Murali Vijay: Definitely as a group we were playing good cricket. The wicket was on the slower side. Every body was throwing himself out. 140 was a defendable total here, we saw that in the last game. Myself and Saha were talking about that. You never know this game. Hopefully we can do that in remaining games.
Rohit Sharama:I thought wicket was not easy. It was sticky, it was not coming onto the bat. Having said, we should have applied ourselves. 124 was not going to be easy to defend. Lot of credits to Kings XI, they stuck to their plans. See, too much talking does not help. Players do understand what needs to be done. We have played two games here, we know the conditions. We know it is not a hig scoring ground. SRH defended 136 here. I guess 140 is a good score here. We were in a similar situation last year also.Hopefully, we will regroup from here and put up a performance day after tomorrow
