Ashwin: ‘I think it’s 5 Man of the Series awards already, isn’t it?. It’s a great feeling. This Test match finish was a fitting finale for the boys. We go second on the table. The South Africans dug in deep, especially Amla and AB. It was a great spell towards the end for both of us – me and Umesh. You need to take your time on this wicket. The fizz goes off on the surface with time. You can actually play balls off the front foot. He has been a massive influence. He just gets wickets that are really important. The way he bowled in the series, it was a very special performance from him as well. Not forgetting the performance of Umesh today.’
