Targeting 200 plus total is not easy to recover in a T20 game, however, Kings XI Punjab captain Glenn Maxwell said that they had a huge good chance to overhaul the challenging target against Sunrisers.
On Friday, chasing the target 208 to win, team Punjab fell short by 26 runs and fall to sixth from the fifth position in the IPL point table.
After the match ended, Kings XI skipper Maxwell said “It was changeable. We were sloppy with the ball and in the field. We bowled either side of the wicket. There were a few soft dismissals in isolation. If you put together it looks bad.”
The Aussie praised to Shaun Marsh, who scored 84 off 62 balls chasing Sunrisers total 207 runs, said “Marsh was absolute class, he was striking the ball beautifully. He has done it for Kings XI for 10 seasons. It is a quick turnaround for us. Al least we will be at home and turn up next game.”

Talking about his pleased way batting, winning skipper Warner said “Look we had to come out with a positive mindset. The wicket played fantastic. Fantastic knock from Marsh. Shikhar wanted to play his natural game. Kane is a fantastic player. The way he comes in and plays so freely and so elegantly is great for the team.”
When asked about dropped chances, he said “This venue is quite hard under lights, a few basic drops. Those were high in the air but no excuses.”

Warner said about Man of the Match spinner Rashid Khan superb bowling in the middle overs. “It is a big league and big state; just trying my best to learn from them. Murali (Muttiah Muralitharan) has been superb for me and helping me with his experience. The confidence and the motivation comes from the coach and skipper. I want to dedicate this award to my family and my brother jalil.”
