The KKR batsman, who broke Delhi Capitals' dream of winning the IPL title for the first time, said after the match, it is a wonderful feeling.

Rahul said, 'Looks great. Victory was very important for the team. One or two overs were very difficult for us and never thought the match would get so stretched. Glad that we finally won the match. Kagiso Rabada did a really good 18th over, but I knew it was just a matter of connecting with the ball and bat once for me. The ball was staying down and it was getting a bit difficult to shoot.

Rahul said, 'I believed in myself and I knew that it was just a matter of hitting a ball in the middle of the bat. After the first phase, the journey in the second phase was memorable for us. KKR won the toss and invited Delhi Capitals to bat. Delhi Capitals scored 135 for five in 20 overs. Chasing a target of 136, KKR made 125 for two in 16.3 overs, but Delhi Capitals made a strong comeback in the match as soon as the wicket of Shubman Gill fell. Four batsmen were dismissed for zero in a row. In the end, Rahul Tripathi gave the team victory with a six.
