Mayank Agarwal-PBKS (Player of the Match): He's (KL Rahul) going for a surgery, hopefully he should be back. Would've liked two points but we were ten short on that wicket and for the kind of PowerPlay they had, we had to really scramble there. One batsman had to bat through and that was the plan, it was my day and tried to get as many as we can but didn't get as many in the middle overs but at least ended well. We have to shut this off and turn up next game and put our best foot forward, figure ways how to get those two points. Kudos to Harpreet, the way he turned and also hit a crucial boundary, he's bowling exceedingly well. It's about doing well as a unit, hopefully we will doing well next game.
Rishabh Pant (DC): Shikhar and Prithvi gave us a very good start. In the first innings, the ball was gripping, and even in the second innings, it was slow but the way they started was commendable. It feels so good when you have a great start in every match. Most of the things are sorted but we need to try a few things for the Kolkata leg. The competition is very good, we have a gun pace bowling attack and it's difficult to make everyone play. I am enjoying captaincy, learning each and every day. Everyone is helping me.
