He said, “He bowled well and in the last five overs we were left behind by 20 runs.” Kohli said that by winning the last 2 matches, his team can make a place in the top 2. He said, ‘Some teams do their best to hurry, and some play poorly at the wrong time. Looking at the point table, the lower half teams are doing quite well. We have 2 more matches to play and by winning both we can stay in the top 2.
Mumbai captain Kirron Pollard praised Suryakumar Yadav, who scored an unbeaten 79, saying, ‘Whatever the circumstances, he has done well again and again. He will be very sad to not be selected in the Indian team but I think he is very close to the selection. I am looking at things from outside. He has done brilliantly for our team and he can consistently answer only with his bat. Hopefully, he will be the architect of our title win.
