Jayawardene relieved after close win against Scorchers
Cape Town: They have inched closer to the semifinals with Sunday`s win but Delhi Daredevils skipper Mahela Jayawardene was not too happy with the way his players performed against Perth Scorchers, here.
Chasing a small target of 122, Delhi just about managed a narrow three-wicket win with three balls to spare.
Delhi had lost four batsmen at a score of 60 and had Virender Sehwag not scored a half-century and Ajit Agarkar kept his cool in that situation, they could have lost the match.
"We haven`t played for a week. So good to get out and play a good game. We made a few mistakes, which nearly cost us the game. We didn`t handle a few situations well. We will have a chat, but our bowlers and fielders did really well," Jayawardene said.
Agarkar played a crucial unbeaten cameo of 11 off seven balls to lead the side to the finish line and the skipper was all praise for him. "Ajit batted really well, the experience showed," he said.
Jayawardene also did not forget to acknowledge the fight back of the Australian side.
"All credit to them, they fought really hard," he said.
