India captain MS Dhoni

"It has been good, we can't shy away from the fact that we are playing some good cricket. But at the same time a month back we were struggling. A lot of credit needs to go to the boys and the support staff. The good thing is not many players form our side are in the top run-scorers list, but the batting has performed.

"That was an area we wanted to improve [bowling teams out] Even in New Zealand and South Africa, we were struggling with that, but now we are doing much better. It's difficult to pin point how it changed. Just like a batsman out of form gets back into form, cricket has a lot of abstracts, but we need to do a lot of the small things right.

"Put in the intensity and hope it all turns out. [The catch] Fluke happens. It was an important catch, a decent partnership was going and I just dived. I thought it was a bit away from me, I dived and the ball came and sat in my hands. [300-plus scores].

"A lot of it is because of the fifth fielder being inside and the T20 influence and with teams keeping wickets in hand, it helps. If the wicket is dry, some reverse swing happens. But if it's a flat wicket, 300 is something most teams will score"


Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza

Could have been, we'd like to bat first as well, But can't control that. At that time, Rubel and Shakib were bowling well, but we couldn't get through. 300 is diffuclt to chase, but 280 could have been better. I think, except today, they should be happy. Most of our players are just starting their careers and they should be very happy with their efforts and the fans should be happy as well.

I hope, the way we are performing at the moment, we don't have the experience yet, but once we go back home, we know how to play and hopefully this year is exciting for us. Thanks to all the supporters for coming to all the games.


Rohit Sharma after winning the man of the match.

"I think it will be right up there, it was an important situation where the team needed it the most. I was determined, I wanted to bat as long as possible and put the team into a good situation and the bowlers did a fantastic job.

"Batting at the top of the order, its important to get big hundreds and I wand to make the most of it when I go out to bat and I'm happy with the way it turned out. We played as a team. Bowlers are taking wicket,s batsmen are scoring runs, we just need to take this momentum into the semis.

"We've talked a lot about momentum and how big a part it plays in big tournaments. We have two more games to go. I didn't hear that [said pointing to the crowd as they roar] We just need to do what we're doing, we're creating big partnerships with the bat and the bowlers are working in tandem as well."


The latest win is also MS Dhoni's 100th win as a captain.


Rohit Sharma was named man of the match for his 137 off 126 balls.
