"What is important is how many players do you have in your team who are willing to put up their hands and perform on that day". Opener Tamim Iqbal was in the best of form in the tournament. Though there was no chance of a run out there, the ball hitting the part of the wicketkeeper's equipment did cost the Indian team 5 runs.

That India had a below par total to chase owed much to Kohli's decision to bring on unheralded spinner Kedar Jadhav. Mushfiqur Rahim struck two superb half-centuries. After beating Bangladesh by 9 wickets, Kohli in the post-match press conference revealed whose idea was it to introduce Jadhav into the attack. "You have to be stronger mentally in these type of games, but otherwise we did well". But it's not a war, it's the Team Proving they are the best.

"I don't think we have done well as a team".

"Even in conditions which are not offering too much, bowling such lines that we can produce wicket-taking opportunities", said Kohli.

"What I meant that day on your programme was that people should stop confusing Sarfraz otherwise we will see a good talent go to waste", Sohail insisted.

Unless Bangladesh was able to repeat its superb performance of theICC Cricket World Cup 2007 displayed at Port of Spain, where it had thrown India out of the tournament in the initial round, India's win of Thursday was nearly certain. In that context Bangladesh still lack that mental maturity needed to transform from a lightweight to a heavyweight. Bringing Kedar Jadhav worked really well in the game and India came out as a victor. Back in 2013, the Blues defeated England in a 20-over rain-affected final.

"Raees is a quality bowler as well and he showed in the semifinal that he can do the job for us". But at the same time we still have a long way to go if we are to compete in big tournaments against big teams. That's why we're so unpredictable and that's why we have a lot of following.

He was also specific while detailing the areas where Bangladesh still lag behind in big-match situations. We need to learn.

"The other thing I said was that the facilitators of the win can not be named; however I said nothing about match-fixing or any other foul play - my statement was misunderstood. There is no doubt that his wicket will give us an advantage", Amir was quoted as saying in the media on Saturday (June 17).

"What we need is more mental maturity in this sort of situation".

"Yeah, obviously the boys should feel pride, but I think in a tournament like this, you have to be, I think, physically or skill-wise at your peak", he said.
