MI vs KKR: Who Said What

Nitish Rana (KKR captain): I think we were 15-20 runs short. Credit to PC bhai (Piyush Chawla) for the way he bowled. Feel bad for Venky, he scored a hundred, played so well but finished on the losing side. The whole team knows this was the second hundred for a player from KKR. Other players from our side will also score hundreds going forward. They targeted our best bowlers and it paid off for them. We could have done better in the powerplay. I would want my bowling unit to deliver more. Anyone can have a bad game or two but it is happening consistently with us. We will go back to the dressing room and talk about it.

Suryakumar Yadav (MI stand-in captain): “We had a chat in the dugout that we had to carry the momentum from the last game and the boys put on a show. I would have loved to finish the game but nevertheless, I was very happy with the way the team played. In the afternoon we thought the wicket was a little dry, but the way the guys batted it settled down in the evening. At the Wankhede in day games, 160-170 is a good score but Kishan got us off to a great start. I took my time in the first five-seven balls and thought if I could get my eye in I could get a score. We know that if the top order gives a good start, what kind of firepower we have lower down the order. It was a legendary spell [Piyush Chawla]. He put his hand up under pressure.”

Venkatesh Iyer (Player of the Match): Would have been happier if we would’ve finished on the winning side but happy with my performance. They’ve shown faith in me and it was a very beautiful wicket to bat on. Once you’ve scored those 30-40 runs, it’s just about how you continue. Both of their new ball bowlers were swing bowlers and when you allow swing bowlers to settle down, it can be a problem. So I used my feet, went deep in the crease. After the ball stops swinging it’s about how you manoeuvre. I keep getting hit in every game or the other. The thought about going out came but my coach and players urged me to keep going. I think we fell 15-20 runs short. But given how MI were going, they would’ve chased it down in the next over anyways. But their death bowling was very nice. If we look at their last three-four overs, they didn’t give away too many runs. Credit to them.
