Meanwhile, for the Royals, it was their fourth defeat, but they remained second on the table with 16 points with a qualification to the playoffs. During the post-match presentation ceremony, Samson said, “To be very honest, we have to sit back and accept that we are going through some failures. You have to find out what's not working well as a team. When you are getting to the business end, we need someone to raise their finger up and say I am going to win the game for the team."

On the other hand, PBKS skipper Curran who also won Player of the Match spoke about the positives from the tournament despite finishing ninth.

“I've thoroughly enjoyed the season, thoroughly enjoyed captaining. Quite frustrating to leave, but obviously excited about the World Cup," said Curran, who will not play the last league game of PBKS. "Over the next few seasons, if we can keep some of the really good players, we can go better. Lots of positives. The chase against KKR. Shashank Singh has been amazing, as Ashutosh (Sharma) in his debut season. Harshal and Arshdeep have done well as well."
