Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer said his team has the self belief to win the IPL title this time after it jumped to second spot in the points table following a 39-win over Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Invited to bat, Delhi posted 155 for seven and then returned to bowl out Hyderabad for 116 in 18.5 overs to notch up their second successive win.
“We are believing so and it’s never too far,” Iyer said when asked if he thinks his side can win the IPL.
Talking about the partnership he had with Rishabh Pant in Delhi Capitals’ innings, Iyer, who scored 45, said, “It started to slow down. Me and Pant had decided so that one of us will take the charge.”
Iyer’s 56-run partnership with Pant (23) for the fourth wicket took Delhi to a challenging total of 155 for 7.
“We got a little cameo from Keemo and Axar and helped us get to that total,” he said.
Asked about the composition of the tea, he said, “We have played together (Rabada and himself during U-19 days). It is good to be around each other. It is easy to have that camaraderie. It is a positive thing to carry around. We are positive as well when we chase. We will be backing our abilities.” (PTI)
