After suffering a fourth consecutive defeat in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Delhi Capitals captain Shreyer Iyer said here on Saturday that there were many ‘flaws’ in terms of planning his team and putting it on the field.
Have to beat bangalore
Delhi team could only manage 110 runs for nine wickets against Mumbai Indians. Mumbai achieved the target at the loss of one wicket in just 14.2 overs. After this big defeat, Delhi’s net runrate has deteriorated and will have to defeat Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last league match to reach the playoffs.
Delhi captain’s statement
The Delhi captain said after the match at the award ceremony, “We see a lot of flaws in it, but we can be strong and positive by trusting ourselves.” Iyer said that his team failed to understand the pitch properly. He said, ‘Obviously, we failed to understand the pitch. We were not right from the beginning and we could not achieve the rhythm with wickets falling in the powerplay.
Iyer said the team’s batsmen also failed to form a partnership. He said, “It was necessary for us to form a partnership but this is not happening continuously”. He said that a score around 150 would have been a score worth fighting against on this pitch. He said, “It is important for the openers to start well. Once you achieve the rhythm, you can score big later. I believe a score of 150-160 on this pitch would have been a good goal. ‘
