he said . ” We have achieved the rhythm and now we have to maintain this winning streak. ”
‘Man of the Match’ Iyer said, “No score is big on this ground and therefore it is not easy to win by batting first. Matches are always exciting here and it was also a very close win. “He said,” It was difficult to defend runs here. Especially of such huge runs. So it was better that we come and bat. Winning this match is a big success for us. I think today was the right time to attack the bowlers on this small ground. At one time I hit only six.
He added, “We often talk about close wins. This is one of those victories. We were confident because we had two good overs left, but what happens when Sharjah is on the pitch, no one can say. We have a good platform. But from here we have to go forward. ”
