“It was a fantastic team achievement. To lead this side and the support from the players, me pulling my weight with the runs, it has been a hard journey. It’s a team effort. To have the perfect game, we needed to gel. For us, the key was team effort all the way,” Warner said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

Asked about the target, Warner said: “Look we knew, we had to get 200. Virat Kohli, what a great leader! I can’t take it away from him. He set the benchmark this season. We knew we had to win three straight games. To win in Bangalore, we were underdogs. But, we batted well, bowled well and fielded well. In 24 hours, I will be off to the Caribbean. Time to have a beer.”
