We did every thing properly today. We bowled rather well, then clinical with the bat,” said Rohit throughout the post-match conference when requested to share his ideas following the comprehensive win.

DC skipper Shreyas Iyer admitted that his side finished “10-15 runs short”, highlighting the run-out of all-rounder Marcus Stoinis as a game-changer.  

“We were 10-15 short. 175 would have seemed fully different. We actually missed out when Stoinis obtained run out. That’s one thing we have to work on,” he stated.
