Suryakumar Yadav (50 not out) and Shivam Dubey (31 not out) made an unbeaten partnership of 67 runs in 65 balls for the fourth wicket to give the team victory.

Rohit said after the match, 'We knew it would be difficult to score so many runs. Credit goes to us for achieving this. Suryakumar and Dubey performed well in the end.' Praising the American players who gave a tough fight in the match, Rohit said, 'We have played with many players in America. I am happy to see the development of their cricket. We have seen them play in MLC. They are hard-working players and are making their mark in international cricket.'

On this occasion, Rohit said that he is relieved to have reached the Super Eight but the conditions on this New York ground were very difficult. He said, 'Arshdeep started brilliantly. We wanted to test our options in bowling, so Dubey also bowled. Reaching the Super Eight is a big relief. It was not easy to play here. Every match here could have gone in favor of any team.'
