After winning the match, Riyan Parag has been named Man of the Match and he also shared a few words about the game in the post-match presentation. "A bit of satisfaction. The Royals have shown faith in me for the last three years, and I am paying them back bit by bit.

I love pressure and I am just showcasing my abilities. During the time-out, Sanga came out and we agreed that 140 was a good total on this wicket. We decided to go big in the last two overs.

I wanted to target Hasaranga in his second over, but we lost wickets, and so I had to strategize and go after Hazlewood and Harshal," Riyan Parag was quoted as same as in Cricbuzz.

Then, Kuldeep Sen, the youngster who got 4 wickets under his belt also shared his views during the post-match presentation. "I missed the last few matches with an injury at the nets, it's coming up well now.

Watching the first innings and the way Siraj and Harshal bowled, I realized that the ball was stopping from a good length, so Sanju told me to hit the deck hard, the plan was to keep it on a good length. We didn't want to concede easy runs," Kuldeep Sen was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

However, at the end of the first half, Harshal Patel and Riyan Parag have been engaged in a heated conversation as both their teammates took over control of the situation.
