Shreyas Iyer Found It Tough To See The Game-Changing Again And Again

Shreyas Iyer was ultimately the winning captain even though things were changing from one end to the other very quickly in yesterday’s IPL 2020 match. For Iyer, it was tough to see the game swinging in favour of both teams in quick succession. During the initial stages of the Delhi batting, it looked like Punjab would win the game with minimum effort. However, a Markus Stoinus death attack meant a comeback from Delhi. Iyer said,

“It was difficult to stand out there and see the game turning in different directions.”

Shreyas Iyer Gives Credit To Rabada And Stoinus For First Win In IPL 2020

The difference between the two sides was surely Markus Stoinus who displayed a stellar performance with bat and ball. He scored a quick 53 to take Delhi to a fighting total. When the game looked lost for Delhi, he took the ball and took two wickets in the 20th over win take the match to a super over. However, another bowler was also the star of the team, and that was Rabada. He did not give away many runs and took two wickets. Moreover, he also took two wickets from three balls in the super over. Iyer said,

“I would like to say we are used to this. Even last season we faced these. KG (Kagiso Rabada) is the winning performer, and the way Stoinis batted was game-changing.”

Shreyas Iyer Gives An Update On Ashwin Post Injury In First Match Of IPL 2020

Ashwin got injured after taking two wickets in the first over. He was seriously injured and had to leave the field for the rest of the match. However, Iyer hinted that Ashwin was fine and will join the squad unless the physio had any objections. He said,

“It was important for us to get wickets since the total was small, and I knew if I saved KG’s over for the end, it would be helpful. Ashwin’s over was a key one, and it changed the game in our favour, but that’s what T20 cricket is. Ashwin says he’ll be ready for the next game, but in the end, the physio is going to decide.”
