Q: What do you have to say about the win today?

Srinivas Reddy: I would like to congratulate the team because they played really well. They’ve been giving consistent performances all throughout the home leg. We made some mistakes against Gujarat Fortunegiants but, overall, our performances have been really good. Every day is a fresh start for our team. Winning and losing is part and parcel of the game. The boys have to focus on our future matches. If they play well, they are making a name for themselves and are the first beneficiaries of that.

Q: You received good backup in the raiding department. Who would you like to credit for the win?

Deepak Niwas Hooda: I would like to thank both -Selvamani K. and Ajinkya Pawar - for their support in the raiding department. I got out a few times in the first half and they covered up pretty well. They got points at crucial moments. In defence, the players were all very good as well - especially Sunil Siddhgavali. He was very well supported by Sandeep Dhull and Santhapanaselvam. The team controlled the game very well despite me sitting out for quite a while.
