Always a good feeling to contribute but the important thing is for the team to win. We had our chance to do that but couldn't get it done. That's the way it is. I don't keep track of figures or goals, my aim is to stick to the process.
Shreyas Iyer (KKR): Very pleased because after losing the last game by a big margin, feels good to come back and win by a big margin is nice. We had a nice start in the powerplay and Venky targeted bowlers well. Each and every player takes it well, and they have put in their best efforts. I'm not satisfied (totally) but want to maintain this.
Rohit Sharma (MI): I would take that total on that pitch. Was a great effort from the bowling unit, Bumrah was special. Disappointed the way we batted. Poor from the batters. It's been that kind of a season where both departments weren't consistent enough. It is something that we wanted to improve today but couldn't do it.

News coming from MI camp. Suryakumar Yadav has been ruled out of the remainder of IPL 2022 due to a muscle strain.
