After Rajasthan Royals' massive win over Kolkata Knight Riders, KKR captain Nitish Rana had a brazen reply as he was asked about his team's performance. In the post-match interview, Rana started off by praising Yashasvi Jaiswal's stunning knock. 

Then Rana was asked about bowling the first over to which he replied stating that he doesn't care about what the world thinks about his decision. He was quoted saying, "Mujhe koi farak nahi padta duniya kya sochti hai."

In the interview, Nitish Rana said, "You have to praise his innings (on Jaiswal), it was a day when he could do anything he wanted. It was a 180 wicket as I said at the toss, our batting wasn't great and that's the result of us dropping 2 points. He was batting well right through the tournament, so I thought a part-time spinner could perhaps make him complacent, that was the plan, but he played superbly and those things do happen."

While on the other hand, Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson was delighted to see his team register a massive win. Reacting to this victory, Samson had some praiseful words for the star performers of the night Yuzvendra Chahal and   Yashasvi Jaiswal.

He said, "I didn't have to do anything today. Just put bat on ball and watch him play. We are used to it now, even the bowlers know how he goes in the powerplay. He enjoys batting in the power play. (On Chahal) I think it is time to give him the tag of legend. We are grateful to have him in the franchise. Never have to speak to him, give him the ball and he knows what to do. "

"He bowls at the death as well, very pleasing for me as a captain. (On the road ahead) We have two more quarter-finals to play, the pressure in never off in the IPL. Each game, each over is important. You can sense how the atmosphere is when a legend like Jos Buttler throws his wicket away for Jaiswal. Very happy today but we have a few more matches to go," Samson further continued.
