Shedding skipper, Jos Buttler mentioned
A improbable recreation, each side made some errors however performed some good cricket. We witnessed an unbelievable knock from Curran to almost get us over the road, however congratulations to India on successful. We’ve learnt quite a bit as a aspect and seen many guys get up and take the lead. The white-ball leg was extremely aggressive. These are the circumstances we’ll face within the close to future within the World Cup. It’s an important expertise for the younger guys to play a top-class aspect like India and they are going to be higher cricketers for it.
We didn’t bowl that nicely on the high, gave away straightforward boundaries, however dragged it again solely to be pegged again by Pant and Pandya, however we restricted them nicely sufficient. We didn’t have these massive partnerships to take us over the road. We’ve performed glorious cricket for numerous years, the expertise pool in white-ball cricket is rising and creates competitors within the squad and drives us to do higher.
We bat deep as a aspect, it’s one in all our strengths, however Sam Curran did nicely to take duty, and take a number of the strike and it took nice character to play the way in which he did, and he has these superb qualities in abundance.

It’s most disapponting for the man who drops the catch, however as a lot as you get disenchanted, catches get put down and generally they price you.
There’s no lack of intent, and our physique language was excellent. Ultimately we obtained over the road. I’m stunned Shardul wasn’t the person of the match, and Bhuvi wasn’t the person of the sequence. Loads of credit score to them for bowling so nicely in antagonistic circumstances. Prasidh and Krunal have been spectacular however demise overs batting was extraordinarily good, regardless of the early wickets, and if the highest three can get 100, then we are able to get 370s and 380s later. This win has been candy as a result of it’s in opposition to the highest workforce on this planet, and we’re trying ahead to the IPL. It’s been an incredible season, sequence, and this was an effective way to complete it off.

It was laborious to defend, however Natarajan bowled very well in the long run and reveals why he’s a extremely good bowler. I spotted that one aspect was shorter and Bhuvi is a improbable bowler so I performed him out. Unbelievable floor, nice pitch and an incredible batting line-up for India, so it has been an important studying curve. Trying ahead to the IPL in these circumstances in a number of weeks time.
Participant of the sequence, Jonny Bairstow, mentioned
‘ve been happy with my putting, however we’d wish to be on the successful aspect. As we speak, it simply wasn’t meant to be. I didn’t rating quite a bit within the Assessments, however it was pleasing to come back again and do nicely within the white-ball leg and I’ll be taking the boldness into the IPL. We all know Bhuvi’s abilities, and I believe getting outdoors off is the way in which to counter it. We had a dialog about it and we performed him within the Sunrisers’ camp, so we’ll have observe in opposition to him, don’t fear about that. Curran was particular wasn’t he? He’s performed out of his pores and skin, and we all know the standard and expertise he has, and the idea he needed to take us over the road, however congratulations to Nattu and the way he executed the yorkers on the demise. There’s not many individuals I might belief greater than Sam to clear the brief boundaries and he was completely improbable right now.
