Current partnership :
31 runs, 1.5 overs, RR: 16.91 (MS Dhoni , DJ Bravo )
MS Dhoni: I thought when we had the innings this was difficult to chase because when I was keeping, AB batted well and it was tough to score. The key for us was the two left-handers but we lost them early. This was a slightly slowish wicket and that's why AB's knock was special. It wasn't an easy wicket, credit to him. Happy that people are chipping in for us. Shardul will get better. The more he is under pressure, the better he will get. You may win or lose, but if you do the process right, you are on the right track.The finisher can score runs, but if he can help the other batsman with what to play, run quicker between the wickets etc with the experience I have, that is what you want from a finisher. Rayudu's knock was crucial.
Man of the Match: MS Dhoni
Virat Kohli: Many things that we can look at. The way we bowled is just no acceptable. 72/4 and giving away runs like that. Something that we need to address going forward. If we cannot defend 200, not a good sign. Tough pill for us to swallow. You have to back the guys who are on the park and need to give them confidence. They need to be clear in their plans and execute well. We weren't brave enough with the ball, somewhere there was that fear of the opposition overcoming them. Pitch has played really well, we are happy with that. Spin came as a factor, both for us and for them. But quality batting from both sides. (On Rayudu's being another of the young batting talents) He is not young, has been around for ever. Quality player and we all know that. Has done well in the IPL and domestic, also has done well for India too. Deserves the applause. (On MSD) Nice to see him strike the ball well, not against us though. We wouldn't have wanted that. He is in a good space, batting higher up and expressing himself.
