The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) put on a quality display as they beat the Delhi Capitals (DC) by five wickets at the Feroze Shah Kotla here on a wicket that was pretty low and slow. While the decision to win the toss and bowl first from SRH skipper Bhuvneshwar Kumar surprised quite a few, the captain said it was because they weren’t sure how the wicket would play.
“It is always easy as the captain when the team does well and I always believe that the captain is as good as the team. We weren’t sure at the toss about how the pitch would play, but we always wanted to bowl given how small the ground is. We knew that it would be easier in the second innings and it would be a tricky chase; but the start we got was great,” he said after the game on Thursday.
Bhuvneshwar went on to add that wickets will only get lower and slower from here on and spin would play a major role in the second half of the league.
