When Pant was called to the presentation ceremony after the match, the disappointment was evident on his face, he said, ‘I have no words at the moment, I can’t say anything right now. We just believed in ourselves, tried to stay in the match as long as we could. The bowlers almost pulled the match back. But it was unfortunate for us that we could not win the match.
Pant further said, ‘He bowled brilliantly in the middle overs, we were stuck and could not even rotate the strike. Delhi Capitals are known for positive play and we will come back strong next year. We played very good cricket, yes there have been some ups and downs, but we will be positive, we will be there for each other, take care of each other and come back better next season.
