I was working on that ball (the nip-backer to Padikkal) for the last couple of years. You need to add different deliveries in this format. It's difficult for bowlers if you are predictable. Pretty slow and low wicket and I think if we get a good start then we can chase. Sandstorm has been happening suddenly, I think you can hear the wind (smiles)."

DC's Harshal Patel speaks before toss
Harshal Patel: The five-for in Chennai was great. Every time you plan something and it comes off it feels great. It's not every day that you pick up five-wicket hauls in T20s but when they come, they feel special. I've been here for 10 seasons, so I know it is like a pendulum and it can swing both ways, so all you can do is focus on your process and planning. In the last over in Mumbai I was not good enough to execute and the batsman (Jadeja) was good enough to get it away (for 36 runs in 7 balls). I just have to take it on the chin and move on. It can be taxing if you go down the rabbit hole, it can create a lot of self-doubt and confidence issues. You either fail to plan or to execute and I managed to fail in that over. You have to move on very quickly, and the faster you do that, the better it is for you. The plans remain the same. I have played with these guys for three years and if I can execute properly today, I'll be happy. I don't read much into the scorecard, because you can only focus on your process. Sometimes the best balls can go for fours and sixes, so you've got to focus on your process and execution.
APR 27, 2021 06:49 PM IST
"Last night it (the pitch) started slow. Later in the game the dew factor is an issue. I think it will play a big role in what happens at the toss. The winning captain is probably going to say we will bowl," says Kevin Pietersen on Star Sports.
APR 27, 2021 06:41 PM IST
Axar Patel speaks ahead of DC vs RCB match
Axar Patel: "Feeling good, I have good memories of this ground on my Test debut. Even in the last game you get confidence on winning close games. I just do my preparation on where to bowl to which batsmen and bowl to my strengths. It is our first game her and we haven't discussed the dew much, but we are aware and are ready what to do if it comes. If we beat RCB it will boost our confidence and we would look to maintain the winning momentum. Not thinking too far ahead."
APR 27, 2021 06:38 PM IST
Super Over thoughts
The last game was stretched to a Super Over and there were a few from DC camp saying that the match should not have gone to a Super Over and they should have won it before. Will Super Over win boost your confidence or affect it? Time will tell.
