Hyderabad, May 3: Buoyed by the win against table-toppers Chennai Super Kings, SunRisers Hyderabad coach Tom Moody said his team still has quite a distance to go and will need to continue the momentum in its remaining games.
"We have got lot of hard work ahead of us. This is just one step towards where we want to be, that's the final four. It's an important step. The next one against KKR is equally important. The conditions are going to be very different from what we experienced today," he said after SRH scored a 22-run victory over CSK here last night.
With the win against Chennai Super Kings, SRH have eight points from equal number of matches. It currently stands fifth among the eight contesting teams this IPL.
Moody complemented captain David Warner, whose 61 runs laid the foundation for SRH's competitive total of 192, which CSK could not chase.
"He (Warner) has batted exceptionally well throughout the tournament. Again today, he set the pace for us with the bat. He plays fearlessly. He plays smartly. He puts pressure on the opponent. He, along with Shikhar (Dhawan), consistently sets up a good platform to launch from," he said.
Replying to a query, he felt the contribution of team's middle-order batsmen, which was said to be a cause for concern earlier, was good in yesterday's match.
Meanwhile, expressing disappointment over the loss, Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming felt that the first six overs cost the game for his side.
"It's disappointing that we were outplayed. I think the first six overs was where we lost the game. An outstanding first six overs," he said.
