"It's just pure talent, with the young batsmen I suppose Dhananjaya has played a bit of first-class cricket, but Kusal Mendis hasn't. We've got to take that chance with some people sometimes, and it's paid off. You can see the way they batted in extreme conditions - it was turning square. They had Nathan Lyon, Jon Holland, and Steve O'Keefe in the first game. Mitchell Starc has been outstanding in the last three or four weeks as well.

Because of that, I changed (my batting) a bit, Since we’ve lost five wickets, I couldn’t go for my shots as I usually do. My thinking was to face more balls and get the Aussie bowlers to toil in this heat. Later on I thought of going for few shots when they got tired. It was also a crucial time. We all know the heat here. If we could keep Australia out in the heat here, we can get the advantage when they’re batting"
