Delhi Capital (DC) captain Shreyas Iyer, who tasted an 88-run defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), admitted that his team lost the match in the power play. However, Iyer is confident of winning the next two matches and making it to the play-offs. Iyer said, "This is a big defeat, but now is not the time to be convinced about the defeat." We still have two matches in our hands and only need one win.
We are waiting for the last three matches to see how we can win. We will be motivated to do well in the remaining matches and we will necessarily get a good result. There are no two opinions on this. Iyer said that he scored 77 runs in the power play and it was natural to be disappointed with losing the same match. We now have to come to the field in a very strong mindset and in a positive way. It is also important to note that this necklace will break your morale.
Sunrisers (SRH) captain David Warner says the next two matches are equally important for him. His goal in the next two games is to score big so that there is the hope of a place in the playoffs. Batting could be chosen before winning the toss. We had to target their fast bowlers. The decision to keep Johnny Bairstow out was tough, though we felt the need for fourth-placed Kane Williamson.
