Captains View 

KL Rahul | KXIP skipper: I was hoping I’d lose the toss but I would have wanted to bat first too. We’ve just not been able to close games with bat or ball. We’ve started well, but not closed down things. Set batsmen haven’t been able to convert into bigger scores.

Bowlers haven’t executed their plans but we know that can happen. I’m happy that the dressing room is a place where the boys are having a lot of fun. Doesn’t feel like we’ve lost a lot of games.

Guys know that we’ve made mistakes and everyone is keen to come back stronger. Three changes – Prabhsimran, Arshdeep, and Mujeeb come in for Jordan, Brar, and Sarfaraz.

David Warner | SRH skipper: We’ll have a bat. Last game while chasing, we lost a lot of wickets in the middle. And in the bowling, there were about two or three overs where they just overpitched. 170-200 has been the range of par scores. Don’t know how the track will play until you are out there. One change – Khaleel in for Kaul.

Player of the Match

Jonny Bairstow | SRH: Very pleased, that’s my third fifty in the competition. Consistency is the key. The partnership at the top was the key tonight. He’s (Warner) a good fun, we know what a quality player he is.

It was his 50th fifty in IPL, that record speaks for itself. It was important for us tonight to get a win. I am happy with the way I am striking it. The dimensions and the pitches here are slightly different from what we were expecting in India.

The temperature is definitely different as well. The guys held the nerve. (On keeping to Rashid Khan) It’s great fun, it’s tricky at times, you are always in the game.
