Speaking at the presentation ceremony, he said, "It is always nice when you are winning and getting to the final, but it's a bit disappointing to lose in the final. It's a hard one to swallow. I am proud of the way the boys played throughout the season."
Commenting on the final match, he said, "A lot of credit should go to Mumbai as well. 130 was an under-par score, but they fought well. They bowled beautifully. I thought Johnson was magnificent. Bumrah and Malinga were very good as well. It's a wonderful tournament to be part of. I would like to thank the RPS team management."
