Speaking on the sidelines of the match, Dhoni said Dwayne Bravo was sidelined due to injury, which led to Rabindra Jadeja bowling in the last over. Dhoni said, “Bravo was not fit, he came on the field and never came back.” I had the option of bowling with Jadeja or Karna Sharma. I chose Jadeja.
Dhoni said, ‘The peak wicket was very important but we have leaked his catch many times. He continued batting and his strike rate was also good at this time. The wicket was also a bit easier in the second innings. However, we cannot take credit from Dhawan.
Dhoni said the situation became difficult for him as the pitch was made easier. He said, “The team that batted first scored 10 runs less, then the team batted and scored ten more runs.” Man of the match Dhawan said it was great to score a century for the first time in the 13-year history of the IPL. Stayed.
“It’s very special that I’ve been playing in the IPL for 13 years and this is my first century innings,” he said. I am very happy I have been batting well since the start of the season but I could not convert the score of 20 runs to 50 runs. I was emotionally positive, and trying to run. I am more fit now I am running fast and feeling awake.
Delhi captain Shreyas Iyer said he knew the team would register a win if Dhawan remained at the crease till the end. She said, ‘I was nervous sitt ing in the dressing room. I knew that if Dhawan was at the crease till the end, we would win. He hit three sixes in the last over and praised Akshar Patel.
Iyer said, ‘The way Akshar hit three sixes after landing was great. When we give ‘Man of the Match’ in the dressing room, he will only get this title. Akshar hit an unbeaten 21 off five balls with three sixes and bowled economically. He scored only 23 runs in four overs.
