After winning the game, the newly appointed skipper of RCB Faf du Plessis shared a few words in the post-match presentation. "Very happy. Close small margins game are very important at the start. Small score, we just tried to be positive but very good bowling from their seamers.

The ball swung a little more earlier but today there was seam and bounce. Two three days ago, it was 200 and today it was 130. We would like to be more convincing. Just the experience," Faf du Plessis was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
