De Villiers mentioned that Joshua Phillipe and his dismissals in fast succession was the turning level within the recreation.

“Credit to SRH, they bowled exceptionally well from the word go. They didn’t give us a lot of boundary balls. Their seamers started well in the powerplay, they didn’t make a lot of mistakes and then after that it didn’t get much easier with Rashid Khan, who didn’t bowl a lot of bad balls either tonight. I think they applied a lot of pressure and then the turning point was probably when Josh and I got out back-to-back, that cost us maybe 20-30 runs which is unfortunate. At the end of the day I think that might not have been enough anyway. The field got wet in the 2nd innings which made it difficult so maybe 140 would have been short anyway,” De Villiers mentioned.

“We were very well prepared, the top-5… We’ve had a very good meeting leading up to this game. I thought we did everything we could against SRH, they bowled very well.
