Our team started very well which was very important for us. It was great seeing the performance of the team’s requirements. I am very happy because our bowling has been strengthened with the arrival of South African veteran Chris Morris. The plain of Sharjah was much slower than before and I knew it.
Everyone had to struggle a lot in this pitch except one super over and we were looking at a score of 160 runs. RCB captain Virat Kohli said about bowling that if your bowling area is strong then you can go to great depth in this tournament. I thought I would start getting hit after playing some balls.
But wicketkeeper-batsman AB de Villiers hit his third only a tremendous hit which was incredible. While praising AB de Villiers, RCB captain Virat Kohli said that AB de Villiers can hit very well in such a pitch.
Due to his talent and dangerous batting, we were able to reach a score of 194 runs. I do not want to get complacent but I want to extend this continuity of victory to the next level.
