[IPL] Mishra lauds Hyberdad unity
Sunrisers Hyberdad bowler Amit Mishra hailed the camaraderie of his side after their three-wicket Indian Premier League win over Delhi Daredevils.
The win was the Sunrisers' third from four matches this campaign and moved them level with Royal Challengers Bangalore on top of the IPL table.
The Sunrisers had a few anxious moments in their run chase on Friday but eventually overhauled the 115-run target set by Dehli with four balls to spare.
Mishra was full of praise for his side after they continued their strong start in their maiden IPL campaign.
"In the IPL you can't predict what might happen but you need to improve everyday and that's what we are achieving whether it be with our batting or bowling," the Indian said.
"The new franchise is developing well with the likes of coach Tom Moody and skipper Kumar Sangakkara.
"So all of these senior figures are helping a lot which has built a good bond within the team."
Delhi are winless from their four matches and are anchored to the bottom of the standings.
Despite their terrible start to the season, Daredevils spinner Shahbaz Nadeem was staying positive in the wake of their latest defeat.
"In Twenty-20 cricket, we lost a winning match. We were fighting in the last three matches," Nadeem said.
"We lost in the last moment. Yes it's a matter of concern. We have to win now to qualify for the knock out stage. We will try to do well over the next games."
