RR vs CSK IPL 2023 Match 37 Who said what
Yashasvi Jaiswal | Player of the Match: “I enjoyed both (on which POTM award he liked better). I was trying to hit the ball but I was aware which side the wind was blowing, but I was also clear in the mind that I have to go and play good cricketing shots.
“It is not about just this season, I have been putting in the effort with the team management and I keep speaking to senior players like Dhoni sir and Virat bhai. I enjoy pressure and want to be there when there is pressure. I was only thinking of keeping my strike rate high and I knew we need 200 to defend on this surface.”
Sanju Samson | RR captain: “Winning this game was needed for the team atmosphere and for the fans, also our first win in Jaipur. We can’t go one dimensional; if you’re playing in Chinnaswamy or Wankhede, you will chase but looking at the conditions here, I took the chance to bat first.
“Even when we batted, all the youngsters came in and did the job. The mindset of attacking is a nice change. Credit has to go to the management and the support staff for what players are doing, you see Jaiswal at the RR academy during the off-season playing a lot of balls.”
Adam Zampa: “We have been under the pump the last couple of days, boys put up an amazing total on a pretty tricky pitch. To get a couple of wickets was a nice feeling. I watched Theekshana, a little bit of extra pace and a little bit shorter than usual, hopefully the ball skids on a bit and does its job.
“Young players, both great to watch [on Jaiswal and Jurel]. We have seen them do what they did throughout the competition. I have been playing cricket for a long time, mentally ready and prepared for whoever you are playing against. Train a little bit and enjoy the poolside.”
MS Dhoni | CSK captain: “It (target) was quite a bit above par. The reason was the first six overs, gave too many runs, but at the same time the pitch was best to bat on at that time. Even when they were finishing the edges kept going for boundaries. They got par+ score and we were not able to stop the runs.
“I felt his (Pathirana) bowling was very good, not that he bowled badly. The scorecard doesn’t reflect how well he bowled. Yashasvi batted really well, important to go after the bowlers, took calculated risks.
“It was slightly easier against our bowlers because we had to assess the right lengths. Even then Yashasvi batted well at the top end and at the end Jurel batted really well. I think my first ODI hundred in Vizag gave me some 10 games, but the 183 over here gave me the chance for one year, so this venue is close to my heart.”
