Man of the Match: AB de Villiers
Virat Kohli: The table is wide open. It is the right time to get a win for us. It was a great feeling playing in front of a big crowd. Surprising to see so much support for us in Delhi. Again not a clinical show with the ball. At this stage of the tournament, maybe we will prefer bowling first because the batsmen can take more responsibility. Ask the opposition team to get the runs and tell them we are coming to chase it down. I wasn't happy with the way we finished with the ball, but AB told me that we can do this and that is what helped me get my focus back and then I let my instincts take over. We were looking to finish it with a few more overs to spare to help the net run rate, but the two points are very important.
Shreyas Iyer: With the kind of start we got, getting to 180 I thought was more than enough. Unfortunately, we weren't able to defend this as well; we aren't executing the plans we form in the dressing room. I don't feel the pressure of captaincy at all. Today was one of those bad days when I couldn't time the ball well at all. The only thing you can do to handle pressure is by scoring regularly. I have a few coaches and mentors whose inputs I take regularly. I wouldn't like to take their names, just in case I forget someone. We are already making 3-4 changes in every game and we are hoping to set up our team for the next season
