Not shying away from the loss, Delhi Capitals’ Assistant Coach Pravin Amre reflected, “In this format, it’s always those last five overs that are critical. The whole idea was to keep them under 200, but You have to give credit to Romario Shepherd for the way he batted.”

“It was overall a good entertaining game. I’m proud of the way we batted. I think till 19th over, our scores were same around 201,” he further added.

Having lost four of the five matches so far, Amre said, “We have to start well in this particular tournament, but injuries have impacted us. In the first game, Ishant could bowl only two overs, then Mukesh got injured. Kuldeep hasn’t played the last three games, Marsh is injured, so all these are key players and it has impacted overall.”
