Kolkata Knight Riders captain Dinesh Karthik has said that he is satisfied with the performance of his batsmen and they are proud of him after the 18-run defeat in the IPL match against Delhi Capitals. Karthik said on Saturday after the match, “I am proud of the way the batsmen showed the game. We showed the ability to struggle till the end of the match which is the specialty of our team. We could not make the boundary between 10-13 overs and lost many wickets while chasing a big target. But to be honest, we would have won the match had it taken two more sixes. “
He said, “I felt it was difficult to bowl on this wicket, while the bowlers performed brilliantly.” Maybe we gave 10 more runs. We wanted to give more time to Andre Russell so that he could make an impact. We were not in favor of manipulating the upper order and would talk to the coaches about Sunil Narine’s role. I have full faith in Narayan. “
