Post match presentation
Williamson speaking after the loss:
“Didn’t get off to the start we would have liked. Some good fighting with the bat at the end; some 25 or 30 short in the end. Bit of a shame, but at the same time, important we keep the attitude the boys showed last time… Been a tough campaign so far. At our best, we can beat anybody. They are an outstanding side and have a great balance. They put us under pressure, and that is what you expect. Things started to unfold for us… It wasn’t to be today. Delhi was fantastic… For us, it is focusing on our cricket and trying to improve.”
Dhawan has the orange cap:
“Enjoying wearing the cap and enjoying the batting… Not a very true surface, so plan according to it. I consciously made the effort to increase the tempo in the powerplay… I love to be an impactful player on my side. Rabada and Nortje are our fast guns. Rabada has been doing great… He just comes and gets the wickets. Nortje is maturing nicely… ”
Pant speaks after the win:
“Very happy with this performance. We had a good first phase… Happy to start this way. We want to focus on the process [is what Ponting says]. It was pretty good bowling… our bowlers did a pretty good job to restrict them. We have one of the quickest bowlers in the world. Pretty happy as the skipper…”
Nortje is the Player of the Match:
“Obviously missing out on the first half of the tournament… Personally, I wanted to bring the energy. Looking at the first game of the tournament, we decided it was nice to see some grass. Nice to have some sort of assistance, we didn’t have to do too much; just keep it simple. I don’t focus on that [getting the big wickets]…”
