Warner was dropped from the playing XI, a day after being stripped of captaincy. Under him, SRH managed to win one out their six video games. The Australian himself hasn’t been in biggest of type which led to Kane Williamson being handed the reins.
“It was very difficult (to drop Warner from playing XI). He’s a guy who’s had so much success for the team but that’s the way we wanted to go, try and get a different combination working for us,” Bayliss mentioned on the put up-match convention after his facet’s 55-run defeat towards Rajasthan Royals.
“Like any player who gets dropped, he (Warner) was disappointed. If you saw tonight, he was running around as 12th man doing as much as he could for the team. He has been good, talking with Kane and some of the other players, giving them advice,” Bayliss added.
The World Cup-winning coach mentioned that though it is going to be “challenging” with out a batsman of Warner’s stature, he would not foresee that crew having any drawback beneath the captaincy of Kane Williamson, who has led the facet earlier than.
“Very challenging without David as a player, a new captain. I don’t think there’s been too much of a problem as Kane has been captain of the team before in the last 2 or 3 years, he’s an experienced captain captaining New Zealand. We just didn’t play very well tonight and one guy played extremely well.”
Talking concerning the match, Bayliss mentioned Rashid Khan was introduced into assault within the powerplay in abid to dismiss the damaging Jos Buttler early.
“Rashid is our best performing bowler and he had a decent record against Jos Buttler in the past so we thought we’d bowl him fairly early to try and get Jos out before he gets going.
Obviously, a very flat wicket. And Kane decided to try and keep going to get him out. Unfortunately, it didn’t work tonight, that’s the way the game goes sometimes,” he mentioned.
Meanwhile, Jos Buttler who notched his maiden T20 century was delighted by his efficiency.
“It’s certainly up there, my first hundred in T20 cricket so I am delighted with that. I don’t say I felt my most fluent all the time, I have felt better at the crease at times.
“For some time now, I have never been feeling comfy within the crease, kind of trying to find one thing however what’s been good is retaining a very good mindset that on a regular basis is a brand new alternative. It was good to spend a while within the center as we speak and get again to my greatest.
Asked why he went for extra standard photographs Buttler mentioned: “Today, I felt like the pitch was in the lower side as the bounce is generally in Delhi and there wasn’t much pace in the wicket, so the scoop shots and shots behind the wicket I didn’t feel they would be as valuable as trying to target the straighter boundaries and back my hitting like that.”
The Englishman recommended the efficiency of the bowling unit that put up a “clinical” efficiency to defend 220 runs.
“It was great to have Kartik Tyagi in the line up today. I think he’s a really exciting bowler. He bowls with really good pace and he spent a lot of time with India on their tour to Australia and I’m sure he’d have learnt a lot spending time in that environment.
“It was a extremely good bowling efficiency by all of the boys, Mustafizur (Rahaman) was distinctive. That was a very good rating to defend however they made a scientific defence of that.”
