"The best part of team India is they back all of the players whether you are doing well or poorly."

Shikhar Dhawan is Player of the Series. Two excellent innings in Brisbane and Sydney. He gets the crowd cheering. "I enjoy entertaining people and I enjoy playing entertaining cricket. Great to get such support from India supporters here. It's good that we could draw this series and ending on a winning note."

Aaron Finch: "I think they batted extremely well in the powerplay. We had a bit of a moment of madness when we lost a couple of wickets in our innings. I thought Zamps and Maxy bowled brilliantly." "I thought that the guys had a plan and unfortunately we didn't execute in the middle overs there. I think there's still a fair bit of work to do but there's positive signs. I'm feeling really good. Looking forward to getting up to Brisbane (for the Shield game)."

Virat Kohli: "Things become pretty easy when those two guys play like that at the top. I think DK showed great composure at the death along with me stringing a partnership to get us home. I think Maxy and Zampa bowled very well. I thought overall, skill wise we were better than Australia."

"I thought with the ball we were more professional today. I thought it was 180 type of wicket. Those 15 runs less were crucial. A level series is a great show of how the teams have played."
