Tripathi 93 scripts RPS overcome KKR at Fortress Eden

Gautam Gambhir says: Obviously, it is a long tournament and these things will happen (on Uthappa's injury). But it was an opportunity for some of the other guys to try and show what they have got. That's how we look at these things. We thought Robin had a niggle and we did not want to take a chance with three more games and playoffs to go. Till the time you are not there in the playoffs, you are not there in the playoffs. Obviously, wherever you are in the table it does not really matter.
We played some decent bit of cricket today. Taking the game to the last over was a good effort. But I still think it was not a 150 wicket, we should have got 180. 150-155 always makes it a 50-50 game. One big innings like Tripathi and that takes the game away from you. Trying to be positive and trying to be sensible as well should have helped us get a good score here. We played a lot of dot balls, especially after 6 overs. And we need to rectify that. If you play dot balls and lose wickets, you don't take the game forward. We still have to qualify till the time you qualify, we need to be positive. It's not do or die as of now but we need to pull up our socks.
