After the match, he said, "It has been a hard few days. I wasn't too happy with the way the bowlers and the fielders were doing, so I thought I should let the boys know what I felt at that time. It is rare, not many people have seen me angry. If I feel I need to be angry to get the best out of the boys, they maybe.” He also went on to shower praises on Shubman Gill who scored 65 runs from 49 balls.
