RR vs KKR IPL Highlights 2023 – May 11

Nitish Rana: Jaiswal’s innings was praiseworthy. Today was one of those days in life where nothing I thought 180 was par. We made a lot of mistakes with the bat and it’s the reason for losing out on two points. I bowled first because I thought I could gamble as a part-timer and get the in-form Jaiswal out but it was his day.

Sanju Samson: I didn’t have to do anything, just rotate strike and watch. He loves the powerplay and happy that he’s played so well. It’s time to give Chahal the legend tag. Very grateful to have him. You just need to give him the ball without saying anything and has introduced the concept of leggies bowling at the death. We have two more quarter-finals to play. But the pressure is never off, each and every game is important. Intensity is high. You know when Jos Buttler throws away a wicket for Jaiswal, how good the environment is.

Yashasvi Jaiswal, POTM: I always have it in my heart to go out and do well. Nice feeling that we have won. It’s not like everything happened right but I try. Process is very important, what I’m telling myself is as well. The shot which I won is what’s most pleasing because I’m learning to play till the end and win it for the team. That’s more important. I’m blessed, grateful and trying my best. I just wanted to make the NRR higher and not thinking about hundred. It happens, no one does it purposely. Sanju bhai said don’t worry, keep going. Blessed to play with all the great players, IPL is a great platform for youngsters and play with greats.
