11.18 pm So Pooran replaces the injured Tripathi in the 14th over and stays to the end to clinch victory. Captain Williamson gets a half-century in victory too.
Titans captain Hardik Pandya: “Batting wise I think we were 7-10 runs short and would’ve made a difference in the end. Bowling wise, we had a good start but had two bad overs. I think they bowled well [in the last 5 overs]. The bounce was varying about and their bowlers with different heights. Credit to them with the way they bowled. Our motto has been the same which is to learn from the mistakes we make no matter the result. In a couple of days we have our next game. Relax and enjoy the game.”
Nicholas Pooran from Sunrisers: “We as a batting group wanted to learn from our mistakes in the past and make partnerships. It was challenging because it was two-paced. The slower balls were sticking in the wicket a bit. We just needed a partnership, not do anything stupid and be there at the end. I try to improve every single day that I train and play. We have some amazing coaches that sit with us and have some amazing conversations. Brian is helping us tremendously, not just me but all the young batters. The first over [in the field] went wrong for us, but having saying that with the dropped catches and extras, 160 on that wicket was fabulous for the bowlers.”
Kane Williamson is named Player of the Match:
