Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant regretted the team missed 10 points against the Kolkata Knight Riders, but said the bowling unit did not need a “massive change” despite the loss at three wickets here Tuesday.
KKR bowlers limited the Delhi Capitals to a measly 127 for nine before their batting unit revised the target in 18.2 overs.
âI think there were 10 of us short, not a lot. We knew the wicket would slow down in the second run. But every team is trying to win the game, ” Pant said in the post-game presentation. Delhi hitters struggled with only Pant (39) and forerunners Steve Smith (39) and Shikhar Dhawan (24) managing the scores in double digits.
The batter was pretty tough for the new hitters. We wanted to capitalize at the end with the bat, but we lost wickets and ended up missing 10, “added Pant.
The skipper was “really happy” with the team’s bowling demonstration.
We learn from our mistakes. I don’t think there’s a huge change we need to make as a bowling unit, just a few things but we’ll learn from our mistakes and move on to the next one. ” ” We want to give it 100 % and if that doesn’t work out our way, we’ll learn and move on, âPant said.
Winning skipper Eoin Morgan was ‘delighted’ with his team’s performance.
It’s tough to play two-day games in three days, but I’m happy to get some points. Winning the throw and the field is not an easy thing to do.
The guys were more calculated today, and it went well. When the outfield is slow, if you’re suspicious it can come back and hurt you, âMorgan said.
Both teams played the game fiercely. On a hot day, things can boil over. Fortunately, this is not the case. The victory helped the two-time champions, who have won three of their last four games since resuming the league, solidify fourth place and Morgan credited head coach Brendon McCullum for the way the team performed. .
We all played in the right spirit. And it’s a tough competition against Delhi Capitals. All credit goes to our coach Brendon McCullum. It’s his philosophy, his state of mind, and the boys have accepted it. ” Sunil Narine was named player of the match for his overall performance. He caught two wickets, including the crucial one from Shreyas Iyer, while only giving up 18 points before breaking 21 out of 10 balls.
Watching a few games here, I knew there was a bit of rotation here. I didn’t want to be too full. I have been through a lot. âI have to give the bowling coach credit, that’s a plus and it’s the key for me to come back,â said Narine.
