But I am most happy that the RCB captain trusted my ability and made me bowl at that time. On this ground, the spinner was also getting help, which I took advantage of.
Shahbaz further said that I was fully prepared to bowl in the second over. But Mohammed Siraj was bowling quite well and he deserved to bowl at that time.
Jonny Bairstow’s catch was very important to us and I am most happy that I had another chance. RCB’s team started well after losing the match toss but failed to score more due to losing a lot of wickets in the middle overs.
Glenn Maxwell scored the most runs for RCB. His captain Warner played the captaincy innings for the same Sunrisers. But failed to win his team the victory.
