However, Mumbai Indians didn’t win the match. After the defeat, Rohit Sharma said, “Till about the second last over I thought we had it. Unfortunate runout there of Tim David. We thought we were very much in the game till that runout.You would back yourself to get even 19 off the final over. Credit to Sunrisers, they held their nerve pretty well at the back end. We wanted to try a few things keeping one eye on the future. We wanted certain guys to bowl under pressure in certain situations of the game but I thought they batted pretty well to get 193. The way we pulled things back at the end was very good. We weren’t consistent up front with the ball. We came pretty close with the bat but couldn’t finish off. Feels good (to get his highest score on the score). For us it is simple (for the last game). Just want to tick off the boxes and finish off on a high note. We will try everything we can from our side. If there is an opportunity to try out new guys we will definitely look to do that as well.”
