Losing skipper, Eoin Morgan said-
‘Yes, disappointing (to lose). Played some really good cricket for most parts of the game, we looked comfortable in the chase, but they are a strong team, came back well and sad that it didn’t work out for us. Made a couple of errors, might want to type it out. An ideal sport must be daring, it got here to price us within the final 10 overs of the sport (not being daring sufficient to complete off the chase). We wanted to bat round and full the chase – not fairly positive what occurred (talking if the pitch tended to go gradual within the second innings), within the video games which have been performed thus far, barring AB de Villiers within the chase (within the RCB v MI sport), that appears to be telling a story (of groups struggling within the run-chase). We put ourselves in a superb place to win in the present day, however then to not win, that’s one thing we have to deal with.’
Winning skipper, Rohit Sharma said-
Was an ideal fightback, wonderful fightback by every one among them. You don’t see a sport like this usually. Lots of confidence from this sport and we transfer ahead. KKR batted brilliantly within the powerplay. Rahul got here and bought us essential wickets within the center;. Krunal bowling these overs on the finish was very important as nicely. It was a whole crew effort and credit score to all of the bowlers. As batters you want to stick with it. The pattern in Chennai is you may’t hit from ball one. You need to plan earlier than you go into bat. We have been 15-20 runs brief. Should have batted nicely on the fag finish. We want to know how we have to bat on the loss of life however I don’t wish to take something away from the boys. SKY has carried his type nicely. He performs fearless and it’s a optimistic signal for us within the first few overs. We want a man there to do this. We have performed the ending half nicely as a crew, simply that we have to perceive the surfaces right here and adapt.
Player of the match, Rahul Chahar said-
There was strain once they began nicely and a spinner needed to pull it again. My energy is to show it at tempo. I loved Tripathi’s wicket. I intentionally tried to bowl a flipper to Rana understanding it’s my final ball of the spell. Rohit offers me plenty of confidence and the administration too could be very supportive.
