“When you play for a franchise like Mumbai, you are always expecting to go out and perform. I wouldn’t call that as pressure. More than anything, it’s expectations. It was very tough (to drop big players), I want to back the players and keep the same squad going. We have had on and off-season this time around. We have had a fabulous run as a franchise. It was wonderful to be part of this set-up, we can be very proud of that. We were getting momentum in Delhi and there was a break, that didn’t help the team. It was a collective failure of the group.
Very happy with the win today, we gave everything, I am sure it was entertaining for the fans as well. They have always been supportive, they have always stood by us. Little disappointed we didn’t go through. He (Ishan Kishan) is a very talented player, just the right position for him to bat is very crucial. Today was a perfect game for him. That is the situation he likes. It was wonderful to see from the other end.” Said the MI skipper Rohit Sharma during the post-match presentation.
“It was really hot, and it was an intense 20 overs. My calves are a bit cramped. I think the surface was the best of the tournament. We knew MI would come hard at us and they did. Our fast bowlers gave away a few extra runs that cost us in the end, but this was the best pitch of the tournament. We had a lot of changes on the side, that didn’t work for us. We were struggling in the first few games too and had to pull ourselves up in the second leg but the whole team didn’t put in complete performances, despite some really good individual performances.” Said Manish Pandey after the completion of the match. Ishan Kishan was name the player of the match after his sensational knock.
“A very good thing for me and for the team getting some runs, and getting into good touch before the World Cup. Was in a good state of mind, was very positive. We had to get somewhere around 250-260, it was the intent and positive intent. The one I smacked off Malik through the covers – that’s the one (his favorite shot). In this tournament, you have to be prepared for every circumstance. It’s important to be in the right mindset and you need to go with your best form. I had a good chat with Virat Bhai, Jasprit Bhai also helped me. Even HP, KP was there to support me.
Everyone supported me and they said it’s a learning stage for you, make sure you learn from here and don’t make the same mistakes in the upcoming world cup games. That was the part where I learned from them. I was just taking one point at a time. I would love to open and that’s what Virat Bhai said – ‘you are select as an opener, you just have to be prepare for that.’ In the bigger stage, you need to be prepared for every situation I feel.” Said Ishan Kishan after winning the player of the match award.
