Hardik Pandya, Man of the Match: It was a good day for me. It feels pretty good. I don’t think anything has changed. I’m the same Hardik. I knew what he was going to bowl. I targetted one over and eventually it helped.

Virat Kohli, India captain: This is a very pleasing win. MS and Hardik and Kedar first batted well. Today was example, Sri Lanka was an example of how good they are (spinners). The more they can come through such situations, they will add more balance to the team, Its a matter of time giving players the confidence. He believes in himself. Hardik was the game-changer.

Steve Smith: MS (Dhoni) and Hardik (Pandya) played really well. We couldn’t capitualize with the start. The new ball was stopping a bit and some were skidding on. We lost too many wickets in the middle.
