Sunrisers Hyderabad all-rounder Vijay Shankar, who put up an impressive performance in the win against Rajasthan Royals in the IPL in UAE, says that it was a do-or-die game for him.
“I have not had the best of times with the bat, had to perform. Luckily or unfortunately, we lost early wickets. The team decided to send me up the order,” Vijay said in the post-match media interaction.
“I am very happy to go out there and help the team win,” he said.
On his bowling, Vijay said the most important thing for him was to bowl a lot of overs. “I have not done that in the previous games. And, it is good to see the captain have the belief in you and give the sixth over in the power-play and take up the responsibility,” he said.
“Pretty happy with the way things have gone for me and the team,” he added.
