Raipur: Apr 30, 2013
 
The win against Pune Warriors lifted Delhi Dardevils from the bottom of the standings in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), and wicket-keeper batsman Kedar Jadhav feels the momentum is clearly with his side ahead of its match against title holders Kolkata Knight Riders here tomorrow.

“We have been playing well in the last few matches. We need to continue in the same vein against a strong KKR side tomorrow,” Jadhav said today at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium here.

One of Delhi’s most consistent batsmen in this season, Jadhav, who replaced Naman Ojha behind the stumps, is satisfied with his performance so far and hopes to continue the good showing.

Kedar had scored a vital 25 off 19 balls in his team’s win over Pune Warriors in their last match at the same venue.

“So far I am batting well in the tournament. I enjoy playing in death overs and I am enjoying my performance in the team,” he said.

Jadhav, who is performing the wicket-keeper’s role for the first time at the highest level, feels that he is growing in confidence with every match.

“I am keeping for the first time at this level, but I am enjoying it. Whenever I get chance, I practice it and it is adding new dimensions to my game.”

About the team’s strategy against KKR tomorrow, Jadhav said, “We have to bowl and bat well. Everybody has to play their game. Whoever will perform good, will win the match.”

Impressed with the playing condition of the newly-built stadium here, he said, “The wicket is very good here. It has good bounce and the boundaries are fairly long. The ground atmosphere is superb and is a great experience for us too.”
