"It feels nice to be part of another final. It is going to be a cracker of a game. The past doesn't matter, it is a fresh day, a fresh game and the pressure of this final will be different. But the guys have been in these pressure situations before, they understand the pressure of finals and yes, we have just got to treat this as another game," Rohit said when asked about the milestone after losing the toss to Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer. (IPL 2020 | IPL ORANGE CAP | IPL PURPLE CAP)
