Post Match Presentation
Sam Curran | Man of the Match:
Great win for the guys. I tried to put a performance for my team. Luckily enough, we scraped to 166, all the six bowlers were excellent. I have worked a lot on my batting over the last few months. Basically I like to work hard on my batting, bowling, and fielding. I have opened in school cricket, but think this was the first time in professional cricket. Hopefully, we keep winning games. I didn’t really know (about the hat-trick). The crowd got really loud, I couldn’t hear myself. Ash told me what to do. Ryan Harris was standing at the third man region. Against the Local batters, I had to ask our players, “Where does he hit?”. Shami got two amazing overs in the end which helped.
Winning Captain | Ravichandran Ashwin | KXIP captain
Not many times you defend. When Rishabh hit the six, we just needed to hang in there. Credit to Shami and Curran. We were probably 25 runs short. We backed ourselves into defending with three spinners.
All in all, dew also came in and played a factor. We were going to bat first. We thought Chris wasn’t there. So, we wanted to give him all the license up front. We thought there was a grip there and are quite a bunch of experience but a lot of youngsters. Ours needs to keep ourselves fresh. We have a perfect experience. I have never seen a crowd like this in Mohali. It was extremely loud
Loosing Captain | Shreyas Iyer | DC captain
Really disappointing. With the way we were going, we came ball to ball and to lose from there, really disappointing. We didn’t play smart cricket. Therefore, Punjab outplayed us in all the departments. They were really cool and calm in that situation but they gave their best performance. I am really speechless. It is a crucial match and losing such matches is not going to benefit us.
The way Ingram was going, with ball to ball, it is really difficult to see us losing wickets like that from outside and the batsmen not taking an initiative to win the game. But it is good as well as it happened early in the tournament. We can correct the errors and come back strong.
We didn’t bowl that well in the powerplay, they came really hard us but we defended well after that and that was the point where we got the win. Yes, we gave away 60 odd runs after they reached 100. That is a positive for us but the team needs to improvise to get ahead in the scorecard. It is really going to be important for us to stay motivated. These are the small factors we have to work hard on. However, we have trained ourselves on how to finish the games. We are getting good starts but need to focus on winning the games. As a result, KXIP
