Mumbai Indians got here again strongly within the final 10 overs of the match to defend a meagre total of 152 against KKR which managed solely 20 runs within the final 5 overs. “It was an excellent fightback by each one of them. You don’t see a game like this often. We will take lots of confidence from this game as we move forward,” Rohit mentioned on the post-match presentation ceremony.
The MI skipper referred to as the win an entire crew effort on a troublesome monitor.
“KKR batted brilliantly in the Powerplay. Rahul (Chahar) came and got us crucial wickets in the middle. Krunal (Pandya) bowling those overs at the end was vital as well.
“It was an entire crew effort and credit score to all of the bowlers. As batters, it is advisable keep it up. The pattern in Chennai is you may’t hit from ball one. You need to plan earlier than you go into bat. We had been 15-20 runs quick,” he said.
Losing captain Eoin Morgan was unhappy that his team didn’t play “daring cricket” within the remaining 10 overs.
“Yes, disappointing (to lose). We performed some actually good cricket for many components of the sport, we appeared snug within the chase, however they’re a powerful crew, got here again nicely and unhappy that it did not work out for us,” he said.
“We made just a few errors and might want to type that out. An ideal recreation must be daring, it got here to value us within the final 10 overs of the sport,” mentioned Morgan.
