India vs West Indies, 4th ODI (D/N),  Dec 8 2011, West Indies tour of India

Match Result : India won by 153 runs

Player of the Match: Virender Sehwag

Darren Sammy | West Indies captain: “Sehwag’s destroyed bowlers all over the world. We bowled some good balls but he played better shots. The pitch was a belter and we got pegged back by their spinners. But we managed to get past 250. There was some hope because we had seen South Africa chase 400 plus. But they kept taking wickets and that made it hard.”

Rahul Dravid: ” Its been very special for me to get felicitated in front of such a gathering. To MS, I know it was a tough day today. But keep working hard. I’m sure you are going to achieve quite a lot in the coming time.

To AB and the team, you’ve always been tough opponents. Really enjoyed the challenge, you always bring out the best in me. Congratulations on the series win” “Its been amazing. Its been 10 days since the announcement of my retirement. Its been an amazing 10 days. Been really proud. The way everyone has shown their love and support, I can’t thank you enough.

To the special Mumbai crowd, it all started here 10-15-20 years back. Just happy that my final speech is happening at Wankhede. Hopefully I continue to be associated with the game in some capacity or other. Just want to thank you all, to all the millions of follows of Team India and the game. Keep supporting them, they need you.

Marlon Samuels: “Its the Mumbai heat, it was incredibly warm. I am not as strong as MS and those guys to hit sixes. So I had t orun a lot of twos. Unfortunately I could not take the field today. Would have been nice. Suppose it is hard not to laugh at someone when they go through that [falling on his backside after hitting fours because of cramps].

I told to AB I was done, but AB told me to just keep going. The new guy would find it difficult. It was great to put up such a big score in the decider. Quinny was amazing, his strike rate was fantastic. Same with AB. My role was to just anchor the innings”

Virender Sehwag | India captain and Man of the Match: “I was cheering for Sachin when he got his double-hundred and it’s great to emulate that and break his record. I’d love to come back to Madhya Pradesh. The crowd has been great and thanks to them for cheering every run.

The pitch was great and allowed you to play your shots. I think you can only get a double-hundred when you’re experienced. The last time I played 47 overs I got 175, this time I got 200.Rahul Sharma is a good prospect because he bowls at around 90kph and if it stops and turns then it becomes hard for the batsman.

Stat: Well, whether you remember it or not, Sachin’s double also yielded the same result- India winning by a margin of 153 runs.
