Ravindra Jadeja (Player of the Match): " I was looking just to build a partnership with Rohit as we were in a bad position, 33/3. I just tried to watch the ball and play according to it. I know this wicket, once we bat first the ball comes on the bat nicely and in the second innings it gets difficult.

Once Rohit won the toss, I was like this is what all wanted to bat first. I think on this wicket, we don't get easy wickets, we need to work hard, as this surface is good for batting. We need to keep bowling in good areas. We need to earn the wickets on this surface."
Player of the Match: Ravindra Jadeja
Rohit Sharma (India Captain): "See, when you are playing Test cricket, it is not played over two or three days. We know the importance of playing over the course of five days. They played well. But we have got class on our squad. The message was to stay calm. Not drift from what we want as a team. I'm proud of my team because they sticked to the plans.

I mean specially for this game, he has got a good experience of playing in this format. He has scored a good amount of runs and we wanted that right and left hand batting. We all know Sarfaraz. He did what he does the best. We don't have any long term plan with the batting order. We go with whatever we feel on the day and go with the flow.

Honestly, a lot of turning points. Once we won the toss, that was a good toss to win because we know how important it is to put runs on the board. Also, to get that lead. The way we bowled after the onslaught from the English batters was brilliant. We didn't have our most experienced bowler but the others did a fine job. The job was half done. We knew we had to bat well and get a big lead. The youngsters did a fine job and Jadeja bowled brilliantly today.

I have spoken a lot about Yashasvi in Vizag as well. Even outside the dressing room, there have been a lot of talks about him. I won't talk about him. He is young and I'll hope that he keeps doing and delivering for the side."

Ben Stokes (England Captain): " Look I think, Ben Duckett played an unbelievable innings, we thought to set that tone that tone throughout the match. It was about identifying the opportunities and to score runs and push up the score as much as possible. With how the wicket was behaving we wanted to push the score as much as we could. Sometimes game plans don't work around.

 Everyone has a perception and opinion about us, the only thing that matters is what the people in the dressing room think about us. Things don't always go our way. We will look to leave this game behind and look to win the final two games of the series."
CREX (Player of the Day - Ravindra Jadeja): The local boy wreaked havoc on England's batting order, claiming an impressive 5 wickets during his spell of 12.4 overs. Jadeja's outstanding performance played a pivotal role in India's comprehensive victory.

Yashasvi Jaiswal: “I’m just trying to make it big whenever I’m set. Because in Test cricket, you never know. I try to bat as long as I can whenever I’m set.

I think it was pretty difficult for me. Initially, I was not getting runs. I had to play the bowler. Then suddenly when I got set, I thought I can play my strokes. I started playing those strokes and started getting those runs. I didn’t want to go out but it was too much. I didn’t know how it was going to be on the next day. A lot of thoughts came to my mind. But I felt really good and I made sure that I’ll take the game forward.

At that moment, I felt there was something for the bowlers. I was feeling that I had to stay and give a good start to the team. I tried to play as many balls as possible.

I feel whenever I’m set, I have to score big. My seniors have always said to make it big whenever I’m set. The way Jaddu bhai and Rohit bhai played in the first innings, it has inspired me. The dedication and the motivation they had was incredible. They played session to session and I decided to do that and give my 100%.”
