Mumbai Indians who do not spin alcohol, Jayant Yadav admitted that his team had 10-15 tracks short of the face value IPL game against Delhi Capitals, which lost by six weekends on “difficult” terrain of Chepauk.
It was Mumbai’s first loss to Delhi in five games.
“We were 10-15 runs away from the nominal result. But at the end of the day there was dew in the bowling alley, but we showed a lot of character to drag the match to the last,” Giant told a press conference at the match.
Before Tuesday’s game, the last game Jayant played in the IPL was the 2020 final.
“IPL is one such tournament where you have to be on your feet. There is a team of 25 players, but at the end of the day only 11 come out on the field and you have to buy what the captain and the management require of you.
“There is clear communication of the roles that everyone should play,” said Giant, who returned with a figure of 1/25 on Tuesday.
He added that the referees must decide whether to change the ball or not on Tuesday night, when the dew becomes heavier.
Mumbai, who have now won two games and lost as many more, face the Punjab Kings here on April 23.
