Today Match Player of the match

Shreyas Gopal | Player of the Match: I still say I’m fortunate and lucky to get such big wickets. As a youngster, it’s not going to come everyday and it’s one of my biggest moments. I was more fortunate and our plans worked today. We created a lot of pressure in the first 6 overs. They didn’t get 65-70. They had to make runs off me, I had better chance of taking wickets. Just goes on gut feeling, nothing planned as such. It’s good to have few different balls up your sleeve and be able to execute. We (wrist spinners) get to spin the ball both sides and that’s probably an advantage. It’s about bowling better areas and sticking to plans.

Today Match winning captain

Ajinkya Rahane | RR captain: “Our thinking was, dew would come into effect. His (Shreyas Gopal) record against Virat and AB – we all know. Overall, it was a great team effort. After 3-4 overs, we came to know that the wicket was slow. All the bowlers chipped in really well. That’s what we want to do. We played good cricket in the last three matches. So,Today it was about giving more than 100 percent. I think the way he (Tripathi) batted with Smith and Stokes, it was incredible”.

Today Match Losing captain

Virat Kohli | RCB captain: “We were 15-20 runs short. Marcus and Moeen got us to a competitive score. With the dew factor, 15 runs more would have been more challenging. It wasn’t easy to score in the end as the wicket became slower”.

“We made a lot of mistakes in the match (dropped catches). Therefore, In a tournament like IPL when team hasn’t got off to a great start then bodies in the outfield can be a bit stiff. There can be a bit of nervousness. In four games, we would have wanted one or maybe two games to go our way. We have 10 games to go. So, hopefully we can turn things around. We played well against Mumbai and in this game. Because this tournament is not that long, it is not going to go on for months and you have to think on your feet and have to think about the best combination going forward. Hopefully, we will get fresh guys in and they can give a match-winning performance”.

Today Match Purple cap holder

Yuzvendra Chahal (Purple Cap holder): “Obviously it is a great feeling if you are the highest wicket taker in the tournament but sad that we didn’t win the match. Leg spinners have many variations compared to other bowlers. We also get more turn from the surface. The googly and top spinner also spin more. It is the fourth loss in a row, but we have 10 games to comeback. You need to stay positive in such a situation. I am use to conditions there, sixth year with RCB, and I like bowling at the Chinnaswamy”.
