Rishabh Pant, Losing Captain: I think they outperformed us in all areas. As Delhi Capitals we have played many close games, there had to be a game where there is a massive difference between the two sides and unfortunately we are on the receiving end. I thought we were getting better, but that’s not the case. The only thing we can look forward to is the next three games, if we win them we qualify. We’ve got a lot going on, especially Covid and we’ve had a few stomach infections, but we’re not apologizing and we just want to keep improving. At the moment we can be more positive and we will talk about that with the guys, let’s be more proactive and be in a good mood to make good decisions in the next few games.
MS Dhoni, winning captain: It really helps. It would have been better if we had had a win like that somewhere earlier. It was a perfect game. The balls hit really well. It was a shot we wanted to win and go field first, but in my heart it was okay to lose the shot. The ball stops and comes, and it only behaves after 13-14 overs. Everyone has contributed something. Runs on the board really help, and it was important to limit their big hitters. Both Simarjeet and Mukesh have taken time to mature. They have the ability, the more they play, the better they get at the feel of the game. Ultimately, it comes down to reading what is a good delivery to bowl and what is a delivery to not bowl. T20 cricket is all about knowing which delivery not to bowl. I don’t like going in and hitting it right away. But with only 12 deliveries left, it helps if a few of us contribute 8 out of 2 points. But just getting 2 or 3 runs doesn’t help. I’m not a big fan of math. Even in school I wasn’t good at it. Thinking about the NRR doesn’t help. They just want to enjoy the IPL. When two other teams are playing, you don’t want to be under pressure and think. You just have to think about what to do in the next game. If we make the playoffs, great. But even if we don’t, it’s not the end of the world.
Devon Conway, man of the match: The thought process was just about keeping it simple. It was just about communicating with Ruturaj. I was just chatting with Hussey about what the surface would be like and who the bowlers would be aiming at. I’m just excited to form this partnership with Rutu and the way he plays makes my job easier. I have to be true to myself, authentic to myself. I try to play cricket batts and just judge where to put my foot. I have to give MS credit for trying to play the sweep in the last game and he told me to make sure to play straight.
