Deccan Chargers batsman says his team was outplayed by Delhi Daredevils opener
By Akshay Manwani
Hyderabad 10 May 2012
The Deccan Chargers were outclassed yet again in DLF IPL 2012 as David Warner smashed the highest score of the tournament (109 off 54 balls) to power the Delhi Daredevilsto a nine-wicket win against the hosts. It was an insipid bowling display by the Chargers, who after posting a competitive total of 187, allowed the Daredevils to go past the winning score with 20 deliveries to spare. iplt20.com caught up with DC batsman, JP Duminy, after the disappointing loss to get his views on what went wrong for his team on the day
Tough loss JP. 187 should have been a winning score. What went wrong?
We just needed to stick to our plans. At the end of the day, we were a pretty inexperienced bowling attack. We loaded up the batting today, which came off. Unfortunately, we just didn’t bowl well in the end.
You didn’t play Rusty Theron who played in the last game. Was this decision taken to strengthen the batting order?
Yes, that was the plan. It went according to the plan on the batting front. Even though we have an inexperienced bowling attack, there are some quality players who can do the job for us. Unfortunately, coming up against the likes of David Warner, a world-class player who played out of his skin today, we were just not good enough.
Was it just the wicket, which was very good for batting or the line your bowlers bowled that was the problem?
I think it was a bit of both. We can’t take away the fact that they batted well, but at times we did bowl a bit short, a bit wide. So, we gave them an opportunity to free their arms. But having said that, they really batted well. [Naman] Ojha came in, stuck around, and found his feet in the end. All credit to them.
Is it just a skill-related problem or a mental block that you can’t convert good performances into wins?
It’s a combination of both. We have been in winning positions most of the time; today again, with 180-odd on the board. And more often than not, when we score 180, we win. Unfortunately, we lack a bit of confidence because we have not been winning. I guess that finishing touch in the end hasn’t been there. Hopefully, we can find our way somehow in the last few games. Without a doubt, Shikhar Dhawan and Cameron White have been your star performers throughout the season and they again batted really well today.
They have been outstanding. They assessed the conditions pretty well. It [the wicket] was a bit up-and-down in the beginning but got better to bat on in the end. They adjusted nicely and took on the bowlers once they thought they were in. All credit to them.
