Shreyas Iyer Reveals The Strategy That Came In Handy For Delhi Capitals Against Royal Challengers Bangalore
Speaking in the post-match ceremony, Shreyas Iyer said, “Getting four out of five, I will take that any day. Kudos to the boys. Also the temperament shown in pressure situations. Strategy was to play with freedom and be fearless. We have got good youngsters in our team who are filled with energy. Just that we have to go out and execute our talent and skill.”
“It is really important for us to get good recovery after the games. It is not easy when you are in the bio bubble. WE try to get into team activities and get to know each other well. It is really saddening when your senior-most player who has been doing so well misses out. We will miss him, but we have got good replacements as well,” Shreyas Iyer added.
