Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner was all praises for his team as they registered a 15-run win against Delhi Capitals. With this win, Warner and his team ended their own losing streak. “We lost the toss tonight and won the game, so feels good,” said Warner during the post-match presentation.
“Unfortunately Mitch Marsh was injured and we had to figure out how to get overs in but young Abhishek Sharma came in. We have been working really hard in our training with the death bowling, and today they were fantastic because they can be called up at any stage,” the Australian added.
“We need a bit of luck with the bat, around ten of them found the fielders. We pride ourselves on our running between the wickets. But in this heat, running does take a toll. I did hit some good shots, and I told the analyst that it only found the fielders,” Warner further added.
After this win, SRH are placed sixth on the IPL 2020 points table.
Shreyas Iyer, on the other hand, said that they had no idea how the Abu Dhabi pitch would behave.
“We were pretty much happy with 162, it was a par score on this wicket. We had no idea how this wicket would behave as this is our first game here,” Iyer said.
“They outplayed us in all three departments and credit to them for that. It was surprising and in the second innings, it (pitch) was two-paced. When I went in, the ball wasn’t coming onto the bat. We thought dew would come on but we can’t give any reasons at this moment. We didn’t execute the way we wanted to,” the young captain added.
“Lot of learnings from this wicket and conditions. Ricky went in (during the time-out) and we needed one batsman to take a chance as the required rate was pretty high. The ground is very big and we didn’t capitalize on taking doubles. We knew boundaries are big here and doubles will be key for us, It didn’t work out for us, hopefully next time we can maximize the opportunities,” Iyer further added.
