Ollie Pope | Player of the Match:
 100 percent (best knock). To come here to India, probably the toughest place for a batter, to start the series like this, to do it in a winning cause, heads and shoulders above the other four (hundreds). I got a bit luckier in the second innings. I played and missed a few. First up, I was at peace with getting out caught at slip like I did in the first.

I was focused on covering the inside edge. I knew that was the real danger ball. I maintained that mindset and really wanted to be positive with my sweep and reverse sweep. I have changed my technique slightly for this series specifically. I had a shoulder surgery, so I had a long time to prepare for this series. Made some adjustments, worked hard on my game. The family have had early starts throughout the week, they can finally get some sleep, will be nice catching up with them.
