Virat Kohli is the Man of the Match: "The guys can be really proud of the way we played today. After the last game, I told the guys not to lose their head, it was a good game. There was a calm energy in the dressing room after this. Last year was tough for me in the IPL, but this year, I am not putting any expectation on myself. 160 odd was a good effort by our bowlers and it was a par score and I am glad that we chased it down. We would just concentrate on our game. "
Sangakkara: "Virat was the difference between the two sides. We were maybe a bit too slow in the first 10 overs, but then other batsmen caught up with the rate. White and Perera paced their innings really well and got us to a strong position. It hurts to lose, but we need to regroup quickly."
Moises Henriques went past 1000 Twenty20 runs during the previous match and needs one wicket to get to 50 wickets.
His run-out in the last match put Amit Mishra on top of the list of batsmen with the most ducks in the IPL. Mishra has eight, as does Manish Pandey, who was out for a duck in the game against Kings XI Punjab.
