Ajinkya Rahane: Disappointing to lose this game. We batted incredibly well. Jos upfront was magnificent. The wicket was pretty good. We were trying to bowl hard lengths. It is a learning phase for our bowlers. We are still in the tournament. Upfront he is a very dangerous player and good for us that Jos is in form. We all believe that we can win all our games and make it to the play-offs. We have always taken one game at a time. It is all in the mind now and we will have to show character.

Shreyas Iyer :It was a very important victory for us. This wicket is very good and even 200 is very less, bowlers kept thir nerve and we came back strong. I dropped the catch but we won the match, we should look forward. Start that Shaw is giving is amazing and Pant role in the middle is pivotal. It is important for us to win all the match. Ponting is a positive guy and no one is thinking negative in the dressing room. It is difficult to ball with ground being small, it is really tough to control when batsmen starts hitting.
