Harry Brook said at the prize distribution ceremony after the match, it was a very special night. Thank goodness we won. There was some tension in the middle. A lot of people say that opening is the best time to bat in T20. I am happy to bat anywhere. I have had a lot of success batting at number five. I put my name there. Four of my Test hundreds have come at that number.
He continued, “The crowd tonight was phenomenal. I had a lot of fun. I was putting a little bit of pressure on myself. You go on social media and people are out there talking rubbish about you.”
Brook continued, “There are a lot of Indian fans out there who will say well done tonight. But they were sledging me a few days ago. To be honest, I’m glad I silenced them.”
Hyderabad captain Aiden Markram did not expect victory
After the match, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Aiden Markram said, “Hats off to the bowlers, who showed great character. Looking at their batting line-up, this score was not even safe.”
Markram further said, “It was good to beat them at their home ground. We started well and we have depth in our batting as well. We all know Brooke’s talent, he plays good cricket shots in the powerplay.”
On the other hand, about the bowlers, he said, “Bhuvi is a reliable player, it was a difficult wicket for the bowlers. We have to work on some areas. It is good to improve as a team. Hopefully this rhythm will continue.”
