Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant told after registering victory against Kolkata Knight Riders that at one point he was afraid of defeat. Pant said that he was tensed when Delhi Capitals lost early wickets, but he was confident that if the team bats till the last, they will win the match. Chasing a target of 147, Delhi Capitals lost five wickets for 84 runs, within three overs, Delhi Capitals’ score was reduced from 82 for 2 to 84 for five.
Pant said after the match, ‘We were afraid of faltering the innings because we had lost more wickets in the middle. But we were also thinking at the same time that if we bat till the last, we will achieve the target. The return of Mitchell Marsh to the team has benefited. Khaleel Ahmed got injured at the last minute and we had to make changes in the team.
Pant said, ‘Once he comes back, we will go with the best playing XI’. Pant said about Shreyas Iyer’s catch, ‘I was watching the ball till the end, I keep a lot in the nets, this was my best catch so far this season. We look at Rovman Powell as the finisher, but even when we lost a lot of wickets, he got the job done. We are just focusing on the points table and looking at one match at a time.
