Winning captain Hardik Pandya received the Player of the Series award for his exceptional stints for the side and also shared a lot during the post-match presentation. "I don't mind winning (man of the series award), but there were so performances here that were exceptional.

This Man of the Series and trophy goes out to the whole support staff, I'm happy for all of them. (On doing things out of the box) Not to be honest, I always play the game like this," Hardik Pandya was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

"I try to read what is required, not have preconceived ideas. In my captaincy, I look to keep it simple and back my gut. I have a simple rule - if I go down, I will go down on my terms. We've spoken about taking challenges.

When we played the IPL final, we felt the second innings was more spicy but on this surface today I wanted to make it a normal game because it was a decider. Hence, we batted first. Hopefully, we can continue performing like this," he added.
