After failing to chase down a small target against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) skipper David Warner said he feels that his side got a bit complacent during the chase.
SRH suffered a 12-run defeat against KXIP after the Warner-led side fell short chasing a below-par target of 127. Chris Jordan and Arshdeep Singh took three wickets each as SRH were bowled all out for 114.
“In regards to our batting, we got off to a good start, but verydisappointed. We did not get the job done. We probably got a bitcomplacent in the middle and we did not take the game on enough like we did in the previous game,” Warner said in the postmatch press conference “I think we felt that we would get the runs easily, but then we sort of let the balls get ahead of the runs.”
However, Warner praised the team’s bowling performance and said it was a “special day” for them.
“Our bowlers did an incredible job. They did an exceptional job through the middle period to take wickets. Today was a special day for them,” he said.With this win, KXIP now have 10 points and are at the fifth spot in the points table. On the other hand, SRH are in sixth place with 8 points.
