David Warner, who lost a super over against Kolkata Knight Riders, left himself to “bite his tongue” to stop being called too harsh, but the Sunrisers Hyderabad captain admitted to being disappointed with the result.
Warner told the host broadcaster after the match, “I don’t know what to say, I’ll probably have to bite my tongue a little bit.” “We were probably leaking a bit too much, towards the middle overs and the back end. For us it’s about trying to end the game. We’ve also closed the last three games and we have crossed the line. Haven’t arrived, so I. I’m quite disappointed.
A strong finish led the Knight Riders to 163 for 5, but their decision to bowl first in Abu Dhabi was right. “I stand by my decision. After coming from Dubai, I felt that this wicket looked like a good batting and not going to change too much, and to be honest,” he said. “It was slightly up in the middle of the wicket, but there was no excuse at the end of the day. I felt that 165-170 was probably a grand total. We again lost wickets at crucial times.”
Dinesh Karthik, who batted at number 6 for the Knight Riders and scored 58 * in the final five overs, scoring 14 * 29 in a frenzied stand with Eoin Morgan, felt his team should have got an easy win in complex matters. . “It was a game that we could have won a little more comfortably,” Karthik said. “We made it hard for ourselves, but we finally came back and showed character.”
That was in large part thanks to Lockie Ferguson, as New Zealand, playing their first game of the season, took 3 for 15 in regulation time and then threw a super over in which they gave Warner the first ball and Abdul Samar the third ball. branch. . Certainly, Morgan was pleased.
“For Lockie Ferguson to come in the first game of his tournament so far and perform in both the 20-over game and the super-over, as if he was outstanding,” Morgan said. “The hunger and drive he has shown away from the field is waiting for an opportunity.”
Injury is a concern for both teams
The Knight Riders and Sunrisers both suffered from injuries to key players during the game. In the first inning, Kane Williamson suffered an extra injury while making a diving stop, and in the second, Andre Russell was off the field for a while, closing his hamstring.
Williamson’s injury meant that he was moving up the opening sequence with Johnny Bairstow, reducing the running back to batting demands for the middle overs. He fell on the first ball after the powerplay, scoring 19 runs in the opening stand of 58 runs. As a result, Warner had to drop the order.
Heir said, “Yes, he apparently had to open the bat there, but he got a slight shock towards the top end of his junk.” “He will have to undergo some physio treatment in the next few days and can be expected.”
Russell bowled a ball early in the first, but came back to throw the final over. Even though he threw a short run-ball and sat ambushed instead of taking runs, he gave only 17 runs in the last over. This was when he started with a no-ball and with Warner on the last ball the Sunrisers needed a strike. However, Russell conceded only one leg bye.
Morgan said, “Dre went off the field, we thought he was injured. He came back and said he could bowl.” “Obviously, (you) trust the player, and he has come out of a small race that he does every time. Doesn’t manage to execute him as he would have liked. I figured he’d come back Has shown a lot of character for. Start us in Super Over and don’t start with No-Ball as well. He’s a superstar performer for us. He’s been such an integral part of the franchise for so long, so we’ve got Andre Russell needs to fit in. “
