IPL 2017 – Delhi Daredevils Batsmen Were Simply Unreal – David Warner
In T20, getting back to winning ways requires just an hour or two of the appropriate mindset and shedding the inhibitions. This is what exactly the Delhi Daredevils did against the Sunrisers Hyderabad at home, as the batting finally came to the party after it was humbled in the previous game in Mohali.
Chasing a steep target of 186, the Daredevils were off to an absolute flier, with skipper Karun Nair and Sanju Samson providing a solid base.
After Nair’s 20 ball knock of 39 ended, the younger duo of Rishab Pant and Shreyas Iyer took charge of the situation in the middle order and the boundaries kept on coming with a lot of ease. Ultimately, a brawny finish from Kiwi Corey Anderson was enough to seal the game, as the Daredevils won with five balls to spare.
Post the loss, David Warner admitted that the hosts batted simply superbly throughout the chase.
“Obviously it has been a little bogey being away,” said Warner about the team’s poor away record. “Not winning too many on the road. Talking to the guys, they thought 186 was enough. The way Yuvi finished off was fantastic. They played unreal. Came out with intent in the first six and with the way they finished, credit to them.”
“Definitely after the first couple of overs when the spikes were going in, the wicket looked slow. The slower balls were holding up and that is where we needed to be predictable. The quicker ball was coming on nicely. There wasn’t too much dew and no excuse,” the Sunrisers Hyderabad captain said.
“They batted fantastically and credit to them. We have a couple of days before two games at home. Looking forward to that,” he concluded.
