"I guess it's about keeping batsmen guessing about what's coming; so one has to try not to be too predictable and try and bowl the same length whether it is a slower ball or a faster ball," Henriques was quoted as saying by iplt20.com.
"When you are not bowling a slower ball, to make sure you are giving it everything, you got to surprise them a little bit even on a low and slow wicket."
The Australian said holding one's nerve is the key to success in Twenty20 and credited teammate Bhuvneshwar Kumar for executing it.
"You always want to back yourself and keep backing your own skills and what you do. To be able to absorb pressure longer than the other team can do it. We did that and Bhuvneshwar was fantastic again under pressure. He just bowled six perfect yorkers there and it shows how well he is holding his nerve at the moment," he said.
"I know that you are not always going to be able to go out there and score runs and take wickets. So to make sure whatever you do first. If that doesn't go well, (you have) to make sure you make up for it in the second innings and not let it bother you too much because you've still got a job to do with either the bat or the ball."
