Kane Williamson, the losing captain:
When someone exceeds 200, it will always be a challenge to pursue them. I thought we reacted well, but they kept us under pressure with the total they had. We showed a lot of fighting spirit and sometimes got unlucky with some things that didn’t work out for us. It was a little slower (in the field), we tried our best, but losing Washy (Sundar) for most of the bowling innings was a struggle for us. Still, we can come back to the game with a lot of positives, we ran into some quality spinners, at the end of the day we showed a lot of fight. We just have to stay connected, we’re playing well, and we did in the first half of the tournament (talking about 5 straight wins). We just need to touch on a few things, train well and come back stronger in the next game.
MS Dhoni, the winning captain:
I think it was a good score to defend. It’s one of those coincidences where we got off to a great start and forced the bowlers to bowl in the areas we wanted to hit. The type of lens we got was very good. The phase that really worked for us was when the spinners played after 6 overs. We had quite a few good batting performances, we gave away a few overs that went 25-26 runs, and even when you score 200 it really comes down to 175-180 in 19 overs. It is important to try something different as a bowler. I’ve always told my bowlers that you might get hit for 4 sixes in an over, but the 2 balls you save – ultimately in a high score game – are the 2 deliveries that will help you win the part. Because a lot of bowlers, after getting 3 or 4 sixes they will be like let’s end it but that limit or even instead of six if you get hit for 2 fours which will help you in a game. I don’t know if they believe in this theory, but it really works. Between me and Jadeja, he knew last season that he would have a chance to be captain this year. He knew and had enough time to prepare, what’s important is that you wanted him to lead the team and I wanted that transition to happen. In the first 2 games there was information towards Jaddu and after that I left it up to him to decide which angle to play and all that. At the end of the season, you don’t want it to feel like the captain was made by someone else and I’m just going for the draw. So it was a gradual transition. Spoon feeding doesn’t really help the captain, on the field you have to make those crucial decisions and you have to take responsibility for those decisions.
Ruturaj Gaikwad, player of the match:
I felt good and he came in a winning way, this shot is more special. There will be times when you will get one or two good deliveries and you will be unlucky here and there with the kind of support staff you have and all the people around you have that support and that trust with you . Personally, I don’t like to believe in form, no matter what you scored in the last game, you have to start from scratch. I think you have to start from scratch every game and that’s what helped. I like to play faster because it brings out the best in me. There aren’t many bowlers that bowl that fast and that short, so whenever they bowl short in the first balls, I obviously have the upper hand in the last balls. Lots of thought processes in it. I was telling him (Conway) to take his time. I played here because it’s my home, I know this ticket office and I was just chatting with him to continue.
