Player of the Match

Josh Philippe(95 runs off 57 deliveries)

Not (reflected on the innings) at the moment. Obviously what happened in the middle is still unbelievable. That bonus point makes things interesting. It is a nice team effort. I did a lot of work with Simon Katich. I had a good time with RCB, pretty special to mix with Kohli, AB, and Finch. It is great to get our first win.
