“I am very, very happy that I got to play for MI. I have been a huge fan of them. To get a cap from Sachin sir was something I never dreamt of. I got to interact with him, spent some time on the pitch, asked him about CCI and Brabourne’s pitch because I had not played a match here. He gave me a lot of inputs that really helped me,” Murugan Ashwin said after the match in an MI video.

Murugan also felt that only minor pulls were needed for Mumbai Indians to hit winning ways.

“As a bowling unit, we were looking very good out there. We need to address a few things like closing out the overs. We gave away a few more boundary balls than we’d have liked but we will regroup and come back stronger. I don’t think we succumbed to pressure, we have experienced bowlers, it’s just about finishing off games. We will come back,” said the 31-year-old leg-spinner.

Kuldeep registered figures of 3/18, and Murugan Ashwin felt they both did the same thing on the pitch.

“Both me and Kuldeep had a good game, wrist spinners, with our variations, we can do a lot off the wicket. Both of us hit the right lengths, bowled the right speeds, it’s a good wicket to bat and the lines were important, we had to be precise to put the batters on the backfoot and force them to do something,” said Murugan Ashwin in a post-match conference.

He also praised a good inning from Ishan Kishan. “Ishan was very good, he took it till the end, that was a good, responsible innings from him. He was batting well in the nets and practice games, so I’m happy for him,” said Murugan.

The 18th over proved vital as Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav smashed Daniel Sams for 24 runs which included three mammoth sixes as Delhi ended any hope of Mumbai. In the second ball of the penultimate over Patel smashed Jasprit Bumrah to four and Capitals took the honours and grabbed all the points.
