Bumrah | Player of the Match: Nothing special, just tried to have fun, and enjoyed my game. Very happy with how the last game went. The wicket is quite fast here, there's pace and bounce. But this was slow, and the bounce was low. There wasn't much swing, so we assessed the conditions and tried to execute our plans. Whenever you are new to the game, so you need to learn a lot. I try to help the youngsters as much as I can. We tried to help them as much as we can, so that it's a good atmosphere (in the dressing room). Improving your game is a yearly process, it doesn't stop. We need to analyse next year and come back strong. I was very happy with my rhythm, was happy with the execution. After the ball is released from my hand, I can't do much. I just tried to keep things simple, and execute as much as I could.
Rohit Sharma | MI captain: We were here to win the game. I know few teams were watching us closely, but we wanted to finish on a high. We'll try to correct the mistakes next season. It was tough after losing eight games, so we needed to rectify the mistakes. But I think we performed well in the second half of the season. When they got to 160 I was nervous, because it was a sluggish pitch. It wasn't come on to the bat nicely. I thought if you restrict a team to 150-160, it was about getting one good partnership. We didn't get off to a good start, but that partnership put us in a good position. There are a lot of things, I have been talking about it, it's the collective performance that get you through. When the bowlers did well, the batters didn't. And when the batters performed well, the bowlers didn't. We came to the party a bit too late, but at least we can take a few positives from this tournament. Everytime we go into the auction, we keep an eye on the players who will play for us in a couple of cycles. We get a few youngsters who will eventually go on and play for their country. Congrats to them, they have qualified, I would like to wish all the four teams all the best. May the best team win.
Rishabh Pant | DC captain: For most of the game we were on top. On occasions, we let the game slip away from our grabs when we were on top. That's what we were doing throughout the season. Not good enough to win this match I guess. It's not about pressure. We could have done better execution and planning. Learn from mistakes and come back stronger next year. We were 5-7 runs short but we bowled really well. We bowled well throughout the tournament, but dew came in towards the end and we didn't bowl to our plans. It's hard but we got to take it on our chin and learn from it. I thought there was something (about not reviewing Tim David caught behind). Everyone standing in the circle wasn't convinced and at the end I didn't go up. We were discussing (with Ponting) that we will tell bowlers to keep it simple. Just keep doing what is working for us and keep believing.
