Showing up and showing the fight when we’re not in dispute was great to watch: Kane Williamson

Abu Dhabi: Fantastic bowling from Sunrisers Hyderabad helped SRH beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore by four runs in their IPL match here on Wednesday.

Calling the conditions challenging, the SRH skipper, who was also Man of the Match, said: “It has been a really difficult season, but it was great to see these little improvements. The conditions are challenging and to see the fight and the heart in the second. The middle was great to watch. It was about trying to maximize the power play on this field. The ball stayed on the surface and you had to go back a couple of steps to move forward again. We reached a challenging total. We knew things wouldn’t happen quickly with the ball today. It was nice to fire Maxwell. To fire him one way or another was the right thing to do. Close it in death, show up and show the fight when we’re not in contention, it was great to see. “

In praise of Malik, Williamson said: “Umran is certainly special. We have seen him on the net for a couple of seasons. A special opportunity for him and it is not surprising to see him come and do well. He has been a really worthwhile addition.” I try to be very simple with him, but he has a lot of teammates and they share the message and he takes the game. It has been a challenging season and it has been great opportunities for some youngsters. We’ve had a lot of last minute endings and being on the right side of them is clearly helpful. But one thing tonight is that it was satisfying for the group. “

Meanwhile, RCB captain Virat Kohli said: “The intention should always be to do it as soon as possible. We don’t want to stretch things too far. Dev (Devdutt Padikkal) and Maxi (Glenn Maxwell) set things up, but Maxi’s run away. It was the turning point for us. With AB you’re never out of the game, but it’s also about keeping the guy in the flow on strike. I think Shahbaz played a crucial blow on stage and got us back in the game. It’s a game of small margins. Things could have gone anywhere and the Sunrisers calmed their nerves not to allow us to escape. “

“Chahal is bowling quite well now. He seems to have worked on his bowling with all his spare time. That he bowls well is a good sign for the team. [Umran Malik] Nice to see a boy bowling at 150 clicks. It is important to understand the progress of the people here, how to take care of yourself. We have to maximize the potential of our fast bowling stock, “he added.
