David Warner (SRH):
I was actually looking to bat first. (on his birthday celebration) I can’t understand this cake-in-the face business (laughs), it’s quite messy. It was disappointing to lose that last game with a lot of wickets in hand.
Shreyas Iyer (DC):
We’ll bowl first. The wicket looks dry and the dew factor coming in later is a factor. That (the trends) definitely goes into our mind but we were constantly batting first in the early part of the tournament. But the wickets have become drier and that’s affected our plans. We want to end up in the top-two, and the boys are really motivated. After some bad performances, we sat together and talked about where we went wrong. Same team.
