At the post-match presentation ceremony, Dhoni said, “At 30 for 4, you want to put up a respectable score.” “Rutu and Bravo, in my opinion, gave us more than we expected. We were aiming for 140, so getting close to 160 was fantastic.”
“The wicket was two-paced, a little slow to begin with; additionally, you don’t get a chance to see what’s going on if you’re batting deeper down, so you want to go hard,” Dhoni continued.
“It was difficult to recover after Rayudu’s injury, but we batted smartly and finished strongly. It was logical for one-hitter to bat all the way through,” he signed off.
