TAKING THE CAPTAIN:
David Warner (SRH):
I actually wanted to hit first. (on his birthday) I don’t understand the cake business in this face (laughs), it’s quite messy. It was disappointing to lose that last game with so many goals in hand.
Shreyas Iyer (DC):
We’ll bowl first. The wicket looks dry and the late dew factor is a factor. It (the trend) definitely got into our minds, but we were constantly taking the first shots in the early part of the tournament. But the goal was drier and that affected our plan. We want to be in the top two, and the players are really motivated. After a few bad performances, we sat down together and talked about our mistakes. The same team.
THROW: Capital of Delhi Captain Shreyas Iyer wins the throw, opting to take on the Hyderabad Sunrisers.
The two captains – David Warner (SRH) and Shreyas Iyer (DC) – are in the middle for throws.
