With MI needing 15.63 runs per over from the last 8 overs, Kieron Pollard took responsibility on his strong shoulders and smashed six fours and eight sixes to help his team to defeat their arch-rivals.

Later, after the match, during the post-match presentation, Rohit Sharma hailed the encounter between the two teams as one of the best t20 games that he has ever been a part of. He also showered praises on Kieron Pollard for his powerful performance. He said:

Probably one of the best T20 games that I’ve been part of. One of the best innings also you can say from Polly. I know it’s always tough for the bowlers on a good pitch and smaller ground. We wanted to stay positive once we finished [bowling our] 20 overs. We got a good start and saw what happened,” 

He added:

”We backed Krunal [at No.4] and he’s coming off good form in domestic cricket. A left-hander always makes a difference even though they [CSK] have an offspinner. It suits our style of play and yes the bowlers will be under pressure, but that’s where you back the bowlers,”
