Chris Morris told about their last over drama in the first match against PBKS
‘I would go back to the crease because whatever happens, Sanju was hitting the ball quite well at that time. People take me for granted, they have no idea how fast I can run. The way Sanju was hitting the ball that night was nothing short of a dream. I wouldn’t have been sad that night if they had hit a six off the last ball. ‘

David Miller did good batting and the match went in our favor. Dew also played a role here. I think DC bowled a better length than us and they had many bowlers who were getting a lot of bounce.
