On top of table because of my bowlers: SehwagPune: Even as Delhi Daredevils maintained their domination at the top, skipper Virender Sehwag today credited his bowlers for the team`s eight-wicket win over Pune Warriors here.

"Good to be (on) top of the table, all because of my bowlers as they did a fantastic job," Sehwag said after scoring an unbeaten 48-ball 87 in his team`s convincing win.

"They (Pune) recovered well after losing a couple of wickets early on but they couldn`t get past 150, which is chaseable," he added.


Pune Warriors skipper Sourav Ganguly said that 170-180 would have been a par score to defend at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium.

"We lost a couple of wickets early, we didn`t get enough runs, so 170-180 would be a par score," he said.

"It`s a good wicket, not a big ground. We were under six an over for about 13 overs and then got some runs in the end," Ganguly added.


Daredevils` senior batsman Mahela Jayawardene said the team addressed the issues that led to their defeat in the first-leg match against the same opposition three days back.

"In the last game, we made a lot of mistakes, we spoke about it. Our bowlers bowled very well today, and the batting clicked as well.

"We are getting a lot of things right, but there are areas (where) we can improve. It`s a long tournament, still halfway to go, we can`t get complacent," he said.
