Jofra Archer, the IPL debutant, is the Man of the Match. Says: "It's good to be back in the park. We just wanted to restrict them. Stokesy and I had a chat, saying we had to pull things back. The chase was a bit nervy, but I knew with our dug-out talent we're gonna complete it easy. The heartbeat is still pumping."

Ajinkya Rahane, the winning captain: "Still can't believe what happened. The way KG and Sanju batted, wow, but credit to our bowlers to pull it back. I thought Mumbai would make 180-190, but still KG's knock was unbelievable. During the time-out, we wanted to take it deep, because we knew we had Jos, Ben, Klaasen. Rahul (Tripathi) batted well at the top last year, so we were just thinking about the combination. I think we'll continue with that. Archer's fantastic. Happy to see him back. The way he bowled in the middle-overs was incredible. Jofra can bowl 140+ and his accuracy was fantastic. He's always thinking about wickets and that's the way to go."
