“Look guys, this win was not the result of any individual performance. We gave the performance of the whole team and we don’t want to give it up. It’s just the beginning, enjoy it, but don’t get too excited to beat India. We need to look ahead. And our focus should be on winning the T20 World Cup. We will never rest, just try to give your 100 percent. Please, don’t get too excited,” he said.
“We have to change our habit of being over-excited after games like these, I can see in each of you that this habit will change. We have to do this, no one else will come and do it for us. So, Very well done,” he said.
