“Today, we never gave up. Yes, we made mistakes but we just keep coming back, that’s important. That is the culture you need to create and throughout the season everyone has put their hand up,” Jayawardene said.
“Yes, we don’t have a purple cap, we don’t have an orange cap but who cares, we got this,” the former Sri Lanka captain said as cheers erupted inside the dressing room.
Rohit Sharma later talked about the final over and how the team depended on team performance rather than individual performance.
“The moment umpire raised his hand, I just ran. It was just a great moment. In the last few overs, we gather and decide collectively as to what we need to do as a team at that particular time. Few of the senior guys in the squad, we always get together between the overs and talk about what we should be doing in the next few overs.
“That’s always been the trend at MI. I’ve been talking through the tournament, we don’t rely on one individual, it’s a collective effort through the tournament that we’ve had and even the decision making, it’s all collective,” he added.
