Dhoni: CSK v Mumbai is one diversion everybody needs to watch and we are returning following two years. By and large, the onlookers have been great. The way Bravo batted it was better than average to see him assume the liability. We could have batted better. I would remove a lot of positives from the amusement. The blend of players we have will be more steeds for courses. We should watch out for damage inclined players. I feel keeping things straightforward is imperative.
Bravo, Man of the Match: It was a great victory and we devote it to the CSK fans. CSK demonstrated a great deal of confidence in me. I came in right on time and I gave myself my best chance to bat. I gave personal time to get myself set. It is a little outfield and I am back my abilities and I am only content with my exertion today around evening time.
Kedar Jadhav: I am glad mentally, yet physically I am harmed. I won’t play for the following couple of weeks. Bravo gave us the open door for us to give a shot at it. I couldn’t run and I disclosed to Emmy [Imran Tahir] I will take each of the six balls. With six balls and seven runs, they were knocking down some pins same lengths and I simply required a major hit. I needed to perceive how my body was responding.
