'Morkel's 19th over turned the game'

New Delhi, Apr 30: Delhi Daredevils' pacer Ajit Agarkar has also expressed that his team-mate Morne Morkel's penultimate over paved way for his team to snatch a thrilling one run victory over opponents Rajasthan Royals in Delhi on Sunday.

Agarkar echoed Rahul Dravid's opinion as he said the 19th over bowled by Morkel happened to be the turning point of the game.

Chasing 153 to win, Royals were clear favourites as they needed just 15 runs off the last two overs while Morkel's magical over which gave away just three runs, helped Delhi snatch a victory.

"There is always hope in Twenty20 till the last ball is bowled. They (Rajasthan) were in the driver's seat in the majority part of the match till Morne's over," he said.

"12 runs from the last over is always a tough ask," said Agarkar

When asked if Daredevils were happy with a target of 153, he said the team was actually not satisfied and would have liked to get a few more runs on the board.

"Probably not. We would have like to get a few more but the wicket was not that quick as in the last match. It was little bit on the slower side and shot making was difficult," he said after a thrilling 1 run victory over Rajasthan Royals on Sunday.
