Last Wicket: Umesh Yadav 2(3)

Over 19.0  

Carlos Brathwaite is the Man of the Match

Zaheer (DD): We have faith in our batters. We speak about freedom to express. We are still playing good cricket despite not getting good starts. As long as we get to par score, it is fine. Sam Billings and Karun got us in a winning position. Bowling in the first six was important and that is why me and Shami bowled three each. It was our plan to create pressure at the start. It was a little sticky with the new ball. The wicket gets better in the second innings. It was a brilliant catch and we needed that wicket.

Gambhir (KKR): We didn't expect they would get 186 after the first over. We thought they would end up with 150-160. Credit goes to them, with the way Karun Nair and Sam Billings batted. 160 was a par score, 187 is tough on any wicket. We need to be more professional with bat, ball and in the field as well. If it is a good wicket, then it is difficult to contain. You have to get wickets at every point of time. That is why we picked Hoggy and Sunil, but Nair and Billings laid the platform for the final overs. We ended up giving 15 runs more. Everyone has to deliver, if you have to win a tournament, everybody needs to contribute. We haven't played smart cricket in the last two games. The next game is very important for us and hopefully we do well, which is the last one for us away from home as we are playing 4-5 games at home after that.
