Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer called his Indian Premier League (IPL) final a `` great feeling '' for the first time, saying that his team needed to maintain its spirit in the title match.



Delhi beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 17 runs in the second qualifier on Sunday. In the final, he will face Mumbai Indians on Tuesday, who defeated him in the first qualifier.
Iyer said after the match, "Great. 
This is the best feeling ever. Meanwhile, there were many ups and downs. We remained like a family. There was a lot of responsibility as a captain and in the top order, you had to maintain consistency as a batsman.

He said, "But I got the support of my coaches and team owners. Actually I am lucky to have found such a good team. In the next match also we will have to play free and keep our spirit. 

Batting first, Delhi scored 189 for three and then restricted Sunrisers Hyderabad to 172 for eight.

Iyer said, "We were happy with our score. We were scoring 10 runs per over but Rashid Khan could be fatal and that's why we played his oversight.
Regarding sending Marcus Stoinis as the opening batsman, he said, "We didn't have a good partnership for the first wicket." We needed a fast start and we felt that if Stoinis played more balls, he could get us into a better      position
