The player of the match is none other than KL Rahul, he led his team from the front with his powerful knock of 82 runs. KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock were really a game-changer duo tonight for LSG.

Feels good at the end of the day. When you win, most decisions feel right. We were committed to our plans. Really happy with that. Depending on the wicket, I deploy my bowlers. We tried to mix it around. The bowlers executed really well. The team is sticking to the plans. Halfway stage, I would have been happy with 160. The wicket was slow and had a bit of grip. MSD walked in and the pressure got to the bowlers. He has had the intimidation on opposition bowlers. Our young bowlers were put under pressure with the crowd going berserk as well. 15-20 runs extra they got. I have been trying to assess the situation. It came off today. I knew the CSK spinners would put the pressure on. I picked my bowlers and it came off. Quinton batted well as well. Made life easy for both. Different ball games playing in Chennai. Was playing in front of a mini Chennai crowd. We are a young team and happy to play in front of such a crowd.”

-KL Rahul 

We finished well with the bat, couldn’t have asked more with the situation we were in. After powerplay, we couldn’t capitalize on the start we got and we kept losing wickets at regular intervals. I would say we were 10-15 runs short. Slightly difficult with such a total, with the impact sub-rule you need 10-15 or even 20 runs extra. Pitches like these seem sluggish to start off with but with dew coming on it gets better, 190 would have been a good score. One area we would like to improve is taking wickets in the powerplay. That will put pressure on the opposition. We need to work on it. Good to play them again (next game at Chepauk). We will come up with good homework done now that we have three home games.
