Gambhir: Must-win game for us. Credit to the entire group. Yusuf's form is important and he's not flirting with it. His role has changed, but now we give him more overs. He's mature and takes his time. When we started, 160 looked good and we looked set for 180-185. But we were happy with 170 too, given the pitch here. The point is to stay in the present and be up for it. We have to take a lot of confidence from this match which was almost a playoff. When you lose a player like Russell, it's difficult to get the combination right but guys have put their hand up and performed well today.
