NEW DELHI: Kings XI Punjab skipper David Miller heaped praises on Amit Mishra stating that the leg-spinner was “unlucky” not to end up with a five-for after having changed the course of the game with wickets of him, Shaun Marsh and Glenn Maxwell.
Mishra’s 4/11 in 3 overs was instrumental in Daredevils notching up a comfortable eight-wicket win over Kings XI Punjab.
“Mishra was unlucky not to get five wickets. He is a great bowler, he got myself, Maxwell and Marsh as well, so he has been a game-changer out there,” Miller told reporters after their second loss.
Not ready to blame the Feroz Shah Kotla wicket, Miller said:”It was a low-scoring game but I think we lost too many wickets in different stages which changed the momentum of the match. I think the wicket was right.”
Asked why didn’t he introduce Glenn Maxwell early in the innings, Miller said:”I didn’t want the bowlers to bowl too many overs at once. We didn’t have enough runs on board. I thought I will bring Maxwell later on but then they won the game. So yes, Maxwell’s over was a bit too late. He could have come early. I guess we need to chop it up.”
