Chennai Super Kings – 178/4(20.0 ov)
Gaikwad is Man of the Match
Gaikwad: It feels good. Very confident. Thankfully both knocks came in winning results. Confidence was there. I backed myself. When I got out, situations were difficult. I knew I will take my time. It was a matter of time as confidence was always there. COVID has made me tough. Our captain always face every situation with a smile. It was difficult but I was trying. I do work hard and I have six-pack abs.
MS Dhoni: “It was one game where the climax went in our favour. A lot of credit to the boys. This season, he (Jadeja) has been fantastic. He has looked to score every way. Ruturaj has shown the talent that he is. He came in and got positive with COVID. We didn’t have much time to have a look at him. I think it is very exciting how he has grabbed his chances.”
“I think we played really well there. Our bowlers absolutely gave their everything. We have one game left, and still have a very little chance. We felt we were right in the game. Looking forward to the next game against Royals.”
