We are ready for the challenge: David Warner
After losing the match against CSK, SRH captain, David Warner, at the post-match presentation said that his team will everything to beat the top teams. As SRH will take on top teams in the upcoming days, SRH captain said that the whole team is ready for the challenge.
“The wicket was on the slower side, I think we needed an extra batter. We tried to take it deep. You got one big boundary, so it’s not easy. We have to go back to the drawing board and work on few areas. I thought 160 was the right total to go after, but anything above that was always going to be difficult. Having 6-7 bowlers in the team helps. It’s difficult to play against bowlers who can swing the ball. There’s always a challenge in the powerplay, but you have to take on the bowlers.
We need to monitor the wickets in the upcoming games and select the team accordingly. I think with our team and the depth that we have, we’re always going to be one short either way. Things (in the points table) are always congested in the middle. You got to beat the best teams, to make it to the top. We’ll be facing the top teams in the next few days, so I’m up for the challenge and so are the other guys,” SRH captain David Warner signed off.
