Captain du Plessis Speaks After RCB Qualifies for IPL 2024 Playoffs

Happy to win on home ground. Batting first, I think it was the toughest pitch I have played on so far in T20. After coming back from the rain break, Virat and I were talking about 140–150. The umpires said that there was a lot of rain on the pitch (Faf du Plessis on Pitch Condition), but they wanted to carry on with the game, and that is understandable.
Oh my God, I told Mitch Santner when we got back that it felt like a five-day test match in Ranchi, and getting 200 in that was just amazing. The batters have batted with excellent intentions and good strike rates in the last six games. It was incredible, even though initially we were sluggish but wanted to perform well.

We were defending 175, and it got a little close; MS was present. (Faf du Plessis on MS Dhoni) I thought, Oh dear, he’s done this before. We tried to change our bowling technique with the wet ball. I dedicate this Man of the Match award to Yash Dayal. His bowling technique was excellent. He deserves it, especially given how new he is.

Du Plessis’ Last-Minute Tip to Yash Dayal Before the Final Over

What he advised Dayal before the last over: Pace off is the greatest choice on this pitch; trust your abilities and have fun; this is what you’ve practiced for. The yorker did not work on the first ball, so he returned immediately, and it worked extremely well. (Faf du Plessis, RCB Crowd) It’s crazy; the fans came even when we didn’t win. In the changing room, we recognized we needed to solve this.

Coming here today was wonderfully done: CSK vs. RCB, an incredible atmosphere, and an honor to thank the crowd for our team’s support. It is quite crucial that we like it. Six terrific games in a row, and the first goal in the IPL is to get to the knockout stage, which we have done. Enjoy it, but return to work tomorrow.
