We did very well in some matches, even in the matches we lost, we did very well. We are working hard to get back in every match and winning this match helps you. Batting in the first six overs was very important after 20 overs wicketkeeping. We knew the pitch would be slow and they had spinners, so Mayank and I gave the team a great start. If Chris Gayle plays against the spinners I think he will play big shots against the spinners. ‘

Rahul said, ‘Chris’ return has helped us, he is an experienced cricketer and he knows how to get the team out of difficult times. Neither team prepares for the Super Over. You have to trust your own bowling group, you have to rely on their instincts.

We still think about one match at a time, when you don’t win more than the first seven matches, every win looks great. ‘
