"Look 178 is a very good score. There are always 'ifs' and 'buts' in a T20 game. But to be honest with you, we really fought back well in the end. They were cruising with Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith batting in the 10th over, so to fightback from there we got to give credit to the bowlers," said Vijay in the post-match press conference.
