Kane Williamson, Man of the Match: It was a very good surface, it was important to get a good score batting first. Once again, just those partnerships throughout were important and I think the icing on the cake were the couple of boundaries that took us past 180.
David Warner, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain: Kane (Williamson), first game for him this year,the way he and Shikhar (Dhawan) played laid an outstanding platform for the guys. We galvanise well together, we know what to expect. Fantastic performance from the guys with the bat and then following it up with the ball as well.
Zaheer Khan, Delhi Daredevils captain: 180 would have been ideal to chase, but the last over I bowled is going to haunt me for a bit. Bhuvi was just fantastic, the lengths he is bowling and the rhythm he is in, he is helping Sunrisers defend.
