Having jumped to second spot after beating Sunrisers Hyderabad by 39 runs, Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer Sunday said that his team is believing it can win the IPL title this time.
“We are believing so and it’s never too far,” Iyer said when asked if he thinks his side can win the IPL.
Talking about the partnership he had with Rishabh Pant in Delhi Capitals’ innings, Iyer, who scored 45, said, “It started to slow down. Me and Pant had decided so that one of us will take the charge.”
“We got a little cameo from Keemo and Axar and helped us get to that total,” he said.
Asked about the composition of the team, he said, “We have played together (Rabada and himself during U-19 days). It is good to be around each other. It is easy to have that camaraderie.
“It is a positive thing to carry around. We are positive as well when we chase. We will be backing our abilities.”
A disappointed Sunrisers captain Kane Williamson said, “I thought the first half with the ball was a really good effort. It was a bare surface, probably a 160 surface. We tried in the second half but never got going with partnerships. Unfortunate performance but credit to Delhi the way they played.
