Kohli: It was a good series for me personally. I was hitting the ball pretty well. It was a revelation for me as well that I can play the same way in Tests as I do in ODIs, pushing the game forward. When I wasn't captain, it was very difficult for me to think of the situation. Rohit, we've always believed that he can change the game in the lower middle order. He's grabbed his chances really well. Everyone's hitting the ball really well. There are few areas for us to work at, but the batting and bowling has been on point. Feels like a disappointment. They played really well. The pitch got really tired by the end. In hindsight, if we had grabbed our chances, we could have pushed harder. Slip catching and fielding, still need to work on it. Firstly, from his (Rahane) initial days, he's always fielded at gully. Gully is a very difficult position to field at. So we trust him there, with his reflexes. Last time I took a break, it was very difficult to handle. But my body is wanting it right now. It has taken a toll in the last couple of years, and right now is the perfect time to take a break before South Africa.
Virat Kohli is Man of the Match and Man of the Series
Chandimal: It was a really good series. Apart from the second game, we played some good cricket. Credit to the players and management. Most important thing was to execute the plans. Credit to the players. We got Rangana and Angelo, the most experienced players in our team. When Angelo performs well, the youngsters will watch him how to go about it. Credit to Dhananjaya and Roshen Silva in tough conditions against great bowlers. I've done a lot of hard work. I've made changes in my technique, and have worked with the batting coach. It was a tough time. In Sri Lanka, we aren't used to this (talking about air quality), so we struggled for the first two days. Today is a fantastic day. Feels like Sri Lanka. Thanks to Indian fans for supporting us. Thanks to Virat and team, they're really good. Wish them well for South Africa
