Pathan, who starred in Delhi Daredevils' win over Kolkata Knight Riders in a rain-hit Indian Premier League (IPL) match on Thursday, credited the Eden Gardens wicket for the triumph, saying the pitch got better after the downpour. Pathan smashed an unbeaten 42 from just 20 balls to hand Delhi a winning start in their opening match of IPL 5 that ended well past midnight at the Eden Gardens.

 

Chasing 98 from 12 overs, Delhi coasted to an eight-wicket win with five balls to spare. “The wicket just got better. I've played at the Eden earlier and it's always on the slower side. Probably the wicket got settled because of the rain. The ball came nicely on to the bat,” Irfan told reporters in the post-match media interaction.
