Amit Mishra(MOM): Bit of a pressure towards the end but I've improved my batting. I'm trying my best and working hard on my batting. I've played a lot of cricket here, the pitch is good for batting. A team win is more important than personal performance for me.
Kumar Sangakkara: Very proud to lead this side. A hard fought win for us today. Well done to the team but we should have probably finished earlier. We didn't have a great start and slowed down in the middle as well. Credit to Reddy, Mishra and Steyn for taking us through. We are a side that prides ourselves on teamwork. It could just be a catch, or one run or one wicket but it's all about teamwork for us. We've lost a few players to injury but the local Indian lads have been outstanding. White, Perera and Steyn have been outstanding in parts as well.
Mahela Jayawardene: Not really worried. It didn't go our way today but it's early days. We have to improve as the tournament progresses. The bowling was pretty good. I don't think we assessed the pitch that well. We were thinking of 160-170 but this was a 140 kind of a track. If we had assessed the pitch properly, our shot selection would have been better. Nadeem had a very good season with us last year. Happy for Jadhav as well, we've been trying different combinations this year, hopefully it clicks out. Delhi fans have always been supportive. Have faith on us and we'll deliver, it will be great if we can turn it around.
Lowest totals are always the toughest to chase' said Brett Lee on his twitter page at the half way mark. Hyderabad proved him right. They huffed and puffed through their way but just about managed to cross the line. Delhi's bowlers - Morkel, Nadeem and Botha in particular - kept it tight and struck at regular intervals as Hyderabad struggled for momentum. None of the top order batsmen converted their starts and in the end, it required a rear-guard effort from Amit Mishra to get them past the line. They'll take the win though, while Delhi will rue their batting failure.
