Virat Kohli (IND): Good win for us. Very happy with the overall performance. Always feels nice to have convincing wins, pretty good day for us. The regulars have performed, but the biggest positive would be Hardik's inclusion and the way he shaped up in these three Test matches. The usual suspects are always there and thereabouts. We are a young side, we look forward to play Test cricket, we look forward to play every single Test match. We like to be prepared before hand and be proactive and not reactive. We have age on our side and maybe play five six years together for the country. Sometimes the side has momentum, sometimes they don't. It's all about keeping the belief going and not losing motivation because of a few results.
Shikhar Dhawan: Before this series I was in Hong Kong enjoying the holiday. But I got an opportunity because one of the openers was injured. I am enjoying my batting right now. I have to keep performing because we have tough competition for all the slots, so that is a great sign for Indian cricket.
Shikhar Dhawan is the Man of the Series
Dinesh Chandimal (SL): You can't control the toss, but this was a tough series. Credit to India for playing outstanding cricket throughout the series. Our batting and bowling was below par. They scored 600 in each innings, so that is why we decided to play five bowlers. We have to be patient and concentrate harder (when batting or bowling).
Hardik Pandya: I am glad that I got my first hundred here. I backed my instincts. I have bowling and Test cricket is not an easy place to come and take a fifer. This team is pretty amazing. Everyone backs me to do well.
