Phil Salt admitted that there was pre-match talk in the Delhi Capitals’ camp about responding to aggressive behavior and they were ready for it. Royal Challengers Bangalore’s pacer Mohammad Siraj hurled a mouthful at Salt prior to the end of the powerplay and the DC batter was ready to respond back to it.

“Their boys were up for the last game when we were in Bangalore. So a lot of the pre-match chat was about really taking it to them, which I felt that we did really well. There were a few words and a bit of needle, but most blokes were up for it, certainly myself,” Phil Salt said in the post-match press conference.

“I feel like if you take on a side’s best bowler a lot of the times and you win that particular battle, whether it’s the first over or any over that he bowls, the message that it sends back into the dugout is one of calm,” the young batter further discussed after the RCB vs DC clash.

It’s worth noting that Phil Salt was particularly severe on Mohammad Siraj, who conceded 28 runs in his first two overs. Delhi Capitals had come up with a clear plan of targeting the best RCB pacer in order to put pressure on the complete bowling lineup.

Despite the verbal banter with Siraj in the powerplay, Salt remained keen on guiding DC to an impressive win at home. Phil Salt smashed 8 fours and 6 sixes in his entertaining knock of 87 off 45 just balls in the RCB vs DC clash.

Rilee Rossouw scored 35 runs off 22 balls while Mitchell Marsh scored 26 runs off 17 deliveries as the DC batting lineup kept the momentum going against RCB. They eventually chased down the target in just 16.4 overs with 7 wickets in hand.
