"It was one of my lucky days. I nicked twice and they dropped it. You have some lucky days and it was one such day. I was playing well in earlier innings too but got out. Today it wasn't easy out there but myself and Karthik (Dinesh) played well," a satisfied Dhawan said at the post-match conference. (Highlights)

Asked about his red-hot form since making his Test debut in March, Dhawan said, "I have scored well in domestic cricket also and been in good form. Today, we concentrated on playing each ball on its merit after we were reduced to 65 for four. We didn't try to play too many shots. By the grace of God, I would surely serve Indian cricket for a long time."
