 While Rahul smashed a blitzy 50 off 19, Rohit scored a 16-ball 30 and they managed to add 70 runs in 5 overs as well. Later, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav took the team home.

After winning the game, Virat Kohli said: “A dominating performance, something that we were striving to do again. Now it will be interesting to see what happens on 7th (November). Don’t want to say a lot about today’s performance, we know what we can do. Also tells you how important the toss can be at this venue. We wanted to get them under 110-120 max, that was the mindset we went in with. The bowlers were excellent, and then KL and Rohit did really well. We spoke about the 8-10 over bracket before the start, didn’t want to really go too hard because if you lose wickets, then an extra 20 balls could cost.

He continued:

We thought that if they play naturally, runs will come quickly. If you look at our practice games, we have been actually batting like this only. Just a couple of aberrations happened, where we just couldn’t got those two successive good overs. Teams bowled well too, and created pressure on us. But we were just two overs of good batting. Jadeja bowled really well, also Shami was quite good. My family is here – that is enough (birthday) celebration for me.”

We were outclassed in every department – Kyle Coetzer

Kyle Coetzer said: “We were outclassed in every department. The only way we’re going to improve is by getting games like this. Boys are still going to take something out of this. Mark has been excellent for us all tournament. He has a great set of skills, he has learnt a lot from other spinners too. That’s another important reason for us to be in this tournament. He (Leask) is a fantastic striker of the cricket ball, lovely to watch.”

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who won the Player of the Match award, said: “I was enjoying bowling on this track today. The odd ball was turning, I was enjoying very much. The first one (Berrington’s wicket) was a special one, whenever you get a batsman out with a turning ball, that’s always special. We were looking to play good brand of cricket. Everybody knows that we had to win with a big margin for us to up our net run-rate, we were looking to play our best game and give our 100% on the field. Everybody’s happy, one more game to go, hopefully we play like this. If we play like this, nobody can beat us. In T20 format, we have to play like this, that is for sure.”
