"Feels really good, a hard-fought effort in the bowling department, the planning was there and the execution was also there. It was a terrific knock, leading from the front and got us to a respectable total, so all credit goes to him (KL Rahul). I had no idea about how the wicket was going, when we batted KL was mentioning that the wicket was stopping a bit so we tried to bowl slower and ball that hard length for the new batters," said Krunal Pandya in a post-match presentation. Earlier in the first innings of the game, Kieron Pollard had dismissed Krunal and the left-hander just managed one run. However, Krunal ended up dismissing the MI all-rounder after scoring 19 runs.

Mohsin is a bright prospect, he has pace and variations and for him, the first game like this will boost his confidence. I was so thankful that I got his (Pollard) wicket otherwise he would have eaten my brain throughout my life because he got me out and now that it's 1-1 at least he will speak less. Honesty is important in the team and these guys (coaching staff) are doing pretty well and ensuring everyone is getting better. For me process is important and we want to accept our mistakes and learn from it," he added.
