After the poor start in the Ninth season of Indian Premier League , Delhi Daredevils are back with three consecutives win, and have the momentum on their side after there last win from Mumbai champions, said the Middle order batsman Karun Nair.
The daredevils are presently third in the league standing with four points in three games.
Asked about their last win, Nair said: “I think we have momentum on our side. Mumbai Indians are a good side, they are the defending champions. So whichever team plays well on the day will win the game. We are just concentrating on our process. We will give our best on the ground.”
In this IPL chasing the target has been the preferred choice of most of the teams and Karun feels all the sides have worked on this aspect over the years.
“The teams have become smart over the years. They come out with certain strategies. They know how to chase and when to go after which bowler. The teams are chasing really well.”
In the past years chasing has been a problem for every team but every team has really worked on that aspect,” the batsman from Karnataka said.
He also expressed that Rahul Dravid’s mentorship has benefited them a lot, and as there are young players in the team, everyone is looking forward to improve and get opportunities.
“I have been lucky to be mentored by him (Dravid) for the last few years. For any youngster to have him in the team is an inspiration. We are just trying to make the most of him being there and get as much out of him as possible,” Nair said about Dravid.
The batsman also feels that the domestic cricket differ a lot from IPL, and as a batsman he looks forward to new opportunities.
“I think there is a lot of difference between domestic cricket and IPL. The mindset changes but cricket doesn’t change. I look forward to playing my natural game. The level of cricket is different in domestic and IPL. It’s a huge step for any young domestic player,” he said.
