Playing too many dot balls cost us the match: Gambhir

13 Mai 2017

-If MI beat KXIP, they will become the first side to win 100 T20 matches. Having won nine of their 12 matches so far, MI are now the table toppers and have already stepped across the door leading to the play-offs. And his first delivery to Robin Uthappa also proved fruitful as Axar Patel took a brilliant diving catch to leave KKR reeling at 3-79.

Gambhir suggested that this could be the end of the Narine opening experiment. Even more telling is that his two wickets for the night were that of the Knight Riders two leading run-scorers in IPL 10. Among bowlers from all teams who have at least bowled two overs in this IPL, MI are the only team whose bowlers have an economy rate of less than 10, further laying emphasis on their collaborative efforts which has translated into the team's excellence. Mohit followed that up with a economical over before Manish Pandey (18; 23b; 1x4, 0x6) and Lynn got out. Chris Lynn was in superb form and top scored with 84 but his knock went in vain as none of the other KKR batsman could make any significant contribution.

Wriddhiman Saha mixed caution with aggression to score an unbeaten 53-ball 93 and help Kings XI Punjab post the highest score of 2017 IPL. They made a wobbly start but made a late recovery to put up a respectable total at the PCA Stadium here.

Mumbai, sitting atop the IPL standings with nine wins and three losses, will be looking to shrug off their performance in the last match, where they lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by seven wickets.

On a good batting deck, Woakes came into the attack with Kings XI 41-2 after Manan Vohra (25 off 16) and Martin Guptill (12) had put on 39 for the first wicket in under five overs. He then hit two more boundaries off Umesh Yadav to up the ante. "But you've got to give credit to Gujarat, in the way they came out and they played so positively and managed to kind of negate whatever advantage we had earlier on", Amla said. The Australian played two delectable shots off Colin de Grandhomme, including a glorious straight drive, before he was out at Kings XI score of 56 for 3.

Kulkarni finally brought the stand to an end, dismissing Marsh with a slower delivery. But his most telling contribution came from the run out of danger-man Chris Lynn, when the Aussie batsman opted to chase two on the arm of Patel, who hurled in a flawless throw to Wriddiman Saha behind the stumps to catch Lynn short of his ground.

He repeated the dose against spinner Kuldeep Yadav at the start of the 16th over, twice clearing the midwicket rope in as many balls, only to loft a googly next up to wide long-off where Woakes took a fine two-handed running catch in the deep.
