After losing the match, Shreyas Iyer said, ‘We had a disappointing start, losing two wickets in the Powerplay, and it was hard to recover from that. They have amazing spinners. But we've had a great season. None of the batsmen took the initiative to take the team through and there wasn't a partnership building. Disappointing for us but good learning.” The Chennai Super Kings will take on Mumbai Indians on May 12, 2019, in the IPL 2019 finals.
