There was plenty of help from the surface: Arshdeep Singh
Winning the match, Arshdeep Singh was named Player of the Match for his heroics with the ball as he scalped 3 wickets conceding 32 runs in his spell.
During the post-match presentation, the left-arm pacer shared a lot about the game and said, "I had thought about what to say if I get the man of the match award and got a little excited (when he was eager to come and talk).
In the first over DC bhai (Deepak Chahar) set the tone and we knew there was plenty of help from the surface," was quoted as same as in Cricbuzz.
"The plan was to keep it simple and bowl in the right areas. I enjoyed Miller's wicket as I thought he was expecting an outswinger but I bowled an inswinger instead.
The thought was to get his (Maharaj) wicket but he played well and the plan could have been different. I am refreshed, had a good training session at NCA and hopefully I give such performances moving forward as well," he added.
After the game, Virat Kohli was seen having a conversation with his wife Anushka Sharma in a video call which he showed to the fans from the team bus behind the hotel.
