    Indian captain Virat Kohli: "Amazing, as you guys have spoken about everything. The way we have come off as a side. Really proud of the whole team. Even we traveled away from home, we competed in every game. It's amazing to see the mindset of the team, it's been a brilliant series for us. To be the best side in the world, you need to multi dimensional. Ishant was the only experienced bowler in the lot. The fielders started working hard as well. The catching has been brilliant as well. It's great to see when you operate in such way. Even not with not much experience, we believe we can win anywhere in the world. The game responds to hard work and mindset. We have been doing well in the limited formats too."

    Rohit Sharma, Man of the Match and Man of the series: "I said it before as well, thankful to the management. Considering how the series has gone by, I can take a lot of positives. The new ball will be a threat anywhere in the world. It's been a great start, so I don't want to let it go. That started long back in 2013, when I started opening for India. Once you are in, you can play your game. That's what I have done, I follow a template. You need support from the management, coach, captain, that has helped a lot. Test cricket is a different ball game, getting that big score will give me the confidence. I was trying to be mindful about that. You need to be disciplined, I kept talking to myself. I wanted to make a big score and get my team into good positions."

    Faf du Plessis, South African captain: "That's the frustrating part of the tour. Starting the first innings at Vizag, there were good signs for us. But we went the other way and kept making more mistakes as the series went on. You got to give credit to the Indian team. This is a really tough Indian team under Virat. Be it in the batting, bowling or even fielding, we were dominated across the series. We spoke about this (India's spin threat) before the series. The mindset coming here, especially after 2015, was to be prepared for the spin attack. But the pitches were fantastic. India's seamers were outstanding through the series. Our seamers were good for 30-40 minutes but their's were able to do that throughout the day. I think it's the nature of the skill of the bowler. If you look at those who succeeded this series, it's their skiddy nature that's key but they're also in the right areas most of the time. In SA, the natural length is shorter and you need to make that adjustment here. That's what you need to do in international cricket. We have young guys coming through and in the coming 3-4 years, they will get experienced. Been a really tough series for us but we need to ensure that when we tour again, we are better equipped. This is the toughest place to tour, the statistics say that. They've won, 11 or 12 series in a row? So, it's been a very tough place to tour and it should only get better for us from here."
