In a video posted by the IPL on its official website, Tim David opened up on the final delivery bowled to Miller and how he felt that Sams had almost bowled a ‘beamer’ to him as well. He said: “I was at long on and I thought, ‘No, that slipped out of his hand with a dew and we’re cooked here!’ But then it just dipped halfway down. It was a great feeling.”

Daniel Sams again said: “Going into that over, preplanning against Miller and Tewatia, we were going to go wide and slow. I tried to get as close to that wide line as I could. When we got that run-out (Tewatia) that was quite handy. With Rashid Khan it was always going to be slower ball bouncer into the wicket. I was bowling quite similar so I decided to go a bit fuller so that he doesn’t sit back and hit it.”

“When I came to the middle we had lost a bit of momentum and it was important to show some intent early and luckily I got a couple out of the middle. So I felt confident on the pitch. Felt like a great pitch, so sometimes when you got those conditions in your favour, try and maximize it. I felt I missed out on a couple to be honest. I thought we were a bit short so I was frustrated when we came off. But it shows how good a job you guys did, specially when they were none for a hundred, dragged them back and got our second win which is obviously a great feeling,” Tim David concluded.
