Current partnership :
16 runs, 1.1 overs, RR: 13.71 (Mandeep Singh , Chris Woakes )

Over 20.0

Virat Kohli: We knew exactly where it went wrong. Having 70 in 10 overs, we were going good with the ball. But giving 140-odd in the last 10 is never a good sign. The wicket was slower than what we played like. We would have loved to have 20 runs lesser to chase. But then, I have never seen a game where four batsmen have got out to half-trackers. There is a lot of belief in the side, even when we needed 85 off the last 5 overs, we had belief. That mindset is important. We had 100 in 10 overs, we were confident and if we hadn't lost two wickets in six balls, things could have been different. No ifs or buts though. First game we were on track, we had our chances today as well. Too early (in the season) to make drastic changes though.

Man of the Match: Sanju Samson

Ajinkya Rahane: Feels good. We all know how dangerous RCB are. We were thinking of getting 160-170, wicket was a bit slow. But the way Sanju batted was incredible. It was all about getting that one big partnership. Knee is better. Slight niggle but will be fine. Shreyas bowled really well. We know when you score 200-plus, opponents will come hard. Sanju is a great talent, good to have him in our team. He's the future for India and we back him.
