I feel I need to spend more time and understand the conditions. Playing ODIs also helped me. It’s all about understanding your strengths and weaknesses. I should give this trophy to him Sandeep. He has that in his eyes, in his body language that you can trust that guy.”

Lucknow Super Giants Captain KL Rahul: “The target wasn’t a lot but we made a few mistakes. Good to see Mohsin back bowling well. Naveen has been crucial for us. We need to learn from our mistakes and find ways to win games. Langer has bought a lot of calmness to the group. We enjoy having him around.”
