Words by Virat Kohli 

‘My preparation and intent always remain the same. I thought I was hitting the ball nicely. It was close to the template I play with, I understood we needed an extra 25-30 runs. I tried to understand the conditions in the second half. Tried to get a comfortable total for us on the board.’

Words by Dasun Shanaka

‘I think the start their openers gave, we didn’t use the new ball well, unlike their bowlers who got it to swing.’
