Ravi Ashwin, Man of the Match and the winning skipper: Very important to get that 10-point mark and I guess it's the right time in the tournament to do that. Its very tough to defend here, the wicket generally gets better in the second half. We probably thought we were 10-15 runs short on this pitch and I thought Akshdeep bowled really well in the first few overs. We had some plans for Jos and he really executed well. Mujeed also I thought was brilliant, he went for a few runs but we got the wicket up front. He (Akshdeep) can actually swing the ball both ways and for a left-hander to swing both ways is a massive advantage in the front six as we have seen with Deepak Chahar in the CSK. We are looking forward to Akshdeep doing some great things in the tournament. For me, it's about getting various lengths with different speeds and trying to get the batsman with under cutter and reverse carom. I worked on a lot of things despite people actually calling me for trying too many things I kept on going

Ajinkya Rahane RR captain: 182 on that wicket was quite chaseable. We started well. Just a matter of two sixes. A game like this, you can't criticise too much. Our bowlers bowled well. In a chase like this, you can't lose too many wickets in a bunch. Discussion between me and Stuart was take it deep. Tripathi started really well. Should learn from our mistakes. These things happen in T20 cricket. Our two legspinners in the middle overs were brilliant. Jofra's four overs were critical.
