DC played an important match against Royal Challengers Bangalore to seal the second qualifier berth. The team was coming from a losing streak and needed the win badly. The execution of the side paid off and the team finished on a winning note.
When Iyer was asked about special mentions for his bowlers, he mentioned that his bowlers knew what to do against RCB and thus were able to get a six-wicket win.
“We knew it was a do-or-die and an opportunity for us to get to the second spot. We were really motivated. The teams winning in the latter half completely changed the scenario of the table and it was really commendable. Really happy with how the tournament has gone so far,” Iyer said after the game.
“The bowlers were really up with their plans and they knew what they had to execute. [Anrich] Nortje was really good and it worked out pretty well. Kudos to the way the bowlers bowled. We are one of the best teams in the tournament and we need to stick to the basics and if we try and execute our plans, the results will come,” he said.
