- 2 of 21MS Dhoni lauds Rohit Sharma’s effort:"Overall a very good peformance, more so with the new ball. We didn't let them get off to a quick start. It is new bowling attack, they will learn a lot with experience. 100 in 10 overs, it's bound to happen with the new rules. We all know Rohit is a gifted cricketer and it was a very good performance from him. He is a natural puller of the ball and once he got to his fifty, he converted it to a big one. The conditions have not been typical subcontinental conditions, except Kochi, so the series win has been a good achievement," he said during the post-match presentation.
