Gautam Gambhir said after the match that Russell was out on the score of 150. In such a situation, we felt that we can win the match by 40-50 runs. This was necessary for us, because our net run rate is still less than Rajasthan. But the way Rinku Singh and Sunil Narine batted. After that it seemed that we should just win the match. He defended KL Rahul’s decision to give the last over to Stoinis, as off-spinner Krishnappa Gautam had 2 overs left and both the left-handers were at the crease.
