KKR vs DC Post Match Presentation. DC Won by 7 Wickets.
Shaw and Pant have big smiles on their faces. The Capitals have thumped KKR by seven wickets. It was Shaw who set it up for them by smashing six successive fours in the very first over of the chase. He never really let up until he holed out in the 16th over. Stoinis and Hetmyer then sealed the chase of 155 with 21 balls to spare.
Dhawan, orange-cap holder during the KKR vs DC Post Match Presentation:
Prithvi was playing amazing and it was lovely to watch it from the other end. We were getting so many runs, so according to the situation I played my game and didn’t take risks. I don’t have to compare and just play my game. I’ve made a conscious effort to bring up my strike rate and earlier also I said that. Prithvi was in a different level today. I enjoy taking smart risks and trying something new rather than sticking to the same process.Dhawan, orange-cap holder
Eoin Morgan the losing side captain on KKR Team Performance:
Yeah, very disappointed. We were quite slow off the blocks, and lost wickets in the middle. Andre got us to 150, but we were slow with the ball again. Throughout the tournament so far we’ve struggled to combine batting and bowling in one match. He [Cummins] has been bowled earlier with the new ball [last season]. Mavi bowled four on the trot last game and bowled well. Moving forward, we need our big-name players to get into the action. You need to be honest and realistic. Otherwise you are doing a disservice to the guys in the change room. Hopefully, we can turn things around. We have a huge amount of talent, but talent only gets you so far. You need to turn it into performance, which we haven’t done.Morgan
Rishabh Pant on Delhi Capitals Win:
I was just telling Shaw to play the normal game. In the end, we were trying to get the run-rate up. Yeah, in these kind of matches, we can afford to think about net run-rate because the match was done by the 12-13th over. We just tell everyone to enjoy the cricket and do what they can best. I think Lalit is an allrounder. He hasn’t got enough chances with the bat. Last match we lost by just one run. We just told not to change our process. If you trust the process, you get the result.Rishabh Pant
Shaw, Player of the Match:
I wasn’t thinking anything to be honest. I was just waiting for the loose ball. I knew where Shivam will bowl to me – we’ve played [age-group] together for four-five years. Yes, I was prepared for the short ball. I thought one will come at the helmet, but he didn’t bowl. I felt on this wicket, especially when the spinner was bowling, it was stopping a bit and naturally it was going over the off side. So, I was waiting for them to bowl at me on off or outside off so that I can free my hands. When I think I’m in good touch and I don’t think about the score anymore. When I’m batting, I don’t care about myself, I just want my team to win. No, we haven’t spoken yet, but if I get a chance I will speak to Viru [Virender Sehwag] sir. I feel my dad has supported me after I got dropped from Australia. He just told me to play my natural game. All those words set a target for me and I worked hard for me. In cricket, the graph will go up and down for sure.Shaw on his performance
