Delhi Dare Devil wins over Banglore

Stand in Delhi skipper Dinesh Karthik could not contain his glee after his side defeated Bangalore on Thursday.
Gautam Gambhir’s return from Sri Lanka after a successful ayurvedic treatmemt was an icing on the cake for a team that was in desperate need of a win.

"I am very, very happy," Karthik said after the game. "We worked very hard for the win."

"The wicket we knew would turn as it did, since it was a bit dry and a score of 180 would always be challenging.

David Warner has been a great asset. He has done well for Australia and he is doing well for us. It is a blessing to have him, since he takes the pressure off Virender Sehwag."

"We fielded extremely well and the run outs were a  great boost. We really needed to bounce back with a win and that is what we did."

Bangalore skipper Anil Kumble was naturally a little downcast but given that his side is in a great position, he wasn't overly bothered with the loss.

"Naturally, we would have loved to win, but full credit to Delhi, they played really well," the veteran said.
"After the kind of start Delhi got off to, I think we did really well to pull them back.

"We began our batting well but a couple of run outs and some poor shot selection cost us," he added.

Asked if fielding first after winning the toss was the right decision, Kumble said: "It was always going to be a slow track, but our batsmen are in good form and we were expecting to win. It just didn't work out that way."
