Pune Warriors captain Sourav Ganguly blamed his batsmen for the lose
Pune Warriors India captain Sourav Ganguly blamed his batsmen for their seven-wicket loss to Kings XI Punjab and said they should have shown more “common sense” to post a bigger total on the board.
Pune were dismissed for a modest 115 in just 19 overs after Punjab won the toss and inserted the visitors and Ganguly said toss played an important role.
“It was an important toss to win, we would have also wanted to bowl first but this was a good performance from the Punjab bowlers and you cannot take the credit out of the Kings XI,” Ganguly said after the match in Mohali, on Thursday.
“We should have shown a bit more common sense and get to 140, it should have been a good total. We had 115 runs on the board and we needed to be a lot more smarter,” he added.
