“Disappointed not to get the 100, but it was a good effort by the team. We got a good score in the end.

“There were nerves in the end and did not expect it to turn that way. We kept our cool and one small change in the end where we pushed the fine leg back and that really helped us.

“The discussion was to use the bigger side as much as we can and we want to keep on learning and make ourselves better for the rest of the competition,” said Dhawan in a post-match presentation.
