Everyone standing in the circle wasn't convinced: Rishabh Pant
After losing an important match against Mumbai Indians, the skipper of Delhi Capitals, Rishabh Pant was not seemed to be happy at all. During the post-match presentation, the left-handed batter shared a few words about the game and also claimed their mistakes in the death overs.
"For most of the game, we were on top. On occasions, we let the game slip away from our grasp when we were on top. That's what we were doing throughout the season. Not good enough to win this match I guess," Rishabh Pant was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"It's not about pressure. We could have done better execution and planning. Learn from mistakes and come back stronger next year. We were 5-7 runs short but we bowled really well.
We bowled well throughout the tournament, but dew came in towards the end and we didn't bowl to our plans. It's hard but we got to take it on our chin and learn from it," he added.
However, the left-handed batter has been criticised for not taking the review when Tim David nicked the ball off Shardul Thakur. On that, Rishabh pant revealed the reason and said, "I thought there was something (about not reviewing the Tim David caught behind).
Everyone standing in the circle wasn't convinced and at the end, I didn't go up. We were discussing (with Ponting) that we will tell bowlers to keep it simple. Just keep doing what is working for us and keep believing."
