Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer speaks on having a strong mindset while playing qualifier 2 of the IPL 2020. After losing the first qualifier played against Mumbai Indians, DC is in pressure to win the second qualifier to enter into the finals of IPL 2020.
Shreyas Iyer fails to lead DC to IPL 2020 finals
In the 1st qualifier, batting first MI scored a mammoth total of 200 runs after their two key players dismissed for duck. While chasing DC loses its top three batsmen in the first two overs and lands in trouble.
Rahane, Dhawan, and Shaw failed to face MI’s star bowlers and return Pavillion without scoring even a single run. Trent Boult in his first over makes the two massive wickets by dismissing Rahane and Shaw.
The perfect lead has been followed by Bumrah where he dismissed Dhawan in the next over. Though Stoinis made a belief by moving DC’s score beyond 100, it’s Bumrah who again with his spell dismissed him after scoring a half-century.
Positive Approach by Shreyas Iyer
“I don’t want to speak negatively about the team, but going forward it’s important to come with a strong mindset. It’s never too late, and we’ll see to it that we come back strongly,” said Iyer after the match.
With this victory, Mumbai Indians paved their way for the finals of the IPL 2020. With a chance left out DC needs to rebuild their team in this crucial moment.
“I think we were on top when we got two quick wickets, and they were 102-4. We could have capitalised more at that time, and gotten two more wickets — maybe we could’ve chased around 170, but it’s part and parcel of the game. Every night can’t be yours,” said Iyer.
“We keep talking about the opportunities that we get and it’s important to have a good mindset. It’s not easy to be in the bubble and follow the same routine, but the practice we have done over the last few days, I’m really happy with the boys and their preparations.”
