Krunal Pandya blames himself for Lucknow’s defeat (PC: iplt20)
New Delhi. Once again the journey of Lucknow Super Giants came to an end in the Eliminator itself. This time Mumbai Indians kicked Lucknow out of IPL. Rohit Sharma’s team made it to Qualifier 2 by defeating Lucknow by 81 runs. While batting first, Mumbai had given a target of 183 runs, in reply Lucknow were reduced to 101 runs in 16.3 overs and the biggest reason for their defeat was captain Krunal Pandya himself.
In an attempt to do something different for Krunal, who replaced KL Rahul as captain, his team went out of the tournament itself. After losing the match, he also realized his mistake. After losing the match, Pandya said that he takes responsibility for this defeat. The team was in a very good position, but the downfall of the graph started with their shot playing. He played a very bad shot and everything started after his bad shot.
Krunal took responsibility for the defeat
Krunal said that he takes full responsibility for this defeat. The wicket was absolutely beans. He just had to bat well and just take responsibility, but after the first time out, he could not do that. On giving priority to Kyle Mayers over Quinton Dickock, Pandya said that it is always a difficult decision. Dickock is a quality batsman, but Meyers’ record was much better than his. In such a situation, he felt that the mayors could be elected.
started with spin
Meyers could not justify his election. He was able to score only 8 runs. Lucknow’s bowlers performed brilliantly, but in the beginning, Mumbai hit a lot of fours and sixes. The attack was started by Krunal Pandya himself. Lucknow started with the spinner and Mumbai also scored 29 runs in 3 overs without any loss. Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan played some good shots, but in the fourth over, Naveen-ul-Haq came on the attack and caught Rohit. On starting the attack with the spinner, Pandya said that he felt that he could do something different. For this reason, he started with spin.
