KL Rahul further praised Cheteshwar Pujara, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and Shubman Gill for delivering brilliant batting performances in the match. He said:
“Getting runs was difficult for the first three days. The way their starters hit, we had to work hard. Our intensity was really high. We know that no victory goes high. We hit well in the first innings as well. It was a job well done by Shreyas and Puji, even Pant’s counter. Really happy for them (Gill and Pujara), they jumped at the chance.”
KL Rahul was also pleased with the performance of the Indian bowlers in the match. While praising the bowlers, alternate captain KL Rahul said:
“Very pleased with the way we bowled. The pitch wasn’t really helping the bowlers, but they found something. Umesh cast a couple of great spells and got us back in the game. We have built this attack over the years. They are showing the quality they have. I’m not going to worry about what we could have done better.”
