“I didn’t know if the match would happen or not,” says Lalit Yadav following DC’s victory over PBKS. Lalit Yadav, all-rounder for Delhi Capitals, stated that his team was unsure whether the match against Punjab Kings would go ahead due to a few positive COVID-19 cases within the camp.

We’ve played good cricket so far, but we haven’t been consistent: Lalit Yadav
“This victory is extremely important in terms of momentum. We’ve been looking for a momentum since the beginning; we’ve played good cricket so far, but we haven’t been consistent. We were consistent in all three departments in this game, which is exactly what we wanted. This was a much-needed victory that will boost the team’s confidence going forward. It has also helped to create a positive atmosphere in the camp “Lalit stated in a press release issued by the Delhi Capitals.
The 25-year-old, who bowled 2/11 in two overs, spoke about how the team dealt with uncertainty in the lead-up to the game.
“We simply agreed to enjoy the game and give it our all. Were only concerned with the game. We also had one training session the other day, so we weren’t completely out of practice. It’s just that we didn’t know whether the match would take place or not. But we were confident in our abilities overall ” Yadav stated.
Yadav commented on the team’s mood following the victory, saying, “It had a completely different vibe. You know, when we win, everything appears to be in our favor, no matter how many mistakes we make. That’s fantastic news for the team, especially since the next game is in two days. The momentum we’ve gained is critical, and we’ll enter the next game with confidence.”
The all-rounder commented on Delhi Capitals’ upcoming match against Rajasthan Royals, saying, “They have been one of the most consistent teams in the tournament thus far, playing high-quality cricket. However, we will concentrate on ourselves, stick to our plans, and try to carry them out.”
