DC’s skipper Rishabh Pant was named the Player of the Match for his remarkable knock of 88* runs from just 43 balls.

-Rishabh Pant added

“[On giving Salam the 19th over] We have seen Nortje was having a tough time. T20 is a funny game. Especially in the second innings, after the 15th over, the ball was coming on nicely… It will come out some day or it won’t. Definitely at 44 for 3, the only conversation between Axar and me was to keep going and target their main spinners. Each and every day I feel better. I give my 100%. Every hour I just love being on the field. Just try to do my best on the field.”

Shubman Gill said:

“I think we played some really good cricket. Disappointing to lose in the end, but great character shown by everyone. When you’re chasing 224, there’s not much to discuss. You have to go from ball one and keep smashing them. Impact Player has a bit of a role [in the big scores]. Teams have an extra cushion, so they just keep going. At one stage we thought we would be able to restrict them to around 200-210. We gave away a few extra runs in the last couple of overs. But the good thing about chasing is that you know what you are chasing. It’s a small ground, and it’s chasable. Execution becomes very important [for bowlers]. If there’s nothing in the wicket for the bowlers, then you have to execute your plans – or your yorkers.”
