The win boosted MI’s playoff qualification hopes and dealt a major blow to RR.

“We had to come here and do what we had to do, which was to get the two points. It was a chance to improve our run rate as well. We got off to a flier. And we said there is a chance for us to up the run rate,” said Rohit during the post-match presentation after MI beat RR by eight wickets.
