Kuldeep also said that he wants his teammate Yuzvendra Chahal, who plays for Rajasthan Royals, to get the ‘purple cap’ given to the highest wicket-taker.
Regarding this, he said,
“There is no competition between me and Chahal. He has constantly encouraged me. He is like my elder brother and he supported me even when I was injured. I sincerely wish that he (Chahal) wins the Purple Cap because he has bowled well in the last four years.
The captain of the team Delhi Capitals, Rishabh Pant said that losing three wickets in the middle of two runs had strengthened his muscles. Pant said,
‘We were worrying after losing wickets continuously but we felt that if we take the match till the end, then we will win.’
‘We are not looking at the points table right now. Our eyes are on the next match. I want us to stick to our strategy.’
KKR captain Shreyas Iyer admitted that his team had scored a low score which was not easy to defend. Iyer said,
‘We batted slowly in the beginning. The ball was coming to a halt but the score was small on this pitch. We have to see where we are making mistakes. Our opening pair is not finalized which is a matter of concern for us.
“We can’t change much now,”
We will repose faith in our players. In the next five matches, we have to play better and more aggressive cricket. Preparation is going well but players have to change their mindset.”
