Amit Mishra has defended his side’s performance after they lost to Chennai Super Kings at Chepauk by just one run.
Delhi Daredevils have not, as of yet, won the IPL trophy, or even placed as runner-ups. But Mishra believes that Delhi are getting better as a team, and the closeness in the team is better than ever before.
Mishra is the only bowler so far to bag three hat-tricks in the Premier League franchise.
Mishra believes that losing by just one run is just a matter of luck. He says that the team played well: good bowling, good batting, and good fielding, but sometimes, it’s a matter of who clicks and who fails to.
Albie Morkel batted gloriously for the daredevils, going to an unbeaten 73 in 55 balls, but his energy was unrewarded as Delhi crumbled, giving away a few cheap wickets.
Amit Mishra also laments the fact that cricket is so quickly becoming a batsman’s game, with bowlers relegated to the second spot. However, he also says that he is ready to face the challenges that come with the evolution of the game and is willing to change as the game changes.
The return of pace maestro Zaheer Khan is highly anticipated, with Delhi needing every man to pull off a convincing performance this year.
