McCullum: "The runs were just not enough. We just weren’t up to the standards. The top order struggled and Deccan handled the conditions very well. We never really gave the pitch any opportunity to play to our strengths, and we need to bounce back well after this. It was tough for the bowlers with such a low score to defend."
Glichrist: "It was an ideal start, something we’ve been working towards. We’ve had the intensity that you saw today in our training camp, and we’ve tried to learn from the experience last year. It was fantastic to see the guys unveil their fielding skills today, and we need to replicate this in the future matches. We suffered a lot of defeats last year in games that were 50-50, but we need to build up the momentum further."

RP Singh is the Man of the Match for his four-for.

RP: "It’s an amazing feeling. It’s a much better wicket than the ones in India with some bounce and swing. Edwards set the tone, he bowled superbly from the other end."
