Here’s What Rahul Tripathi And Ankit Bawne Said During Post-Match Presentation Ceremony

“I will give the credit to the Eagle Nashik Titans for their performance in the first innings. Then we had some good partnerships in the middle to chase down the target. Yogesh Dongare was exceptional during his stay on the crease. He kept on finding the boundaries to bring down the asking rate. Now we are in a good position. We want to keep improving from here and be the best team in the tournament. Will surely look forward to winning the tournament as well. The next match will again be a fresh start for the team,” said Rahul Tripathi, Kolhapur Tuskers captain.

“Our captain always boosted us and gave us freedom to play the fearless rand of cricket. Today it was all about striking the ball at a higher rate from ball 1 and I enjoyed batting today. I think Yogesh played a game changing knock as he was aggressive from the ball 1. Our owners and team staff backed us even after we lost 4 matches, they told us to belief in ourselves and said that no matter we win or lose they will be behind us,” said Ankit Bawne, who was awarded the Man of the Match award.
