Presentation ceremony:

Gambhir: "Restricting the opposition to 128 was a fantastic effort. We are a very good fielding side as well. I still feel Balaji did a very good job, so did Binga.. overall everyone did a very good job. 150 was a good total, but we wanted to be positive when we started the chase. Points on the table is always very satisfying."

Jayawardene: "When we started batting, we realised it was a very slow wicket. We knew 145 would be a very good total, but we kept losing wickets, and Sunil bowled very well too. Quite happy with the way the boys played, it is a different combination for Delhi this season, it will take a while to get going."

Man of the Match is Sunil Narine: "It assists the spinners a lot, everyone played their part. Lit more turn and bounce than last year. I think I was on top of Russell today, but you never know what can happen."
