Mitchell Marsh, Player of the Match

Mitchell Marsh, Player of the Match: I have learnt the trade over the years. My rhythm has been good of late. I have been bowling a little fuller than other guys. I have a definite role in the team. My conversations are a little different compared to someone like a Cam Green. Both the decks have helped the seamers. There was movement in the air in Mumbai as well. My role is to attack the stumps and bring every form of dismissal into play.

Steve Smith, Australia Captain

Steve Smith, Australia Captain: Was a quick one. Only 37 overs you don't see usually. Starc with the new ball put them under pressure. I didn't know how the wicket was going to play. There was no total in mind. We were just trying to execute our plans. We were on the right side. Just that kind of a day when the nicks went to hand. The way Head and Marsh played at the start. They just kept going and we are able to bounce back after the last game. Nice I held on to it (on his one handed diving catch). Fortunate I was able to hang on to it. Hardik is a wonderful player we know.

Rohit Sharma, India Captain

Rohit Sharma, India Captain: If you lose a game, it is just disappointing, We didn't apply ourselves with the bat. Didn't put enough runs on the board. It wasn't a 117 wicket. We didn't apply ourself. We never allowed us to get the runs we wanted. Once we lost Shubman in the first over, myself and Virat got 30-35 runs. But then I lost my wicket and we lost a couple of wickets post that. Starc is a quality bowler. He has been doing it for Australia with the new ball. He kept bowling to his strength. Swung the new ball and took the odd ball away. Kept the batters guessing. Marsh has to be one of the top players going around when it comes to power hitting. He backs himself to do that every now and then. Definitely in top 3 and 4 when it comes to power hitting.
