PBKS vs GT IPL 2023: Who said What

Shikhar Dhawan (PBKS Captain): “We did not put many runs on the board. We have to rectify that thing going forward. Absolutely – if you see the number of dot balls, if a team plays 56 balls, you end up losing the game. Losing early wickets puts you on the back foot and we need to work on that. Very proud of the bowling unit and we need to score more runs to give ourselves a chance.”

“Liam Livingstone will be coming into the squad. He came to practice yesterday, but it will take around three to four days to get back into complete fitness.” (On Livingstone)

Hardik Pandya (GT Captain): “To be very honest I would not appreciate for the game to go this deep. We need to go back to the drawing board. They bowled really well. Luckily all our batters are in good nick. They bowled really well, but I think we can take a couple of risks more and maybe we could get the game done. I was not surprised, wicket was good, but because of the hardness of the wicket, it may have looked a bit tough. But the pitch was a belter.

(On Mohit Sharma) “He has done a lot of hard work. He was a help bowler last season but he has shown patience and respected that his time will come. It would have been a tough pill to swallow if the game had gone the other side. I would like to finish the game earlier, not a big fan of taking it to the last over.

Mohit Sharma (GT) (Player of the Match): ” I have had a good time at this venue. I thought of sticking to my variations, had a chat with Hardik in the middle overs, luckily it paid off. You have to give your 100 pc and give your everything in the training. It is important to do the basic right and clear your head. We have our roles cleared out and I was sure about my role. It was important and credit goes to the coach for creating the environment.”
