Speaking after the match, Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma said that there were some tense moments when the Mumbai Indians batsmen were batting but they were calm enough to get the job done. He said:

“We have played a lot of cricket here. We have pitches like these. Sometimes it’s good to bring bowlers into the game. It has been batting friendly everywhere, nice to see bounce and swing from both sides which was good to watch.

Rohit Sharma further said that they are keeping an eye on the future post their exit from the tournament and there are some players they will try to include in the playing XI in the next few matches. He said:

Rohit Sharma signed on, praising young Tilak Verma and premier pacer Jasprit Bumrah. He also talked about Kieron Pollard’s reaction when the West Indies legend was told that Tristan Stubbs would be included in the playing XI in his place. He elaborated:

“He (Tilak) has been brilliant, playing the first year, it is never easy to have such a calm mind. I think he is going to be an all-format player for India very soon. He has technique and flair. And there’s hunger too.”

“(On Bumrah) he knows what he needs to do and what the team expects him to do. He understands, splendid magic unfolds. (On Pollard) He’s been a legend, he came out and said he was okay with it.
