Sharma said that in the final against Chennai Super Kings, the plan was to ask his lead bowlers to go after the top batsmen.
"Plan was to bowl our strike bowler at their best batsmen. I want to thank everyone who supported us," he said.
Kieron Pollard, who was adjudged Man of the Match for his unbeaten 60, said it felt great to play best cricket against the best T20 team.
"I thank my family and the crowd for backing us. I have to try and take responsibility and it came off today," he said.
