We had faith in the team and we knew we would come back in the game, as we were better than Gujarat in every department; our substitutes played their role perfectly and we deservingly won.

How do you see the services team? This would be decisive match?

Services are one of the toughest team in the group, they are defending champion and a confident team. They are organised and physically fit team.

The game against services is awaited by everyone. Even spectators are eager to watch Maharashtra vs Services. We have some plans against them if it works then we are hoping for a positive result against them. All our boys are working hard and ready for final battle.
