'On top, because of my bowlers'
Tuesday 24 April 2012

Even as Delhi Daredevils maintained their domination at the top, skipper Virender Sehwag credited his bowlers for the team's eight-wicket win over Pune Warriors.

"Good to be (on) top of the table, all because of my bowlers as they did a fantastic job," Sehwag said after scoring an unbeaten 48-ball 87 in his team's convincing win.

"They (Pune) recovered well after losing a couple of wickets early on but they couldn't get past 150, which is chaseable," he added.

Pune Warriors skipper Sourav Ganguly said that 170-180 would have been a par score to defend at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium.

"We lost a couple of wickets early, we didn't get enough runs, so 170-180 would be a par score," he said.

"It's a good wicket, not a big ground. We were under six an over for about 13 overs and then got some runs in the end," Ganguly added.

Daredevils' senior batsman Mahela Jayawardene said the team addressed the issues that led to their defeat in the first-leg match against the same opposition three days back.

"In the last game, we made a lot of mistakes, we spoke about it. Our bowlers bowled very well today, and the batting clicked as well.

"We are getting a lot of things right, but there are areas (where) we can improve. It's a long tournament, still halfway to go, we can't get complacent," he said.
