'35 Dot Balls Not Acceptable in T20,' Says David Warner
|| Indian Correspondent ||
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) faced another defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their last game. However, after the match, SRH captain David Warner has said that he takes full responsibility of their loss. But he also said that batsmen need to step up their game in the middle overs.
Warner scored a 30-ball 36 in the 10th over, Apart from him, Wriddhiman Saha struggled with the bat, scoring 30 off 31 balls and Manish Pandey smashed a quickfire 51 off 38. Later, KKR chased down the total with ease.
"In the match against KKR, I and Jonny got ourselves in and we backed ourselves to play the way we wanted to play, unfortunately through the middle, we could have gone probably a little harder, we could have taken few more risks. It was a very soft and poor dismissal from myself, my dismissal happened when we were looking to change the gears, I don't blame anyone and I take full responsibility for not batting out the overs," said Warner during a virtual press conference.
"I don't know where it wrong, we just cannot be having two batsmen on the bench, we could have gone a little bit harder through the middle, we played four-five overs for 20 runs after my dismissal, we need to apply little more pressure on the bowlers and we need to try to hit more boundaries. I am more disappointed with the number of dot balls we played, there were 35-36 dot balls and in T20 cricket, it is not acceptable,” he concluded.
Notably, SRH have lost both of their matches and they will take on Delhi Capitals on September 29 in Abu Dhabi as well.
