Nitish Reddy said after the match: After the brilliant performance against Punjab Kings, Nitish Reddy said that from my point of view this is a big performance for my team and me too. I was constantly talking to myself to believe in myself. Their fast bowlers bowled very well and that is why I did not adopt a very aggressive approach against them. I knew that the spin bowlers would come and I could play big shots against them. Till now, the bowlers of Punjab Kings team have been continuously using slow bouncer bowlers more in this tournament, which has also benefited them. Looking at the wicket, I also tried to bowl in a similar manner. I will continue to strive to perform like this with bat and ball.
