We Need to Improve our Batting, Says Praveen Amre

Sudipta Biswas / 20 May 2016

After few hours, Delhi Daredevils will face Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL nine encounter. Ahead of their must-win game Delhi Daredevils assistant coach Praveen Amre said that the team needs to improve their batting.

“That’s the area (batting) we want to improve especially against Sunrisers. We know that once we batted well. We did well against Royal Challengers Bangalore in which Quinton De Kock scored 100 chasing 191. I think that was our best performance,” Amre told.

” We are looking forward to getting home ground advantage. We are hopeful and we know home support will be very vital which we want for the game,” the 47-year-old player added.

Delhi Daredevils played good cricket in the last game against Sunrisers. “We did well at their home ground in Hyderabad. We both batted and bowled well. We hope we can repeat that performance. This is for the first in IPL that the points table is such like anybody can qualify. Every game is crucial. The important thing is that we stay focused and we stay positive”, he said.

Asked about Mumbai batsman Shreyas Iyer’s failure to deliver in this IPL, he said, “As we all know he is the one who came last year as an emerging player. It’s like still learning for him. He is looking for that one good innings which is not happening with him this season, but he definitely goes back and learns.”
