissed, I guess the luck didn't go our way. Still, boys did a good job. Hopefully we'll win in Delhi and come back here.
