"I always smile whether we are winning or losing, it is good to be on the winning side,” he said ina post-match presentation.
He lauded offie Ashwin’s show in the match. “Ashwin had to bowl out of his comfort zone in the Powerplays and the slog overs. He did well and batted well. We have confidence in Jadeja to bat at No 7 and bowl well.”
Meanwhile, Man of the Match Ashwin, who took three wickets and contributed with the bat with an unbeaten 30, said he was desperate for a win on Wednesday.
"It was gripping a little bit, I got a few wickets and at the end, finished it off with the bat. One victory on the board is very important, I was desperate to get a win today. I told Jaddu that we have to bat 60 balls here and that is what we did,” he said.
