Yuzvendra Chahal grabbed man of the match award for his brilliant three-wicket haul. Chahal in post match presentation said, “When you get middle-order batsmen out in the middle overs, the pressure is on them. Batsmen try a lot of sweeps and reverse sweeps these days so we have to be prepared for that too, as bowlers. In the last game too there was some help for spinners but I didn’t bowl that well.”
