We should chase down 118 on any wicket, we didn’t show character, the Sunrisers did. Very happy with the way we bowled, they did a brilliant job, but the batsmen let us down once again. There are so many points that I can talk about, but don’t want to pinpoint faults now. We needed to show some intent, which we failed today. We knew it was a tough chase, shot making wasn’t easy, we wanted to have intent at the start. They bowled at the right areas, kept us guessing and we couldn’t recover. Few of us played some bad shots, including myself,” he said.

Siddarth Kaul’s spell certainly changed the course of the match as the right-hander scalped a three-for in Mumbai. Rashid Khan who adjudged man of the match for his figures of 2/11 in 4 overs.
