20.0 - Comment! Sanju Samson: Despite the loss, I think the team played really well. I don't have words to tell, very close game, came close but unfortunately.. I don't think I could have done anything more, timed it well, but unfortunately could not clear the man in the deep. It is all part of the game (when asked about the bowlers going for plenty from both sides), we thought the wicket was getting better and we could chase the target down. The coin looked really nice so I pocketed it, asked the referee if I can have it, but he said no. I think the second part of the innings was the best I ever played, took my time and respected the bowlers, whereas in the first part I was not timing it very well. I took the singles and got into a rhythm and then I started to play my shots in the second half. I enjoy my shots but I come back to the present after I play those shots. It automatically happens, when I focus on my skills and watch the ball and react. Sometimes I lose my wicket also, so I just play the same way. It is about trusting my processes to be honest, and I did that, and it came off tonight.
20.0 - Comment! KL Rahul: We batted really well and bowled well in patches. We were not consistent with the lengths but the bowlers will learn. A lot of talented, skilful players, and it is important that we back them. It was an amazing innings from Hooda, and that is the kind of fearless batting we want to see in the IPL. We have been tentative sometimes, and it is important for us to play fearlessly at times, so I am happy that the expectations are being understood and met. Gayle and Hooda were both good that way. I always go to Arshdeep for crucial overs and he enjoys the pressure. He loves being in the contest and I love throwing him the ball, and he trusts himself and trusts his skills, so that's always good to see. I did no stop believing in the team, and we knew a couple of wickets will bring us back. The game went deep only because me included, we dropped some sitters. We bowled well until about 11-12 overs. We are used to this, and it is not something new for us, but a win like this brings the team together.
20.0 - Comment! That is it for this match. Hope you all had enjoyed our live coverage. Join us tomorrow for more cricketing action. Bye for now.
