It's a nice way to start this trip. We have made a step in the right direction," Gilchrist said at the post-match press conference on Tuesday night.<br /> <br /> The former Australian wicketkeeper said his bowlers did a fine job by restricting the Daredevils to a modest 120 after choosing to bowl.<br /> <br /> "It was terrific to get another win. The way Harmeet [Singh] came on and implemented his skills was terrific. To restrict them to 120 was a great effort. Back-to-back wins build a good spirit and lift the spirit within the team," he said.<br /> <br /> Gilchrist also praised his opening partner, <a href="/tags/Mandeep-Singh/post" target="_blank">Mandeep Singh</a>, who once again got the team off to a flier in a small run chase.<br /> <br /> "Mandeep [Singh] has been fantastic for us. I have let him down by getting out first. He has been able to consolidate with whoever comes in," the 41-year-old added.<br /> <br /> Harmeet, who was awarded the man-of-the-match for taking three wickets, said his quick adjustment to the wicket helped him perform better.<br /> <br /> "I was a double-paced wicket as some balls were going through and some stopping on batsmen. It was important to read the wicket quickly and adjust your variations," the medium pacer said.
