We executed the plans well: MS Dhoni
"It's always good to be on the winning side. We were a bit rusty in the first match, but the boys executed the plans well today to put up a big score," Dhoni said after his side's massive 74-run win over Deccan.
Dhoni said they were looking around the 160-run mark. "We were looking something around 150-160 to defend. We were not sure about the dew factor but still managed to get 190," he said.
Deccan skipper Cameron White praised Chennai's Ravindra Jadeja for his all-round performance. "Jadeja played really well. We are a young team and Chennai are an excellent side," he said.
Man-of-the-Match Jadeja, who scored a quick fire 29-ball 48 and then scalped five wickets for 16 runs, dedicated the performance to his family. "A fabulous performance by me. I would like to thank my mom and family, and I'm very happy that I had a good day," he said. "I was looking to rotate [the] trike and was waiting for the left-arm spinner [Ankit Sharma] to come in. And then I wanted to go for the big shots."
Asked about his superb show with the ball, he said, "In T20, a five-wicket haul is very good. I was trying to bowl stump to stump and wanted to restrict them."
