We weren't very clinical: Williamson

Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Kane Williamson felt that the total of 162 against Delhi Capitals in the IPL Eliminator was competitive but his team failed to nail it as the players were not very clinical.

Sunrisers Hyderabad slumped to a heart-wrenching two-wicket defeat to crash out of the IPL here on Wednesday night.

"It was one of those surfaces that produces such close matches. I believed we had a competitive total after the first half. I knew it would be a tricky chase after the powerplay overs as with such totals there are small margins.

"We have been in a position of strength before and haven't nailed it, today was another such day and that's a little bit frustrating," said Williamson after the match.

"Delhi played very well, they are a strong outfit and I think they deserved this win.

"We believed it was a winning total and it looked like it for a long time. They started well and had all the momentum, they had some quality players, as expected on this wicket we squeezed them back and got ourselves ahead. We weren't very clinical with the catching or in our bowling, we weren't great. It wasn't our best performance, a few things needed to be changed and it could have been a winning total," said a disappointed Williamson.

He hoped that the players would come out with better performance in the next season.

"We are building well as a franchise and the development process will have to continue," Williamson said.
