Dinda said, "Very happy with my performance, we won the match. Just wanted to bowl wicket to wicket and swing the ball. We gave 200 percent effort today and everyone fielded well."

Dhoni said, "The fast bowlers bowled well and gave a platform to the spinners to put pressure on the batsmen, something we have lacked in the past. There's no point taking any extra pressure, you want to bowl according to your strengths. It took us a while to decide who our best bowlers would be, it bodes well for the next season. The next game, we want to give a chance to players like Chahar."
...
Zaheer said, "We just have to turn up in the next game and go for it. It's simplified for us, we need 2 wins in 2. I felt today that a couple of decisions didn't go our way. A few changes were forced, a few were strategic. You just try to judge the situation and go for it."

What a game. It never really got going as Delhi stuttered to 121/6 in their 20 overs. It was a strange performance from Delhi given the importance of the game. It was only Chris Morris who added any impetus whatsoever with a late surge. Karun Nair had earlier stitched the innings together well. Chasing 122, Pune took it easily getting off to a breezy start courtesy Khawaja. Rahane, as usual, was great with a well constructed 36 ball 42. So Pune has dented Delhi's playoff hopes. They still have a chance to qualify. They would have to depend on other results as well though.
