Andre Russell is Man of the Match
Gambhir (KKR): The way Russell started, a lot of credit to the bowlers for restricting them to 98. We weren't sure as to what will be a good total so decided to bowl first. It's a small ground here making it easier to chase. I thought that someone had to bat through which is what professional teams do. Robin batted unbelievably, some of the shots were unbelievable. I have been playing after a long time, so I'm happy to get some runs under the bag. We have all bases covered so it doesn't matter what we get [in terms of pitches]. Lots of people say that we ask for specific track but that's not true."
Zaheer (DD): You learn everyday. I was trying to swing it too much. Playing a game after a long time. Happy with how the fast bowlers put their hand up. IPL is such a long tournament, every team is going to have one bad game. And this was our first and last bad game and it's out of the way. We are giving them freedom. T20 is such a fast game, we want the intensity. Everyone works on their game. 120 could have been close on this track. This team is all about letting them express themselves on the field freely.
