The hero of Delhi Daredevils’ narrow escape win, Shreyas Iyer said he would aim to win the Man of the Match awards in the remaining two matches. He stunned Gujarat Lions by scoring 96 runs that helped Delhi win the match with two wickets remaining.
Iyer after the match said, “I wasn’t thinking much about my hundred, I decided at the start I would bat till the end. The hundred doesn’t matter, winning the game does.”
“I was just trying to time the ball, was getting the ball in my areas. Two matches left, let’s hope I get two more Man of the Matches,” he further added.
However, both the teams are already out of the play-off race but Delhi skipper Zaheer Khan was happy to see his team win.
Khan said, “Feels really good to fall on the right side of the result.’
“I felt the energy was low, after being out of the playoffs, but we are a professional side. You have to take these things in your stride and keep working harder. We would want to win both games, finish on a high. As a team, everything needs to come together,” he further added.
