After winning the match, Quinton de Kock shared a few words in the post-match presentation and said, " It was unbelievable. To winning these type of close games is always good for the team morale. Great win, boys batted really well.

We came out fighting and to come out on top is always special. We thought we can chase down 210. We understood after the first two or three overs that it was a really good wicket.

I'd say it was a par score on this wicket actually. It was nice to get out there and just bat, I wasn't in too much rush," Quinton de Kock was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

"Evin played a hell of a knock tonight which was unbelievable and so did the youngster. It was great for everyone. It was nervy, chasing 210 is always going to be a close game but the boys were quite calm.

It was mixed emotions between everyone. I was pretty calm myself, we knew what was going on out there. But still to get it done actually is still a hell of a job done," he added.

After that, KL Rahul, Gautam Gambhir and their teammates were caught singing a victory song in a video posted by Lucknow Super Giants on their official Instagram handle.
