We thought it was an under-par score but wicket behaved differently: Iyer


PTI, Oct 10, 2020, 9:52 AM IST

Sharjah: Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer said he thought his team had put up a below-par total against Rajasthan Royals but the Sharjah wicket, known for producing a bagful of runs, was on the slower side and that worked in their favour.

Delhi posted the season”s lowest first innings total at this ground, making 184 for eight after being put in to bat on Friday.

However, the Royals ended up well short at 138 in 19.4 overs to suffer a 46-run loss.

“I”m really happy with the way we came out in the second innings. We thought it was an under-par score but it was stopping on the wicket and the bowlers executed their plans really well,” said Iyer at the post-match presentation.

“We were also going to bowl first with the dew factor, but thankfully it went in our favour.”

Delhi are sitting pretty at the top of the points table with five wins in six games.

Talking about the campaign so far, Iyer said: “I am enjoying captaincy because the players make it really easy, especially the bowlers. Even the way the support staff is managing the team meetings is commendable.

“I think the mixture in our team is really good and we have worked really hard on this.

“The boys have shared their thoughts pre-tour and their strengths and weaknesses. I am happy with how we are progressing and hoping to maintain the momentum.”
