“We wanted to put runs on the board, the pitch played good for all 40 overs and runs on the board is crucial and I knew that we didn't get the score we wanted but we knew if we get early wickets we can put the pressure on their middle order. Manish batted really well and he played some excellent shots but I think the game-changing moment was the eight overs of spin. They bowled very well and contained the batsmen which was very important at that stage,” the MI skipper added.
