Ravichandran Ashwin | Player of the Match: Feels like a million dollars. It was important that we won the game tonight. That's quite a good finish to the round games. The communication was pretty clear before the tournament. I had to work on a lot of stuff. The team management was clear with my poisition. I know what my role is. I have to make the batsmen take risks. I have always believed I understand the game well. I am quite innovative, they have understood me well. I want to play my A game. I am glad to make to the playoffs and super pleased. I just brought out the David Warner inside me.
Sanju Samson | RR skipper: Feels really good, it has been standout. Almost everyone has stood out for us. It was important to undertand they have quality batters. I didn't expect to comeback so strong so well. It was a great effort. I wanted to bring him after the powerplay, he also had really great change ups. Cricket is a funny game. They had quality bowlers, but Ashwin has done a great job for us, he has turned out to be a great all-rounder for us.
MS Dhoni | CSK skipper: I think what we need to understand is that we were playing a batter light. So when we lost those wickets, Moeen had to curb himself a bit. Role and responsibility got swapped a bit when the wickets fell. If we had lost another wicket at that point, we wouldn't have even got anything to defend. I'd say 10-15 runs short although the start is always crucial. If you don't start well, even 180 may not be enough. Overall, I'd say 15 runs short. I think the important factor is that he (Mukesh) is keen to learn quickly and after every game, he wants to improve. That's what is needed for youngsters. Next season, it shouldn't be like they are starting from scratch. Our Malinga (Pathirana) is difficult to pick, and he'll only surely contribute for us next year. We have done well in patches. Important thing is to do well as a team. Crucial thing is to make the most of an opportunity if you are a bowler or a batter. It's not a one-year tournament, you keep coming back year after year. Key is to keep going as a player for the next 10-12 years.
