What does the captain say about this defeat?

This is the second consecutive defeat for Delhi Capitals and Rishabh has to take responsibility.

Pant said: “Definitely disappointed. The best thing we can do from this is learn from it. The bowlers did really well till 15-16 overs, batters sometimes go on at the death and score quickly, that happened in this game. Marsh and Warner gave a good start, but we lost a few wickets in the middle overs and in the end, we had too many runs to cover up.” He added, “There are other options, we wanted Nortje to bowl at the death and sometimes you can go for runs, hopefully, we can do better in the next match.”
