At the post-match presentation, Rohit lauded his team but added that there are facets of the game they still need to improve.
“Biggest positive was different individuals stepping up and delivering. You feel good about it as a management. The margin of error in T20s is small. We took our chances, we were brave as well. Sometimes it doesn’t come off. There are areas to improve as well. Not easy coming back after a break against a tough team. They (Bumrah and Harshal) will take some time. Hopefully, they can get back into their groove in the next series," Rohit said.
Kohli elaborated on his role in the team, after leading India to victory.
“I have to utilise my experience and give the team what the team wants. I got off to a good start then I had to take down Zampa because he’s an important bowler through the middle," he told the broadcaster.
Suryakumar Yadav, who was adjudged the player of the match, said what his mindset was while batting in the middle.
“In that situation, I thought let me take my chance. I had two or three shots in mind but I tried to hit over mid-off only. My mindset is pretty clear. Loving it at No. 4. There will be a tough challenge but you got to express yourself and be a little smart as well," Suryakumar said.
