During the post-match presentation ceremony, Rohit Sharma, who was named Man of the Match, said that even he was surprised by his striking power in the match. He said:

“I was also quite surprised actually. I didn’t expect to hit him like that, I’m glad he came out. For the last 8-9 months I have been playing like this.”

Rohit Sharma further discussed the performances of Harshal Patel and Jasprit Bumrah in the second T20I. He said:

“You really can’t plan too much in such a short game. The bowlers had something to play and we played well. The dew started to arrive later, so we saw some full releases from Harshal. Coming back after a couple of months, the back injury can be tricky. I’m not going to talk too much about how he bowled. He got us the crucial wicket. As a team, we are not going to analyze too much. I just want you to come and enjoy it.”

Rohit Sharma was also very impressed with the performances of Axar Patel and Dinesh Karthik in the match. He elaborated:

“Axar can bowl at any stage, it gives me the advantage of using the other bowlers in different situations as well, maybe use the pacers in the intermissions if he bowls on the power play. I’d like to see his batting too. I’m glad DK was able to finish well. It’s been a while since he’s had any time in the middle. There was this thought if we should include Rishabh but I thought Sams was going to throw in the cutters so I thought I’d let DK in and he’s playing that role anyway for us. The gardeners have been here since 1:30 pm to prepare the gardens.”
