Sehwag said the wind finally favoured Daredevils.

"You could say the wind favoured Delhi today. We were focused on training hard, on our fitness. When I'm batting well, I try to control the match," he said.

Richards' presence in the Daredevils team was the highlight of Sunday's win. The legend took part in the team huddle and chatted for a while with Sehwag and other youngsters.
