Wickets of skipper Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard were special for me: Amit Mishra

Delhi Capitals spinner Amit Mishra, who picked up a match-winning four-wicket haul against Mumbai Indians, said he particularly enjoyed dismissing opposition skipper Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard.

Mishra says, the wickets of skipper Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard were special for me. My performance helped the Rishabh Pant-led side restrict the Mumbai Indians to 137/9. Delhi Capitals then registered a comprehensive six-wicket victory over MI at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Tuesday.

I had a clear-cut plan about where I should bowl and how I could dismiss each of the big players in the Mumbai Indians' side through my variations. And I am very happy that I could execute my plans. I am even happier about Delhi Capitals winning the match," the 38-year-old said in the Delhi Capitals release. The Delhi Capitals had just a day's gap between their match against Punjab Kings in Mumbai and their game against Mumbai Indians in Chennai. However, Mishra said that the quick change of venues didn't affect the players.

"It was a challenge to be ready for a game in a different venue in a short period of time, but as professional cricketers, we know how to motivate ourselves and recover for the next match. The physio's work is very important in these situations. And once we step on the field, we focus on our performance and we don't think about anything else," he said. When asked if Delhi Capitals' recent poor record.
