Varun Chakravarthy who was also the Player of the Match, said in a post-match presentation: “I try to assess the pitch first. It was flat only. Would like to give credit to the bowlers who bowled in the powerplay with discipline. There wasn’t much in the pitch. Wasn’t much spin on offer so I had to keep it on the stumps. I thought it was out (the hattrick ball) but just saw the replay that there was an inside edge.

“Playing for India has made me feel better, I have a sense of acceptance from people around me because I started at 26,” he added.
