Captains View

Rishabh Pant | DC Skipper

We are gonna bat first. I think the wicket looks slightly drier. There’ll be less dew today because of the weather. We are not going to judge ourselves on batting and bowling, we are gonna judge ourselves as a fielding unit. We are just trying to do the same thing in each and every match and it’s paying off well for us. One change. We have Axar coming in for Lalit.

David Warner | SRH Skipper

We have been batting second the whole time, so I don’t think it really matters. The way Kane and Jonny finished off the game last game was that we should have done previously. Obviously, the experienced heads in the middle, we were able to do that.

We bowled well, that was the most important thing and the most pleasing thing. Unfortunately, Bhuvi’s pulled up, bit sore. We have got Suchith coming in for him. That’s what we feel is best team to play against these guys.

Each wicket is pretty much the same. We have to assess here with the ball first and then chase down whatever they set.

Man of the Match

  • Name: Prithvi Shaw
  • Team: Delhi Capitals
  • Role: Batsman
  • Stats: 53 runs off 39 balls

It was a good wicket in the first six overs and then it slowed down, but it was fine. I felt the wicket was behaving a bit slower, the spinners were bowling well. 160 was good enough to defend, but a close game.

I am just doing all those stuff I have worked with. It’s helping me right now, so I think I should continue that. I didn’t think about it (Super Over) but Williamson played fantastic. He played a really good knock.

Axar bowled really well in the Super Over. I wasn’t there, I knew Shikhar bhai and Pant would go for sure because Rashid was going to bowl for sure. So, they wanted Pant and Shikhi to go and hit.
