Kolkata Knight Riders Captain Dinesh Karthik :
After the match Dinesh Karthik said in post match presentation, It’s not a flawless game, you ‘d call it. We must enhance many places. The way Gill hit, Mavi caught bowling, Russell hit. The young people even pursue the high catches. Archer was so good bowling. A wicket to bat on wasn’t that easy. Several men looked better than they were. These boys are a challenging road to go through when they don’t play. We believed it was the best way to step forward in this sector to put runs on the board.
Rajasthan Royals Captain Steve Smith :
In the post match Steve Smith said that they did not go to plan absolutely. This occurs often in T20 cricket, we have many areas to develop and to continue. One way or the other you should go. KKR likes to chase, so we decided to push their bowling, but clearly we couldn’t do it because we lost too many wickets in advance. Few of us felt that in Sharjah we still played. The other side is very big and we did not see too many balls going, the other side is a bit shorter. It’s very different. Wouldn’t we change the size or the wicket, we have dropped some catches that cost us as well. We will wait and see for the conditions that we are faced with to shape which XI is best. Tonight disappointing, but we must move ahead.
Shivam Mavi | Man of the match :
In this match Shivam Mavi performed very well and took to very important wicket of Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson. If any of them stands on field they turns the match so these are very crucial wicket.
Shivam Mavi said in post match presentation that it was seaming when I began to bowl. So I thought I was going to stick to ordinary lines and lengths. It was going to be flatter before the game. I only kept a long way. So. I played before those great stars, but I didn’t know it was on the bat.
