After winning the match, Virat Kohli said,
“The bowling and fielding was right up there. The pitch wasn’t great, to be honest, but they couldn’t have done much with all the rain around and the covers being on for three odd days. They did a good job to get the game started. The bowlers were on top throughout. He (Saini) is from Delhi. He is a raw talent, has the raw pace. He is one of them, who can bowl 150 clicks, and there are hardly any who bowl at that pace, and he is fit. He is someone who can build a name for himself, and he is hungry as well. Hopefully, he builds on from here. We would have liked to chase this four down maximum, that’s how this pitch was. It was tough to get your shots away with the old ball. We just want to contribute as a team in the second game.”
