Delhi Capitals spinner Amit Mishra, who won a four-wicket match against the Mumbai Indians, said he was particularly pleased to release the opposition captain Rohit Sharma and Kieran Pollard.
Mishra led the bowling fee to 4/24 to help the Delhi franchise limit the Mumbai Indians to 137/9.
“The wickets of Rohit Sharma and Kieran Pollard have been special to me as they have changed MI’s game for many years. I always go for the door in every game I play,” the 38-year-old said in a statement from the team.
“I had a clear plan for where I should be bowling and how I could release each of the big players from the Indians in Mumbai through my variations. And I’m very happy to be able to carry out my plans. I’m even happier with Delhi Capitals win the match. “
The Delhi Capitals had only one day difference between their match against the Punjab Kings in Mumbai and their game against the Mumbai Indians in Chennai.
However, Mishra said the rapid change of seats did not affect the players.
“It was a challenge to be ready for a match in a different place for a short period of time, but as professional cricketers we know how to motivate ourselves and recover for the next match.
“The work of physiotherapy is very important in these situations. And once we step on the field, we focus on our performance and don’t think about anything else.”
Asked if DC’s recent bad record against MI played on players’ minds before Tuesday’s game, Mishra said: “In T20s we have to forget the past and start over in every game we play because everyone can change the game every day. .
“I don’t think any of the players thought about our recent record against MI. As (Delhi Capitals head coach) Ricky Ponting told us, we take every day as a new day and play positively in every game.”
