Dwayne Bravo is the Man of the Match
MS Dhoni: I think they missed the competition. CSK-MI is one game that people wait to watch. We're coming back after two years, that's also the reason that people are eager to watch us in action. I'm a practical person, so I was hoping in the dressing room that the quantum of defeat wasn't too big. The way Bravo batted, it was really good to see him take the responsibility. Don't think we batted well as a team. But it's the first game, so we'll take the positives out of it.The kind of players we have got, our selection will be based on horses for courses. We'll have to keep an eye on lot of things.
Rohit Sharma: Feeling low at the moment, credit to Bravo, he played well, hit the right pockets, there was some dew and that didn't help us, but they played well. We need to improve our death bowling, we were in the game till the 17th over, the last three overs didn't go our way, dew isn't an excuse. We knew with 165 on the board, we needed to bowl very well, but I think we were 10-15 runs short. Bravo bowled very well in the end, we have got a great bunch of guys, we need to look into the positives and learn from it. Just the first game, it isn't the end of the world, we will need to learn from this.
