Miller and Maxwell who is the wall of the team are thrashed by the Dwayne Bravo in the single over and that was the turning points of the match. So before the Second Match of King XI Punjab against the Delhi daredevils of friday 15th April Captain Miller says team have to bat smarter.
Miller said, “I think it just boils down to being smart,” Miller said. “Who’s thinking smarter than the opposition. They bowled really well the other night. They bowled in the right zone and used the cutters really well. We just have to play smarter in the middle period. I’m a big believer in: ‘If you sense, if you get a sniff, that you can take down a bowler then you should take him down.’ It’s only 20 overs so you have to see how the night is going and go with the flow.”
“Mohali has big boundaries. They were bowling a lot of good cutters. We should be focussing on hitting it in the gaps and running twos instead of taking on the bowlers early on. I think it’s about being clever in the middle period. It’s a fine line because you don’t want to lose wickets and you want to keep the runs coming. It’s about finding that balance,” Miller added.
