Shikhar Dhawan

New Zealand have won the toss and elected to field first.

Shikhar Dhawan, Man of the Match: I was very happy with the way I batted today. I havent really performed well in this format. Rohit started off slightly slow, so I had to take up the aggressor’s role. I can play anywhere on the ground. I tried to play behind the ball and it worked for me.
Virat Kohli: Very clinical performance from the whole team. The wicket I felt was a bit damp. But the two guys at the top of the order set up the platform for us. The catch from Hardik was one of the best I have ever seen. Dhawan wanted to do well in this format as his record is good in ODIs. And he delivered. You need to back your top 5 batsmen. Hardik as number 6. As a captain, you always need an extra bowling option. Now when he is retired I am the captain of the side. To keep coming back after the surgeries has been really tough for him. He deserved this kind of a farewell. He has a beautiful family and it is time for him to take care of them.
Kane Williamson: It was a disappointing performance tonight. We were very poor on the field. India played superbly. There are no excuses. We needed to play better. India were outstanding and never gave us a sniff. The spinners bowled really well but the bowlers around them went for a lot of runs. I want to congratulate Ashish on a fantastic career. I have played against him and with him, always a gentleman on and off the field.

Kohli: “We would have bowled first as well, there is already a lot of dew on the field. The team that bowls better should win the game. Ashish Nehra is playing. He has been a great servant for Indian cricket. He’s one of the smartest guys I have played with. It’s sad to see him go. Shreyas Iyer makes his debut at No. 4.”
Williamson: “We are going to bowl, there is quite a bit of dew around. We are playing two frontline seamers and two spinners. It was a really good ODI series.”
