Shahrukh Khan: “We don’t know why we are taking games to the last ball. We have just focused on now finishing games in the 19th over if we are batting second. The last game has hopefully broken the jinx of going to the last ball. (On his role) I play according to the situation. It’s the same plan here. When a number six comes in to bat, the situation varies, and I just look to play accordingly. (Between the first leg and second leg) I was still practicing well. I got a chance in the last match. My plan was to look for boundaries as and when I could. We have to take it one game at a time. This is our first-afternoon game, and we have to execute what we have planned in our meetings.”
