"I must put my hand up first as I got it wrong at the toss. The pitch got a lot slower. I admit that it's not going according to the plan. We are not here to blame anybody. It's a young squad and we need to look to perform a lot better next year," Pietersen said.

Rival captain Steve Smith said, "The batsmen played beautifully. The bowlers also stuck to their plans and executed it well. We try and target better players in the opposition and will do so in the business end also."

Veteran all-rounder Rajat Bhatia said that it meant a lot to him to get the international players like Kevin Pietersen and Ross Taylor out.

"I have never played for India so it is a great feeling to get these international players out," he said.

Man of the match Ajinkya Rahane was full of praises for the wicket and said that it helped by sticking to the basics.

"I really enjoyed batting on this wicket. The wicket was slightly slow but we didn't talk about the targets. We wanted to play a positive game. Whoever is set in the middle that guy needs to bat through and today it was my turn."
