David Warner Captain of DC who is the leading scorer for DC in IPL 2023. In the post match present he was pleased with his bowlers despite batting is not at the mark. He had all the praise for the Veteran Bowler Ishant Sharma.
“Our bowlers were amazing. Our batters struggled but credit to the way Shami bowled. Credit to the way Aman and Ripal played from then on to get up that score. We just find ways to lose wickets in clumps, I always hate it when there’s a run out. I don’t know what’s happening with our batting. We tried playing positively today with the bat, didn’t come off. We then wanted to come out and swing the ball, get early wickets. Khaleel did well after coming back from injury, and Ishant is forever getting younger. I was nervous when Tewatia was going off, he has a reputation for that kind of stuff. Anrich is our most consistent death bowler, but couldn’t get it right today. But Ishant was so clear with what he wanted to execute for us.”, he said in the post match presentation. Source- IPLt20
