On Monday, the Delhi Capitals narrowly defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. Both of the two batting teams failed to deliver, and bowlers took control of the low-scoring thriller. Even though DC has already won two straight games, they are still ranked last in the standings after seven games. In the post-game news conference, Kuldeep Yadav gave a candid appraisal of the team’s batting unit and acknowledged that there is still much space for growth.
We had performed admirably throughout the competition, and we were confident in our ability to bowl as a team. During the press conference on Monday, Kuldeep reminded the reporters that we still needed to get better at batting.
Although Delhi’s bowlers were unable to dismiss the whole Hyderabad batting order, they did manage to hold them to a total of 137/6.
Although we didn’t take a wicket in the first few overs, we bowled excellently throughout the entire 20 overs. By refusing to set up clear boundaries, we kept the pressure on them.
“I thought we bowled extremely effectively during the powerplay and conceded 35 or 36 runs. After that, me and Axar simply kept the game close throughout the middle stretch, and Nortje and Mukesh bowled superbly in the final four overs, according to Kuldeep.
SRH needed 13 runs in the last over to win, but they only managed to score 6. Kuldeep was pleased with how Mukesh Kumar handled the death while maintaining composure.
“He also bowled effectively in the previous game. He is participating in his first IPL and becoming better every day. It’s never simple to bowl in the last overs, according to Kuldeep.
Kuldeep leapt to David Warner‘s support when the choice to bat first was questioned.
For seven years, he has played here. He chose to bat first because he is familiar with the conditions well.
