Kagiso Rabada Glad to Do Well in Super Over
|| India Correspondent ||
Delhi Capitals’ pace bowler Kagiso Rabada admitted that nerves were there when they went on to beat Kings XI Punjab in their first IPL 2020 game on Sunday through the super over. After finishing at the same score, Rabada came to bowl and got two wickets in the Super Over and restricted the opponent within 2 runs which Delhi successfully chased down.
"There will always be nerves no matter how long I play when things get tight. Lucky that it came off today. It just depends what's working for me on the day and some days you just get a feel for what might work and today I was mixing the lengths up and really glad it worked," he said after the match.
"Sometimes it works and sometimes it won't. Decent bounce on this wicket and the boundaries are quite big and I did back myself with extra pace and bounce. I just stuck my hand out and it stuck (Jordan's catch). I think the ball before he (Iyer) moved me there and it was just a reaction thing," he added.
Meanwhile, KXIP captain KL Rahul has said that the loss was 'bittersweet' but he applauded the effort of Mayank Agarwal, who nearly took the side the to the finish line before getting dismissed in the final over.
"It is bittersweet. If at the end of 10 overs, if you had said this match is going to a Super over, I would have taken it. It's still our first game, so lots of learning. He (Mayank) was unbelievable and to get a game that close was magical. He's been doing well in Tests and to get the game that close again brings a lot of confidence in the group,” he further added.
"Like I said at the toss, we didn't know what to expect. The wicket remains the same for both teams, so can't really complain. I will gladly take it as a captain whatever the result is. We stuck to what we planned but we did make a few mistakes. At 55 for five, we were calm and still positive," he concluded.
