Mumbai: Young spinner Shahbaz Nadeem, who helped Delhi Daredevils record a comprehensive victory over Mumbai Indians in the IPL, said that his captain Virender Sehwag's encouraging words gave him the confidence to do well in the tournament.
Nadeem took two wickets in three overs during the powerplay in his side's seven-wicket win over Mumbai in Mumbai on Monday to be adjudged man-of-the-match. In an earlier match against holders Chennai Super Kings, he did not take any wicket but conceded just nine runs in his three overs with Delhi registering a resounding eight-wicket win.
"After the game against Chennai, Virubhai said you go and bowl your normal balls and you will do well. I bowled three overs in powerplay today and I concentrated on my line and length and it paid me off," said the 22-year-old Jharkhand player at the post-match press conference last night.
