We are very lucky to have experienced guys: Faf du Plessis
After winning the match, Faf du Plessis had a few words about the game in the post-match presentation. "We definitely needed that. We put up a decent total. We are moving in the right direction. We have been very good in the bowling department.
I thought 165 was a par score on that and anything above that was a bonus. I thought the Powerplay was a good time to score. The fielding was amazing. Some great catching and good bowling indeed," Faf du Plessis was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"We are very lucky to have experienced guys. Very good to have me lean on the senior players. Just keep improving in the batting department. We want one of the top four to bat through.
Need to keep playing the positive brand of cricket. Once you get an opportunity to think of the run rate in a match, you will be able to put on the gas and go for it," he added.
However, during the game, Mahipal Lomror who was looking good with the bat has missed timed the overpitched. Ravindra Jadeja tried to take the catch and ended up with an injury near his shoulder.
