    Virat Kohli, (Indian skipper & Man of the Match): It's about getting the responsibility back of being a captain (on scoring the double-hundred). The mindset is always to help the team and in that process, the big scores come. I think the moment you start thinking about the team, all the pressure goes away. I am at a stage at my career where I am happy to play for my team. Putting the team in a commanding position is the only goal. It's been a natural progress to have a calm mindset over the years. I have a good understanding at that and hence the muted celebration. You have to look forward to playing against the new ball. I enjoy batting with Jinks (Rahane), we run well between the wickets. We are the most successful Indian pair. Having him at the other end, keeps you focussed. The good thing is when we started, we were at number 7. The only way was up. We are all lucky to have this group of players. It's amazing to see that hunger for all the guys to keep improving. Saha was back to his best. Ashwin has stepped up beautifully and it's guys willing to work hard. It's been nice and looking at the larger picture - the Test Championship, every game has a value. No-one's going to relax from here.

    Faf du Plessis (South African Captain): we know in sub-continents, first innings is really important. You have to be on top of your game, if you aren't then you are found wanting. (On getting Kohli out) All the questions we threw at him, he had answers. It was a right selection for his pitch; I thought it was the right-decision making. KG managed to build some pressure but we needed another bowler, who could do that job. It was a young fast bowler (Anrich Nortje) making his debut, it's about learing and improving. Ngidi is fine and is working hard on his fitness. It's about getting his tank up and hopefully, we'll see if he plays the next Test. We will try to put up a better performance in the next Test.

    Wriddhiman Saha (Indian wicketkeeper): Actually prep-wise, Umesh, Ishant and Shami bowl at me, and we practice that way, they give me some really good practice with the moving ball. Our trainers help us out with stretches, ice-baths, and we are trained for the match-day really well, so credit to them for my fitness as well as my wicketkeeping performance.

    Umesh Yadav (3/37 & 3/22): I think I should treat him for those wickets down leg-side and that first catch, and I think they are Saha's wickets. I thought they were going for boundaries, that's always the thought when it's down leg-side, but I was thanking God and Saha that I got those wickets. There is a healthy competition in the side, and I knew that if I get a chance, I had to grab it. I had taken 10 wickets in the last home match in Hyderabad (2018 vs. West Indies), and I was confident about bowling in India. I had a good mindset and I was happy that I executed my skills on the ground.
