Rishabh Pant | Losing Captain

"...Think the only thought process behind it was there could be dew which didn't come (on choosing to bowl first), but we would still have had a chance had we restricted them to 220-230. The powerplay was the difference, they got (125) runs and we ended up playing catching up after that"

Pat Cummins | Winning Captain

"...another great game of cricket. Need to keep that going. There wasn't much for the bowlers in the powerplay. Got better for the bowlers when the ball got softer. Very excited to see them batting, but got to bowl in the second half. We were really disciplined with the ball, the bowlers executed their plans."

Travis Head Is The Player Of The Match

Travis Head | POTM

"Just tried to stay relaxed and hit the ball. Need to keep things simple, need to react to the balls. Very pleased to continue with the same form. He (Abhishek Sharma) plays well in the powerplay. He's aggressive against spin, just let him do his things. Very enjoyable partnership with him"

That's It From Our Side

Another high-scoring encounter and SRH are now second in the points table with five wins and two losses while DC are seventh with three wins and five losses. That will be it from our side tonight. Good Night!
