If a guy doesn't get runs in a few games, the opposition still feels that he's gonna fire. I have not had a break for a long time. It's been hectic. I can relax and enjoy my break. One day, someone will take your place and that's how it goes. Shubman is a very exciting talent and I saw him bat in the nets, and I was like, wow, I was not even ten percent, when I was 19."

The consistency of their plans and the way that they forced some mistakes, I think we need to be better than that. The margins are large in white-ball cricket, but it requires a lot of improvements. I think everyone would like more help. The wicket was hard, and the partnership between Latham and Ross was excellent. I think we are OK with the ball in hand. We need early wickets to put pressure on the opposition."

Mohammed Shami (MoM): "It is really difficult to bowl against the wind. It comes with the wind and the other against the wind. It is hard, but not too hard. Bhuvi on the other end was also a great help. Bonding in areas where we want to bowl, the key is."
