“I have got full confidence in the players that they will have a really good game on Saturday. We strung back-to-back wins together for the first time (after Delhi Capitals’ previous match against Punjab Kings) in the season. It’s been an up and down season for us, but we’ve played some good cricket. I always talk about playing our best cricket at the business end of the tournament and peaking at the right time. I’ve got a feeling that the boys are about to do that.”

Speaking about their next game, Delhi Capitals’ Head Coach Ricky Ponting said,

Moreover, RCB has secured 16 points with the victory in the last game. But their net run rate is extremely negative. And it is the only positive thing right now for DC as if they can successfully register the win in the next game they will overtake RCB. So the calculation is very simple now if DC wins then they will be taking the fourth place and if they lose RCB will enter the playoffs placing in the fourth position.
