KKR Captain Dinesh Karthik :
A team has a number of key players. For us, Narine’s one. Back him is the least we can do. Bad 2-3 games, don’t mind. Well, seeing Tripathi at the end. He’s very flexible, nice thing about Russ. He could bat somewhat up, somewhat down. It’s very fluid to bat. I began at three, I beat at seven today. They fought very well as the guys fought at the beginning. Back in Sunil and Varun I have a lot of trust, paid off.
CSK Captain MS Dhoni :
There was a period in the middle, where two to three good overlaps were bowled. If we bat and didn’t lose two or three wickets in a row, if we did better. In the first 5-6 over, we had to be careful. Curran was very well with the ball, and I think the ball generally was fine, but today the batsmen dropped the bowlers. Strike rotation was important, but I don’t think there were limitations in the final couple of overrides, so we have to be creative as they hit a long line constantly. This is where we need to better adjust to the bat, and I don’t believe we have.
Rahul Tripathi | Man of the match :
Everything like a dream is happening to me. Was prepared for the positions of both. When the ball came in, I figured we could hold the scoreboard, so those shots were no different. This is a trip. It is a trip. Have loved this journey. This journey. It’s special to come to KKR. It’s very special presenting for Shahrukh sir. This is a really dream.
