Delhi coach Dahiya defends Sehwag, Gambhir for poor show

"Gautam was batting really well and everyone saw how he got out. I mean that's part and parcel of the game. About Viru, he hit a couple of fantastic shots and he is someone who always backs himself. Initially, there was some help for the bowlers and some of our batsmen played false shots," Dahiya told reporters at the end of the day's play.

Dahiya feels that such is the nature of the track that a possibility of an outright result can't be overruled.

"It's a good wicket and when I mean a good wicket, it's such a strip where even bowlers get some help. I would back my bowlers to do a good job and also hope that there will be a result."

Uttar Pradesh medium pacer Imtiaz Ahmed credited team's bowling coach Ashish Winston Zaidi for helping him as he ended with maiden five-for in first-class cricket.

"We didn't have a lengthy camp but Venky sir (coach Venkatesh Prasad) told me to stick to my strengths. Also Zaidi bhai who has now watched me for a long time also helped me. My strength is bowling outswingers and I also like hitting the deck. The delivery that I got Gambhir out nipped a little bit after pitching," Imtiaz said as he collected the performer of the day memento provided by the local association.
