“It feels good when the game is won. There wasn’t a lot to think in the final over, we just had to hit sixes and that’s what me and David (Miller) were talking about. I knew (on the last-ball six) that it had gone off the middle of the bat, so it would clear the fence. I did premeditate, felt he (Odean) bowl wide outside off to me, premeditated and it executed well for me,” a very happy Rahul Tewatia told the host broadcaster Star Sports after his special performance.

“The dressing room is really chilled. Ashu Bhai (Nehra), Gary Kirsten and the support staff have done a really good job. We’re just told to execute the plans well and backed well,” he added.
