The Indian skipper expressed his delight after the Men in Blue won all their first three games on the New York pitch. During the post-match ceremony after the USA game, he admitted that playing at the surface wasn’t easy. Sharma said, “It is a big relief, playing cricket here wasn't easy. We had to stick through till the end in all 3 games. Will take a lot of confidence from these wins.”

He added, “(On bowlers) We knew bowlers had to take the lead, run scoring was difficult. All the bowlers did the job, particularly Arshdeep. (On chase) Knew it would be tough. Credit to us for the way we held our nerve and got that partnership. Credit to Surya and Dube for showing the maturity and taking us through.”
