Rohit Sharma: “A good birthday present. First time part of the Super Over, something new for us. We got a good start, wicket was always going to get slower. Gujarat stuck to their plans and kept us guessing.”
The Mumbai Indians skipper also lauded Krunal Pandya. “Hats off to Krunal to be there, and finish, not finish the game, but hang around. We never had long partnerships going. Previous game doesn’t matter too much. We never expected wicket to be so slow. Momentum plays a crucial part in this format. We’ve got great talent and about playing to our potential.”
