FOLLOWING A 48-run defeat to Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir expressed his disappointment over team’s sloppy fielding in IPL 10.
KKR failed to chase SRH’s mammoth total of 209 run, which was formed largely due to David Warner’s staggering 126 off 59 balls. The Aussie, who was dropped on more than one occasion and rode his luck extremely well. As reported by CricketCountry, Gambhir rued his team’s missed opportunities and urged his side to pull their socks in the upcoming games.
“We need to improve in our fielding. We have been very sloppy so far in the tournament, we need to pull up our socks if we have to do well. Catches win matches and you cannot drop catches off a player like David Warner. They could not have got to that score if we had taken our chances. We have two more games at home, hopefully we can play some good cricket.”
Having won seven out of 10 games, the Kolkata franchise is at the top of the rankings table. They will face Rising Pune Supergiant at Eden Gardens on May 3.
