Ravichandran Ashwin: "There is lesser pressure now. I had a bit of nerves going in for the toss. Feeling a bit relieved now. I had some elaborate plans going. KL Rahul and the other guys helped me execute them. I wanted a lot of guys to have a good hit and we batted well today.
Gautam Gambhir: I thought that we got a decent total on the board but in the first 6 overs (of the chase), they put it beyond us. Credit to our bowlers, they fought back well to drag it into the 19th over. (Whether DD were short of runs) No, I thought that 160-165 was a good total because the old ball wasn't easy to get away. Hence, the first 6 overs were key. (On DD's fine support staff) Yes, we have a good start with Ricky and many others in the backroom staff. Hopefully we can get things right.
