Ravichandran Ashwin, Player of the Match, said, Feels like a million dollars.
It was important that we won the game tonight. That’s quite a good finish to the group stage games. The communication was pretty clear before the tournament. I had to work on a lot of stuff. The team management was clear with my position. I know what my role is.
I have to make the batsmen take risks. I have always believed I understand the game well. I am quite innovative, they have understood me well. I want to play my A game.
I am glad to make it to the playoffs and super pleased. I just brought out the David Warner inside me
