Durban: Livid after Delhi Daredevils went down meekly to Highveld Lions in the Champions League Twenty20 semifinal, skipper Mahela Jayawardena said his team did not have the "right attitude" and was bogged down by nerves and pressure.
Jayawardena dropped himself from the line-up to accommodate the aggressive David Warner in the playing XI but the move hardly paid as Delhi fell short by 22 runs in a chase of 140 last night.
"We play very good cricket throughout but when it comes to those big matches, we don't seem to find the right attitude. It could be put down to nerves and pressure. Because it has happened to us in the past, it probably goes through our minds when we're playing a big game," Jayawardena said after the match in which only three Delhi batsmen hit double-digit figures.
