‘I’ve talked to people over the years, and they keep telling me that things are changing in this format, so I have to keep believing. Today I was lucky enough to play a big role in something special. I used to bowl a little too short, later I consciously worked on it after getting a lot of feedback, “he added.
Sanju Samson, captain of Rajasthan Royals, said: “It’s funny that we kept believing (that we could win). I have held the innings of Mustafizur and Tyagi so far. Cricket is a funny game. We just keep fighting and believe. “
“I always believe in my bowlers, I want to keep fighting, and that’s why I kept the two overs until the end. catch, we could have won the match earlier. “People worked really hard on their fitness,” the captain added.
