Here are the post match comments from the winning captain, losing captain, man of the match along with the full list of award winners from LSG vs RCB IPL 2022 match:

Faf du Plessis (Winning Captain): Today was a special day. Guys put in a really good performace. The way that Rajat played - am over the moon. The way he played, to put up an innings like that, and the way he celebrated his 100, says he got a good head on his shoulders - a special player. He's got all the shots. The way that he attacks. Everytime we're under pressure, he comes and flicks the switch. Special innings. We're going to celebrate with him tonight. I know we have a match in two days, but this is special and we'll celebrate tonight. We played a good game today. Quite a high emotion after that game (DC vs MI). It was important as a team that we calmed down a little bit for the match. (Eliminator) It didn't feel like it was a big game, everyone was nice and calm. (Harshal Patel) He's the joker in the pack. The special card you can pull out. He's a high-pressure player and I can always go to him when under pressure.

KL Rahul (Losing Captain): I think its quite obvious why we didn't win the game. We let ourselves down in the field by dropping easy catches. The difference between the two teams was also Patidar's knock. Patidar played a strong knock and also they fielded really well and we were very poor. When a player from the top ends up playing a good knock, the team ends up winning. We'll take back a lot of positives. It's a new franchise, first time we've come together as a group. Made a lot of mistakes but we'll come back and learn from it. We're a young team. We have a lot of guys under 25, and they've done well in patches. They'll also learn from their mistakes and come back and do better next year. (Mohsin Khan) has showed everybody how good he is. First season, and imporant he takes a lot of confidence from this, goe back and do better. He'll go back and develop a few more skills. He'll clock up more speeds and deliver better next year. He has a great future ahead of him.

Rajat Patidar (Player of the Match): Whatever I've done from the beginning, I've timed the ball well. When it was the fifth over, I was facing Krunal Pandya, I executed my plans perfectly and from there I knew I could play a good innings today. I was just focussed on capitalising on the opportunity and timing my shots well. I was never under pressure cause I know I have the ability. I was keeping myself busy and was focussing.

Harshal Patel: Hand's fine. It's healed superficially, but inside still there's a little issue. Everytime I stretch my thumb it's a bit sore. But as long as I can bowl my 24 balls am happy. There were a lot of thoughts in my mind before the season, cause we were playing in Mumbai and Mumbai has batting friendly pitches. I thought about focussing more on my hard lengths and mixing it up with the slower one. I was looking at the stats the other day, the things I wanted to work on, it worked out pretty well. My hard lengths have gone at seven and a half per over. It feels exception, i can't describe the emotions we went through during the DC vs MI game, and once we qualified we knew we were a dangerous team.
