'We couldn't get going in the first three overs and that was the difference' - Captain Ruturaj Gaikwad opines regarding first defeat post-match

The defending champions of IPL, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) lost the first match of the season against the Delhi Capitals (DC). CSK team is known for their great starts during the powerplay. However, this match didn't go in their favour as they lost both their openers within the powerplay. This was the only reason why they lost the match as they outplayed DC in all the other departments. However, during the post-match presentation, Captain Ruturaj Gaikwad talked about what went wrong for the team. 

"I felt he (Rachin) was missing it by a big margin. We couldn't get going in the first three overs and that was the difference. At the halfway stage it was getable. There was extra seam movement and we couldn't capitalize and we were always behind," said Ruturaj at the post-match presentation.
