...
David Warner collects the winning cheque: "It is a fantastic team achievement. I was happy that I led by example with the runs. They have a phenomenal squad. Look at the way Virat Kohli led from the front. The boys batted, bowled and fielded well. We were true underdogs. The boys batted, bowled and fielded well. And off the field, the support staff, the marketing team, everyone deserves credit. "
...
Virat Kohli: "This is for the people of Bangalore. Gutted for them, we did not win it for them. I think the wicket was nice and one partnership would have been better. AB and I got out together, it set us back. I felt I was under control. Would like to congratulate Sunrisers."
...

...
Virat Kohli with the ORANGE CAP. 973 runs this season. The crowd cheer him on: ""It's a nice incentive for the way we've got about this season, but not that nice to be standing on the other side of the result. The reason why SRH won was because they had a strong bowling attack. Previous 770 odd was thought to be massive. We have to consider that I opened the batting and someone batting at No. 3 or down the order would not have had that much opportunities to score big."
...
Suresh Raina wins the CATCH OF THE SEASON OF THE AWARD.
...
Virat Kohli gets an award for scoring the most number of sixes (38) in the season.

Ben Cutting is the MAN OF THE MATCH: "It was exciting to play in front​ if this crowd. IT was set up by David Warner. Good to hit a few in the middle of the bat. Bhuvi and Fizz finished off well in the end."
...
Time for the presentation.
...
Yuvraj Singh: "It's great. Had the World Cup and now have the IPL trophy too. Gayle was going strong but a few wickets let us in. Great finish by Bhuvneshwar in the end. I am happy with the win and as long as the trophy comes, it's good. Great team effort from the boys."
...
Shikhar Dhawan: "A great season for me and for the team. Davy lead us from the front, hats off to him. Great support from the support staff and all the players. I think our team is quite balanced. We did not start well, but managed to gain momentum through the journey."
...
"I had to keep myself composed. I knew if I get it right, it will be difficult to score runs. Yorkers are the best way to stop runs," says Bhuvneshwar Kumar who bowled beautifully at the death.
...
The SRH players are out there in a huddle, jumping and singing in jubilation. Some celebration there at the Chinnaswamy.
...
The RCB team is doing a walk of appreciation around the Chinnaswamy stadium, thanking the fans for their support.
...
The Orange Army has invaded the field. The SRH camp is ecstatic. It's all gloomy in the RCB camp, though. The Sunrisers are pumping and jumping out there in the middle, while Baby was almost into tears before the last ball was bowled. Warner has been absolutely phenomenal in the tournament and he is visibly on the moon, Hugs and handshakes all around. For those who are heartbroken for Virat Kohli, here is a reminder: YUVRAJ has WON the IPL for the FIRST time!
...
So the Sunrisers Hyderabad are the new champions of the Indian Premier League. David Warner is pumped and Virat Kohli is disconsolate. The IPL has given us new heroes, and this time it is for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. They have fought back with some aplomb.
...
For SRH, it was a day to remember for Ben Cutting and after his heroics with the bat he snuffed out two wickets and kept things quiet. And then it was all going to be tough against Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mustafizur Rahman at the death.
...
The best bowling side in the tournament kept their calm and kept dealing crucial blows at the right time. The chase derailed after Virat Kohli was dismissed
...
Both got to whirlwind half-centuries but got out at crucial moments. For once AB de Villiers did not contribute enough and was dismissed cheaply. Rahul and Shane Watson too did not anything substantial.
