'He has got the pace and then he was using the wide yorker well too.'
Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli hailed young pacer Navdeep Saini's brilliant Super Over that helped his side win a pulsating Indian Premier League contest against Mumbai Indians, in Dubai, on Monday.
RCB defeat Mumbai Indians via the Super Over after the match was tied. Saini bowled the Super Over for the Royal Challengers and conceded only 7 runs before Kohli finished the game with a last-ball boundary off Jasprit Bumrah.
"Outstanding Super Over from him (Saini), bowling against Hardik (Pandya) and (Kieron) Pollard. I think the longer boundary helped him gain some confidence with his yorker, because he has got the pace and then he was using the wide yorker well too," Kohli said, at the post-match presentation ceremony.
"The guys showed real good composure to get these two points in the bag and very crucial points at early stages of the tournament," he added.
He also credited Ishan Kishan and Pollard for rallying Mumbai back into the game.
"It was such a roller-coaster of a game. We batted well in the first innings to get us past 200 and then the start of bowling was outstanding. They played well in the middle overs, waited for the dew to kick in... Pollard and Ishan to bat the way they did was outstanding to keep them in the game," he added.
According to Kohli, fielding is something that the team needs to work on.
