In the award ceremony after the match, Iyer said, ‘We were happy with the score of 160. It was a cross score. He (Hyderabad) knew the pitch better than us. They completely knocked us out of the match. The credit goes to him.
He said, ‘It was surprising to see that the pitch was repeating in the second innings. We thought that dew would play a big role and the ball would come well on the bat, but it did not happen. We cannot make excuses though. We did not use the ground properly and did not take 2 runs well. We will try not to let this happen when the next match is played here.
