Present below are the excerpts from Suresh Raina's post match presentation ceremony interaction:
About the Victory
It was an important game for us, do or die I would say. Wicket was pretty good, and we really bowled well towards the end. We came back strongly. We kept losing wickets in the middle and I thought I had to stay till the end. Kept telling myself, look to be positive. No need to play cross-batted shots. It was a good team effort today. We got Uthappa at a crucial time. I was very calm at the wicket. I knew I had to stick till the end. Batting looks really good. We can improve our bowling. We've been giving a lot of runs in the first six overs. It's been good (his form). Been batting well and just need to continue with that.
On Gujarat Lions Bowling
Praveen Kumar bowled very well with back to back yorkers. Basil is a really good prospect, he's been very consistent with his yorkers. Faulkner also did well to get Gambhir. He was looking very good.
On Chasing the Target
I like to chase always. If you look at the last two years in the IPL, every team batting second has been in a very comfortable position.
