Williamson, SRH captain: It was a great fighting effort from the lads, game ebbed and flowed. Kolkata are an outstanding side. Game could have gone either way. Credit to the way the boys finished off the first innings to get a competitive total. Game was slipping away a bit at the start, but we knew if we held firm, we could squeeze back in the middle. He (Rashid) was brilliant but he’s got another game, so we’re going to keep him wrapped up. He’s had a great season for us. Important we move on and focus on the final. As a team we fight to the very last ball and we showed that again today. Someone like Rashid is the perfect example. Outstanding talent, but he has a great attitude. Real team effort. That’s the attitude we want to see from the Sunrisers outfit. He was certainly the MoM and he was brilliant, but a number of guys chipped in. The thing we didn’t change was our balance. We had injuries obviously, Saha was injured. He came back in, was nice to have his experience. Goswami contributed well, but that was the big thing for us to have that experience in the final. There were a couple of other changes, and that’s the way it goes. Everyone of those guys have played a big part, whether contributing on the field or off the field. It’s been a huge collective effort, but we still have another game of cricket left. They’ve been playing good cricket (CSK), and they certainly deserve to be in the final. It’s a great occasion, something that the guys will be looking forward to. It is about focussing on the next match now, one which the guys are excited for.
