Kohli: Couldn't have asked for anything better. The bowlers have responded well whenever we have been under pressure. Everytime the Kiwis have had a partnership, someone has put their hand up. In the past this team had failed to show character. This team is up and ready for it. We are pretty intense and the results show. We surely have to work hard against better oppositions. It was pretty simple. Yesterday itself the bowlers deserved to be in this position, so the plan for the batsmen was to go out there and express themselves. It was really good to see that. This has been a proper team series win. There has not been a contributor standing out as such, leaving Ash aside. He is not to be mentioned in the XI. As a team we have contributed at different times. Jadeja with the bat in the first game, Saha with the bat in the second and Rohit with those crucial knocks. It has been a complete performance. We don't have to remind him (Ashwin). We keep check number five, number six (referring to Man of the Series awards). He has been a champion. It is a topic of discussion. Credit to him and hope he keeps going well.
Williamson: I think that's fair. We knew it was going to be tough coming into the series. We certainly wanted to show better cricket than we did. Credit to India they were better in all three departments. In this match there are many areas we didn't to do too well, like I said India outplayed us. It was important to go big in the first innings, but unfortunately we didn't. Credit to India, they are number one in the world and it is well deserved. The beauty of it is, we have such young side and being exposed in these conditions to the best attack in the world. It was a shame we couldn't learn from game to game. As a young group coming here, although it is unfortunate we couldn't perform as we would have liked to, but credit to India.
Ravichandran Ashwin: First things first, I would like to thank the Indore crowd for coming out and supporting us. It was a wicket where you had to work hard to pick wickets. We had to change up the pace and that is because I had to get them to drive as the ball was carrying to short leg or leg slip. Special mention I have to give to Bhuvi, Shami and Umesh. They contributed whenever we were not able to get the wickets. Virat told me that he is rotating the bowlers. I have been bowling really well and my confident is sky high.
