Heinrich Klaasen (Seattle Orcas Captain): "Just to do the basics right and execute our plans. Batters took the responsibility. Boys rectified the mistakes we made in the last game. 

Luckily, we got a great group of local players. The moment I struggle a bit, I go up to the players and they help me out. He (Rickelton) wasn't playing for two months but nice to see him get to that landmark. It was an incredible knock. Never fun but I asked Quinton to finish the game in the 18th over but he said it is tricky. However, the guys were always in control. As long as they are in, you have the confidence that they'll get the job done."
Sunil Narine (Los Angeles Knight Riders Captain): "I think we got off to a decent start. In the middle phase, they bowled well. We did well but with the ball we did not stifle them and they were better. Not a game of cricket we wanted and now back to the drawing board.

We did not take wickets in the powerplay and they had wickets in hand and so, they got the win. We had to score more because we know it gets better under lights and we needed to be better.

A bit of break, clear our mind and start afresh. Play better cricket and execute the plans. That will be my message to the team. Hope to come back stronger in the next few games."   
Ryan Rickelton (Player of the match): "Yeah, a different experience. Got a great bunch of guys here. I was panicking but Quinton helped me. Nice to get over the line. At the end of the day, it is always nice to play with him, he is a great player. 

I think it got a bit better. It skidded on under lights and benefitted us under lights. Yeah, it was a shocking run, I just had to run, lucky it didn't hit the stumps. Happy to get the win and points on the board."
Most Valuable Player: Ryan Rickelton.  
Play of the Day: Quinton de Kock.   
Power Hitter of the Match: Jason Roy (305 ft).  
Time for the post-match presentations.  
Wayne Parnell (Seattle Orcas): "I think the bounce back ability from us, The bowling was good and with the bat one scored a hundred and another scored a fifty and we get the win. That was great. I was sick and now trying to get back to fitness. Nice to come back and out of the hotel room. Ryan was great and Quinton took his time initially. I think both showed their composure out there and showed great experience. We wanted the win and did not think about Net Run Rate and all. The hat is a fashion hope it helps everyone involved."   
9:26 AM IST & 10:56 PM Local Time: Ryan Rickelton and Quinton de Kock's record partnership helps Seattle Orcas to register their first win of the season. They beat LA Knight Riders by 9 wickets.
