IPL 2022: We showed fighting courage, says Delhi Capitals batter Tim Seifert
IPL 2022: Despite a shaky start in which they lost three wickets in the opening six overs, the Delhi Capitals pulled off an incredible chase.
When Shardul Thakur became the sixth wicket to fall soon after, the 2020 finalist needing 75 off 42 balls at one stage. They weren’t done yet, as Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav staged a coup to help the Capitals get points.
“Everything is good. Great way to start the campaign, for me and the team. It was an entertaining (game), T20 cricket. We showed fighting courage, ” said Delhi Capitals opener Tim Seifert after the match.
Tim Seifert only managed 21 off 14 balls, but his superb catch to remove dangerous Kieron Pollard off Kuldeep Yadav’s bowling ensured that the dangerous batsman was out cheaply for three runs.
“Sometimes you got to stick the mitts out. It was good to see the back of him early (on Pollard’s catch),” said Tim Seifert.
On April 2, the Delhi Capitals will face the Gujarat Titans, who captained by Hardik Pandya.
“We have been here for a week. It has been excellent. The cricket we have been talking about (with Ponting) has been excellent. Looking forward to the next few months with him,” said Tim Seifert.
