David Warner Feels His Team Did Not Read The Pitch Right Against MI In IPL 2020

David Warner is getting used to being the losing captain nowadays in IPL 2020 as his team is underperforming with the bat as well as the ball. Chasing a score of 208, they need big shots and long partnerships. However, they failed to do that. Warner said:

β€œLook, I think we didn’t gauge the wicket properly, during the daytime it’s perhaps a bit slower and when the ball gets soft – it’s difficult to hit the wicket harder. They had run on the board and we were left chasing at 10 RPO – we didn’t string partnerships together to take the chase deeper.”

David Warner Credits MI Bowlers For Bowling Well

For Mumbai, Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult were outstanding as they were successful in getting significant breakthroughs for their team. Warner also gave credit to the two bowlers for how they bowled which primarily led to the failure of SRH batting. He said:

β€œThe stats do tell the tale, their two most experienced bowlers, they bowled well towards the end and we couldn’t target the fence. It wasn’t easy to start off (while batting), lack of partnerships as I said, losing wickets back-to-back isn’t ideal, but there were a few positives coming out of this match.”

KL Rahul Blames Lack Of Execution ForΒ  Punjab’s Loss To CSK In IPL 2020

KL Rahul clearly understands what is going wrong with his team. While their batting is doing well due to his form, his bowlers have been below par for the team. They failed to take even a single wicket against CSK. Rahul blamed the lack of execution for his team’s loss. He said:

β€œThere’s no rocket science, we know where we’re going wrong. The execution part has been bad.”

KL Rahul Felt The Batting Score Was Okay

When Punjab made 178, everyone thought it would be a tight match. However, it was a cakewalk for CSK as they chased it in 17.4 overs. Rahul said:

β€œI thought 178 was a good score. The wicket stopped a bit when we started batting, we felt like 170-180 was par on this wicket. But we know if we don’t get wickets against players of this class, we’ll struggle.”
