We could have won the match,” said Jitesh Sharma during a post-match conference.
“The pattern, the way we played was something that harmed us. We should have chased 160 runs on this pitch with the way our batting lineup is. Had one or two batters from the top order settled for long, we could have won the match,” said Sharma during a post-match conference.
Jitesh commented on Kuldeep Yadav’s spell and the plans against him, saying that the spinner was awarded a wicket by the batsman himself. While the second wicket came from a wonderful delivery.“We could have had attacked other bowlers and just got those 24 runs out of his 24 deliveries,” he added.
Mitchell Marsh hit a crucial 63 with the bat, and Thakur’s excellent 4/36 with the ball, which included the wicket of Jitesh Sharma, who threatened to take the game away from the Capitals in the last overs, enabled the team secure a crucial 17-run win over PBKS to keep their playoff chances alive.
