Rohit Sharma | MI skipper: At the end of the day you have to play good cricket, toss shouldn’t be a factor. It’s a good challenge for us, we know the conditions here. We need to restrict them to a decent total. We are playing with the same team. I don’t see a reason to change. It’s been a great journey (150th match for MI) – it’s a good landmark to have.
Shreyas Iyer | DC skipper: We are looking to bat first. I think we are doing pretty well while defending. The ground factor also plays an important role. Two changes – Alex Carey comes in for Hetmyer. Rahane comes in for Pant who got injured in the last game. The wicket looks amazing, we hope it gets slower in the second innings.

Man of the Match
Quinton de Kock | MI: I enjoyed the win at the end of the day. I just kept it simple. I’ve been batting well in the nets, and it was just a matter of doing well in the game. I knew eventually I would get a score, just had to capitalize on the opportunity.
I don’t think it’s getting any cooler, compared to South Africa. We are getting used to the weather, but it does get quite difficult in this heat and humidity.
