“There was dew and the ball started coming in nicely, still you need to bat well and that is what he did. A perfect start in a long chase where he led the game in PP. I think it was stalling initially, which we saw with their wrist spinners. As the innings progressed, it started coming in nicely, Rutu’s innings was brilliant,” he said.

Talking about Ruturaj Gaikwad’s innings, Dhoni said, “When you lose the game, it may come under the carpet, but he batted very well to take us to 190. Batsmen need to quickly assess what constitutes a good score. In T20s, you work hard and then realize it is not 160-180 wickets. They’ve done it well, rated really well.”

Dwayne Bravo and Deepak Chahar missed the match against Royals and talking about their absence, Dhoni said, “Dwayne and Deepak are not here, of course, I missed them. Both are quite experienced. Once upon a time If you start chasing the bowlers, it pays off. We could have used the dimensions of the field better. Let’s forget, you can go through this in a tournament like this, know what we could have done. That’s it. It could be in the knockouts as well, we have done well learning from every match. It doesn’t look like we could have scored more than 190.

Earlier, the 24-year-old Gaikwad slammed his maiden IPL century in the match in the most thrilling manner, scoring maximum runs off the last ball of the innings. He completed his century in just 60 balls hitting five sixes and nine fours. However, Royals were able to chase down the target of 190 with 15 balls to spare, thanks to Yashasvi Jaiswal’s scintillating 21-ball 50 in the top-order, which set the pace for the chase. .
