Gambhir: Containing CSK to 134 was a commendable job. We should have chased it down, but the batsmen got stuck in the middle overs. With the start we got, we should have finished the game. It is a difficult pill to swallow. We can't need too many at that stage of the innings, but Tendo tried hard. The bowlers have done a fantastic job to containing the opposition. One of the top 3 has to be there till the 15th over. We need batsmen getting 50s and 60s. We played too many dot balls and that is where we lost the match
