...
And that concludes the presentation ceremony.
...
For his 83, Man of the Match is Rohit Sharma.
...
For his 18-ball 31 Hardik Pandya wins the cool player of the match.
...
Soumya Sarkar wins the catch of the match award for his brilliant catch to dismiss Rohit Sharma.
...
Time for the presentation.
...
Nehra also clarified that he wasn't upset with Hardik Pandya about the dropped catch but rather with himself that he didn't bowl a short enough bouncer and that is why he threw his cap.
...
Nehra, who was the pick of the Indian bowlers, finished with 3/23 in his four overs, said: "It was a 140-150 track but with the way Rohit and Hardik batted, they gave us some extra runs. There was something for the bowlers later also if one bowled in the right areas. Once I bowled my first over we were sure that we wouldn't let them score much. I don't mind the kind of pitch we got in Pune, honestly, and the one today was not an up and down pitch."
...
On a tricky wicket, it was Rohit Sharma's 83 that made the difference in the end. But it wasn't all him as he got some help from Shakib, who dropped him on 21 in the 11th over. Until then, his strike rate was below 100. After that drop it was 229.62 as he hit 62 off 27 balls and that made the difference between a total of around 150, which would have been par and a total of 166, which was always a match-winning total on a green pitch that provided plenty of assistance to the bowlers.
...
Three bowlers finished with identical figures of 23/1. Pandya, Ashwin and Bumrah all had same figures and Nehra finished with the same amount of runs but picked up 3 wickets. But it wasn't about the bowlers today rather it was about Rohit Sharma.
