Quinton de Kock is the Man of the Match
Zaheer Khan: Special effort by Quinton and Karun both. We know it was a high scoring ground. Of course special mention has to be for Shami and Morris. My bad over helped me figure out what was going to work here, asked them to bowl back of a length. RCB have a top heavy batting line up. At one stage, we were wondering getting Gayle out was a good thing or bad. We ticked one box today and now we can take our foot off the paddle for a while.
Kohli: Yes it is a hard one to swallow. Could have been much closer in the end. Credit goes to Delhi the way they batted, especially de Kock, he took the game away from us. Karun as well for hanging around there. We thought we could get to 200. But Delhi bowled well, set the field right and executed their plans. Shami bowled well, Brathwaite bowled well in the middle. But it happens in cricket. We have to believe that we can get a batsman out. If you are hesitant then the batsman is going to sense it and get on top of you.
