Winning the match, the skipper of the side, Rohit Sharma shared a few words about their performance in the post-match presentation. "Great performance from ball one. All batters showed intent.

Although the pitch was good, we played good shots and never got ahead of the game. You got to make use of those six overs in the powerplay. There is a certain approach we want to take in the powerplay.

You got to back yourself in this game, sometimes it comes off, sometimes it doesn't. The whole batting unit needs to understand the direction the team is taking and the guys were spot on today," Rohit Sharma was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

"Sometimes it does swing in the evenings and we wanted to utilize that. Both the new ball bowlers used the swing and stopped their batters. We were sloppy on the field. Those catches should have been taken. Pretty sure we will field pretty well in the coming games," he added.

However, during the game, Suryakumar Yadav played a spectacular shot off Tymal Mills over the fine leg region for a six. Fans enjoyed his show with the bat and Hardik Pandya has been the favourite for them.
