Shreyas Iyer is the Man of the Match
JP Duminy: It's quite a small ground so I will take 6 of those sixes. It was a nice wicket to bat on. We got to 190 but it was important for the bowlers to bowl well. Hopefully, we can make it better. He gives his 100 percent no matter what cap he puts on. We always knew that if we get over the 2-win mark. If we can win more games at home, it will be great.
|Rohit Sharma: I think they played really well right from the start. To come out and post a total like that on that wicket was just great. We shouldn't have let them post that total, but we need to give them credit. They played really well. They bowled great line and lengths too. The same batting line-up scored more than 200 in the last game. We wanted to have the same batting line-up, but we couldn't do well today. Initially, Simmons and Parthib got off to a good start, but we failed to capitalize on that. We have to look forward and we need to forget these losses. We need to go to Mumbai and prepare for the Sunrisers.|
