Rising Pune Supergiant captain, Steven Smith: Its a hard one to swallow. Proud of the boys. A lot of credit should go to Mumbai as well. 130 was an under-par score, but they fought well. They bowled beautifully. I thought Johnson was magnificent. Bumrah and Malinga were very good as well. We had some wickets in hand and it was probably only one or two overs to get over the mark. But their bowlers did a terrific job to restrict this total. It is a great tournament and I have learned so much from it.
Mumbai Indians’ skipper, Rohit Sharma: To be honest, I was quite nervous but guys pulled off a great game. To be able to come out and defend 130 was a huge effort. I am very happy. Not much really, we never really needed to change our bowling plans. We bowled great variations. A lot of credit to the bowling unit. When you have bowlers like Bumrah and Malinga in the side, the belief is always there. Our spinners too, throughout the season, have been bowling well.
