Young Shreyas Iyer won many hearts yesterday as his team Delhi Capitals lost the match against Chennai Super Kings. After the match ended, Iyer was all praise for MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. Iyer said that it was a honour standing with them during the toss.
“Looking at the likes of MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma leading their teams and also standing with them at the toss, I have been fortunate to learn things,” Iyer said. He also added that he feels them as it is not easy to be a captain and take all the decisions. It’s very tough.
Iyer blamed the poor batting performances and said that they had a poor start in the power play which they expected as CSK have some good spinners. Iyer said, “We didn't have as many runs as we expected. Had a disappointing start in the powerplay and we knew that they have good spinners, so it got tough.”
Delhi Capitals remains the only team in the Indian Premier League to have never played a final. Delhi Capitals lost to Chennai Super Kings by 2 wickets as CSK’s openers smashed 100 runs between them. Batting first, Delhi made 147 runs from 20 overs. Chennai chased down the target in 19 overs.
