After defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by six wickets, Delhi Capitals (DC) confirmed their second spot in the Indian Premier League (IPL) points table. With this conventional victory, DC book a date with the defending champions Mumbai Indians in the first qualifier on Thursday.
Even though Shreyas Iyer’s leading side DC had started the season on a high, they had to suffer four straight defeats before winning against RCB. But now it seems like they have to work hard against MI, who has been sensational throughout the season.
On being asked about facing MI in the first qualifier, Shreyas Iyer expressed his confidence and said that his fearless team would be ready for the challenge to beat MI in the first qualifier.
“The Mumbai Indians are one of the best teams. I feel we are also a fearless and amazing bunch of boys. It really depends on the day. They are pretty experienced in such (finals) stages but the team has a good attitude and good composure on that given day is going to make it through,” said Shreyas Iyer at the post-match press conference after the RCB clash.
“We need to keep things simple and not complicate in pressure situations. The way we have been going, this was a really good win and it’s going to be a really good booster as well for us,” Shreyas Iyer further added.
“This win was very essential, and it has put smiles on our faces after four consecutive losses. Today the way we played, it was a comprehensive win. All the departments were covered up well by the players,” said Iyer.
“I am really chuffed by their performance, the way they came up and delivered at the right time. The second-place obviously makes you feel good after the season you had, with all the ups and downs,” Shreyas Iyer signed off.
