Du Plessis said, ‘It was a charismatic innings. You need players with strong character to win a losing match. And Dinesh Karthik is the perfect player for this position. The calmness with which he plays on the field allows others to come and settle down.
The RCB captain further said, ‘I think we bowled very well till the 19th over. Then a few shots from Jos Buttler put our bowlers under pressure. Because of this he made a good score. We didn’t get off to a good start. Yuzvendra Chahal kept our batsmen under control.
Despite this, Du Plessis said that we had faith in our players. “We were sure that we can win from anywhere. Shahbaz’s innings was amazing. He is thin but he hits long shots and has a clean game plan. He can also play a good role in bowling. Ahmed played an innings of 45 runs in 26 balls with the help of four fours and three sixes.
