Bravo said, “Keep your head up, Champ! Kwena Maphaka I’m sure you will definitely bounce back, and don’t let this one-off game make you start to doubt yourself. It’s a great challenge for you, and you will only get better as the tournament goes on.” 

Kieron Pollard also encouraged the young pacer and told him that he has a lot to achieve from here on! 

Pollard said, “Head up, young man. There are greater things to achieve. I’m sure your family, friends, and loved ones are very proud of you. tough first day at the office, but I loved how you kept coming. #greaterthingsinstore #future looks bright. #17yearsyoung, we believe in giving youngsters a platform, @mumbaiindians.”
