Punjab Kings (PBKS) captain K.L. Rahul called Deepak Chahar’s kunckle balls that several PBKS batsmen and his own run out as the purpose for his group’s helpless excursion with the bat on Friday night against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Wankhede Stadium here.
CSK dominated the match abundantly by six wickets and in 15.4 overs in the wake of confining PBKS to 106/8 out of 20 overs. “Credit to the CSK bowlers, they bowled in the correct channels, Deepak [Chahar] with his knuckle balls two or three wickets, getting myself run-out doesn’t help the group,” said Rahul after the match.
“There’s very little more to say. In the event that any group loses five wickets in the initial seven or eight overs, it’s continually going to be get up to speed. They bowled well, we played some terrible shots, that is the way the game goes,” added the initial batsman while depicting his group’s initial loss of wickets which saw them get diminished to 26 for five in 6.2 overs. Rahul added that the pitch was hard to bat on.
“It (pitch) was significantly more tacky and tasteless than what it resembled. It was anything but a 100-110 wicket, possibly 150-160 kind of a wicket. In any case, it’s decent learning for us, ideally we can gain from these missteps and return more grounded in the following game,” he added.
