Post Match Presentation
Rishabh Pant (Winning Captain): Obviously we had a lot of confusion and a little nervousness was there, because we learnt of the positive test this morning. There were talks about the game getting cancelled. We talked amongst each other. We thought we’ll focus on cricket – on the match. (Warner and Shaw) I don’t tell them anything – mostly I like to leave them alone. Everyone knows their roles. We will look to win every match. Results aren’t in our control but we can learn from our mistakes. I thought the ball was stopping a bit so I thought I’ll use a spinner and not a fast bowlers. I thought 150 would be a good enough score to stop them at.
Mayank Agarwal (Losing Captain): It’s a tough one. A day to forget. It’s best to move on and not dig too deep into this game. Obviously we lost too many wickets too early and that’s a concern. The more we look into it the more negatives will come out. It happens – we need to move on. I think 180 would have been good on this wicket. Could have given the spinners an over or two but did not at the time.
Kuldeep Yadav (Player of the match): Thank you, but I think I want to share this trophy with Axar cause he bowled well and took wickets in the middle. So, for me he’s the man of the match. I have played with KG a lot and he rarely uses his feet, which is why I give him the wrong ‘un. Second wicket Rishabh told me come round the wicket so I did it. The ball was spinning well. I just decided to keep the pitch full and that’s how that wicket fell. (On his accuracy) To be very honest this IPL I have a lot of confidence. Am very clear in my head and I know what needs to be done. I don’t see videos at all at anymore cause I’ve played with everyone mostly. So I focus on the feel and on my rhythm. After a long time I’m enjoying my bowling and credit goes to Rishabh cause he backs us a lot, even when we goes for runs. That’s a huge positive for us.
David Warner (60n.o off 30): I think the bowlers did a fantastic job and made it easier for us. We have to go hard in the powerplay. Credit to our bowlers to getting them out. To be honest we’re just glad to get out of our rooms and play cricket. (On his form) Am just sticking to the basics and putting my best foot forward. Form is temporary and class is permanent. Trying to be positive and happy to play with Shaw. They (his kids) just want to know why I haven’t scored a hundred and why I can’t do it like Jos, cause a 60 isn’t enough nowadays! (covid cases) It’s been challenging. Yesterday we had a live session. It’s unforutnate what’s happended in our camp – the pandemic has creeped in. But we’re really grateful to come out and play cricket. (Pushpa celebration) You got to keep up with tollywood mate (to KP). It’s Pushpa! (Runrate) When you’re not losing that many wickets and your near the target then you think. But it’s not something you focus on but its there in the back of your mind. (batting with Shaw) I’m loving it. It’s incredible how fast his hands our. He sets the time from ball one. Keep playing positive keep playing best towards your ability. (More than 1000 against Punjab) Certain teams you match up well and certain venues you do well. I just enjoy playing.
