Post Match

Captains View

David Warner | Winning captain: We lost the toss tonight and won the game, so feels good. Unfortunately, Mitch Marsh was injured and we had to figure out how to get over in but young Abhishek Sharma came in.

We have been working really hard in our training with the death bowling, and today they were fantastic because they can be called up at any stage. We need a bit of luck with the bat, around ten of them found the fielders.

But in this heat, running does take a toll. I did hit some good shots, and I told the analyst that it only found the fielders.

Shreyas Iyer | Losing captain: We were pretty much happy with 162, it was a par score on this wicket. We had no idea how this wicket would behave as this is our first game here. They outplayed us in all three departments and credit to them for that.

It was surprising and in the second innings, it (pitch) was two-paced. When I went in, the ball wasn’t coming onto the bat. We thought dew would come on but we can’t give any reasons at this moment. We didn’t execute the way we wanted to. A lot of learnings from this wicket and conditions.

Ricky went in (during the time-out) and we needed one batsman to take a chance as the required rate was pretty high. The ground is very big and we didn’t capitalize on taking doubles. We knew boundaries are big here and doubles will be key for us, It didn’t work out for us, hopefully, next time we can maximize the opportunities.

Man of the Match

Rashid Khan: I don’t put pressure on myself, I just keep myself calm and composed and focus on what I can do. I just go out there and do the basics right. I bowled quicker today, when I started and bowled my first ball, I realized it.

You need two-three balls to know what the right pace is. In these conditions, you need to bowl back of a length to the batsmen. Warner always backs me and tells me that you know what’s best for the team.

That’s what we discuss in the field. Tough one and a half years for me, first my dad expired and it took a bit of time for me to come back. My mom was my biggest fan, especially in the IPL and when I was the MoM, she would always talk to me through the night.
