Bravo picked up important wickets and that led MIE to victory. There is one more game left for the Knight Riders to salvage their victory.
Sunil Narine: It was a good start, but unfortunately, they capitalized in the last seven overs. It is possible to plan, but sometimes planning does not work. Pollard has been batting very well.
Kevin Pollard – The Player of the Match in MIE vs ADKR
Pollard: As long as we qualify, that’s all that matters. We were behind the 8-ball, but the pitch played a role. If a decision didn’t work, you get criticized. Tucker played well.
For winning games, we are willing to think outside the box. The old guy (Bravo) has shown his experience. We acknowledge his presence. It takes time to understand team dynamics. Zahoor has done well for UAE and T10. We scouted him pretty early. We want to continue the winning feeling.
