Man Of The Match
Ishan Kishan: I think I had a chat with Rohit. He said just back yourself and play your natural game. My plan was to see the ball till the last moment and smack them. Win was important for us, point was to stay there, back yourself and put up a good show. I think I am okay with batting anywhere.
