IPL 2016: MS Dhoni relieved after Rising Pune Supergiants’ much-needed win

first_imgThe injury-hit Rising Pune Supergiants finally ended their losing streak by registering a seven-wicket win over in-form Delhi Daredevils at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Thursday.Opting to bowl, Pune bowlers did well to restrict Delhi to 162/7 with JP top-scoring for the hosts with 34 runs. Pune’s chase was anchored by Ajinkya Rahane (63*) and at the end Thisara Perera finished off things for his team with big hits.Here’s what Dhoni said after Pune’s crucial win The overall bowling effort pleased me the most and felt nice that we restricted them to 160. With a ground like this I think we did really well.There were quite a few hits from the batsmen but I think the death bowling was good. We are a bit uncomfortable in the middle, but I think it’s a well-earned victory for us.The wicket did slow a bit in the second innings. Mishra and Imran Tahir really bowled well.Even if the batsmen are hitting hard, you have to stick to your plans and I think that’s what makes the difference.last_img read more
