23:56 hrs IST: That’s it. Thank you for joining us. Until next time, it’s goodbye. Cheers!
Bumrah (Man of the Match): “It was a fixed plan and it worked today. Usually, when you have too many variations, you try and stick to one or two of them because if you try too much, you go for runs. It is always very beneficial when he (Lasith Malinga)is around, so I always keep asking him what I have to do and what needs to be done. Nowadays, we have to practice with the wet ball, with the dew going around in this ground, it is difficult.”
Rohit: “It was a perfect platform for us to showcase our talents with the ball because we all know how the Sunrisers, especially the top four, bat, so firstly credit to the bowlers for coming out and restricting them. When they execute their plans, it becomes easy for a captain to manoeuvre his field. We know how Warner plays upfront as well as Shikhar. Lot of credit goes to the bowlers and the fielders. Parthiv behind the wicket makes it easier for me to adjust my field. Very good performance from the bowlers and well-finished by the batsmen as well. Still early days, just three games, but we would like to take a lot from the three games. I could not have asked for anything more from each of the 10 players. But now the big challenge, we go to Bangalore. You must have seen both of them on the ground. They (the Pandya brothers) are expressive, that’s just how they play. And we have given them the liberty to express themselves. It brings out the best from them and we also enjoy seeing that from the dressing room.”
Warner: “We needed a better score. If we sum it up, we were 20-30 short and one of us needed to get a big score. Credit to the bowlers. Tough circumstances with the dew. Bhuvi was excellent again. It was always in the back of my mind whether Rashid was going to be able to bowl with the wet ball, but credit to him. One full toss, but you can understand that. We need to go to Kolkata and start again with a positive attitude.”
