Kohli on Toss

It was a good toss to win. The wicket didn't change much. We thought the wicket was really good to bat on. Our bowlers bowled really well and the fielders backed it up as well. I would say we had a complete performance in the field. We grabbed our opportunities and that helped us restrict such a strong batting line-up to 190. Always good to get him (AB) out early. He can really hurt you in the middle overs. It was great breakthrough for us. It was good to see the intensity from the boys

On Team's Performance

It was important for someone to bat till the end. Luckily I could do the job for the team, but Shikhar's intent was outstanding - getting the boundaries when required. I think if you a share a 100 partnership in a 190 chase, more or less you finish games convincingly. Even Yuvi wanted to finish the game along with me to take some confidence to the semis. This is probably our best game we have played so far in this tournament, really delighted with the way the boys turned up today.
