Previous Match Reviews:
White: We didn’t play well enough, Mumbai did. The difference was about 15 to 20 runs. I thought I’d rather bowl Steyn before the match goes away from our hands. He bowled brilliantly. So, that was the plan, to get the most out of him before the match goes out of our hands.
Dale Steyn: Would have been happier with a win tonight, but it’s ok. I apologize for the celebrations after taking Levi’s wicket, I am never going to do that again. Half of my match fee should be taken away (says jokingly). We were 20-30 runs short. We have been a great side, we haven’t crossed the line, but we’ll try to win the remainder of the games.
Shikhar Dhawan has displayed fine form and has been one of the lone saving grace in what has been a tournament to forget for the team from Hyderabad.
The host would look to openers Jesse Ryder and Robin Uthappa for a good start, which could be capitalised later on by the likes of Ganguly, Steven Smith and Manish Pandey.
Experienced duo of ageing paceman Ashish Nehra and spinner Murali Karthik would have to take the responsibility of stopping the Delhi batsmen.
Nehra: We have been bowling and batting well but we lost a few close games. Hopefully we are back on track now.
