After winning the rain-curtailed game last night against the Rajasthan Royals, the Delhi Daredevils captain Shreyas Iyer has come out and expressed that the victory achieved over RR is very important for Delhi's chances in the competition. DD is living on a knife's edge as they need to win all of their games from now to have a chance of reaching the playoffs.
Iyer was quoted saying after the game that, “It was a very important victory for us. This wicket is very good and even 200 is very less. Bowlers kept their nerve and we came back strong. I dropped the catch but we won the match"
"The start that Shaw is giving was amazing and Pant’s role in the middle is pivotal. It is important for us to win all the matches from here. Ponting is a positive guy and no one is thinking negative in the dressing room. It is difficult to bowl with the ground being small, it is really tough to control when the batsmen start hitting,”
Rishab Pant, the wicketkeeper-batsman for DD, hammered the RR bowlers around the Feroz Shah Kotla for a brilliant innings of 69 from just 29 balls.
Pant was also quoted about the game and his performance saying as “It is going great for me. The win is more important for me. There is no added responsibility for being the retained player. I am using some different tricks to counter the bowlers. We are being positive because we know if we lose one more match we are out of the tournament.”
