“It was a difficult time because I was injured, playing after a year. My father was discharged from intensive care yesterday and has been in hospital for the last 10 days and I did it for him, he would have been watching,” she told the presentation.
“I am thankful to the team and support staff, Gautam (Gambhir) sir, Vijay (Dahiya) sir for playing me this game even though I did not do well in the last game”.
Speaking about his plan in the finale, Khan said, “The plan was to execute what I basically did. Krunal was also talking to me and I told him the same thing.
“The run up is the same, it hasn’t changed in the last over. I was trying to calm down, not look at the board and bowl the 6 balls right.
“As the wicket was taking I tried the ball slower but bowled two and then moved on to the yorker and he too was reversing.”

Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma said his team failed to win the small moments and got lost in the second half of the chase.
“We didn’t play well enough to win the match. Unfortunately there were small moments in the match where we didn’t win.
“We rated the pitch very highly and it was a good pitch to bat at and that score was definitely chaseable and we got lost in the bottom half of the inning.”

With Marcus Stoinis (89 off 47 balls) in the song, Mumbai dropped 54 runs in the last three overs.
“We gave too many runs in defense and the last three overs went for short. But the way we started with the bat we were in a good position to chase but as I said we lost our way in the second half.


“He (Stoinis) played really well, he kept shooting straight, which you have to do on a pitch like this. It was a fantastic shot from him.”
