Now it’s time for the presentation
Winning captain AND Player of the Match Sanju Samson: “It was a very different wicket than what we thought. If you bowled Test match lengths, the wicket was helping fast bowlers. (Goals for IPL 2022) No long term goals, just want to win as much as possible and contribute to team’s victory. Working on my fitness, game awareness, understanding conditions, and choosing my scoring options. Not rushing. I would like to spend lot of time in the middle knowing I can catch up anytime. (Auction strategy) Yes I had some say. Having a leader like Sanga, he gave me final option. Luckily everyone, lot of cricketing brains have worked together to get a good squad. I think every season we come with great dreams, its a franchise that takes good care of us. Our owners trust us, give us space. One game at a time.”
Losing captain Kane Williamson: “I think we started beautifully with the ball. We’ve seen in all games there’s swing and assistance with the new ball – you have to try and make some inroads. We looked likely, but some fine margins. It was a good surface and they are a difficult team to stop. For us, we need to look at it logically and there are a number of things to improve on. That said, T20 throws some curveballs at you, got to get your chin up. (No balls from own bowlers) Its not something common to us as a side. It was a surprise. We certainly don’t want to be doing that. It represents extra deliveries and when you take a wicket off it, its never nice. A number of things you can’t control. (Umran Malik) Exciting, has the raw pace. He’s young, got some experience last year and surely will continue to get better. We’ve got to side down, we’ve had a few days before the next game. We know the nature of T20 can be fickle. We were put under pressure in the first innings’ second half, and for us as a young team we need to be nice and clear on what we want to execute. We want to learn. With the bat, it was tough – the ball moved. We threw some punches at the back end, and Rajasthan did that beautifully too.”
