You have to look ahead, especially when you have dew, you have to get extra runs. 7.30 start means opposition will have less amount of dew, and we have to score those 15-20 runs extra. After that, you need to get early wickets also. Well, if we keep consistently getting dew, 200 is something all teams have in mind. I felt both our openers got very good deliveries, and that can happen in a game like this.”
