Ravindra Jadeja said after the match: “We started off very well; we felt we gave away 10-15 runs extra at the end. We did not execute our plans very well. He [Rayudu] was batting brilliantly, throughout but as I said earlier if we could've restricted them to under 175 it would've been good.”

The star all-rounder added, “We are not getting good starts in the first 6 overs, that's where we are lacking and hopefully we will come back stronger.”

Coming back to the match, PBKS posted 187/4 on the back of Shikhar Dhawan’s 88* and Bhanuka Rajapaksa's 42, while Dwayne Bravo (2/42) scalped most of the wickets for CSK. Chasing the total, Ambati Rayudu (78) and Ruturaj Gaikwad (30) could only manage to score runs against PBKS.
