Chris Gayle - I am happy to play my part

It had been kind of type of reality look for Dwayne Cruz. The hero in the last match dropped countryman Chris Gayle’s catch when Royal Competitors Bangalore’s score was 34 without reduction in 5.2 overs. Gayle was batting on 21.

The issue most likely cost Mumbai the match because the West Indian batsman continued proceeded to get another 61 runs and required his side home.

No surprise that Harbhajan Singh stated in the publish match presentation ceremony when they might took Gayle's catch, the end result may have been different.

Listed here are excerpts

Virat Kohli: It absolutely was large game for all of us. Playing Mumbai Indians in Mumbai is definitely a pressure game. They're an excellent side. Clearly, it feels great to conquer them in your own home. I believe we've the best type of momentum opting for us. Hopefully, we are able to continue this momentum within the coming matches.

I had been feeling fantastic after i was batting. I had been middling the balls. I wasn’t playing too well in the earlier matches. My teammates continued saying that you'll hit form in the proper time. Hopefully I'm able to continue this type. I believe we're peaking in the proper time. The bowlers really stored it tight. Vinay Kumar and Harshal Patel bowled superbly. Muralidharan is definitely a category act and Zaheer Khan only gave four runs per over.

Harbhajan Singh: To tell the truth, we're not too disappointed. We have four games to visit. I believe Royal Competitors Bangalore performed a lot better than we did.

It had been an essential toss, which Royal Competitors Bangalore won. Their bowlers utilized the circumstances very well and bowled based on their plans. I believe i was about 15-20 runs short. Still, we ought to have given them a difficult fight. But we're able to not set up a great show. I was sloppy within our fielding. I believe when we might have taken Chris Gayle’s catch, the end result may have been different.

Chris Gayle: I'm creating a room for trophies! It's crunch time now. It had been an essential win today. I figured the bowlers had put us inside a good position by restricting Mumbai to 140-odd runs. Then (Tillekaratne) Dilshan and that i gave an excellent start towards the team. After Dilshan got out, Virat arrived and performed very well. It had been a great team effort today. I'm pleased to play my part.

The important thing ended up being to see from the new ball. Searching in the first innings, we realized the new ball was doing a little. We understood we needed to see off Lasith Malinga. I was expecting two overs in advance from him but he bowled three. As we saw him off, the job grew to become easy. It had been a great wicket to softball bat on. The ball was coming onto the softball bat and that i could play my strokes.
