Warner, however, also spoke of the batsmen’s complacency against Kings XI Punjab. The Sunrisers (SRH) team failed to achieve even the smallest target of 127 runs on Saturday.
Warner told the press conference after the match, ‘I am confident that the team will be successful in doing so (reaching the playoffs). We now have three challenging matches. One here and two in Sharjah. If we have to win the tournament, then these three teams have to be defeated and for the next three matches we are going with the same goal.
The Sunrisers have only eight points from 11 matches. He has to play the next three matches against Delhi Capitals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians. He will not only have to win all three matches to maintain the possibility of the playoffs, but also has to get a better run rate.
Warner said, “As far as our batting is concerned, it was very disappointing. We could not play our role properly. We became soulless in the middle. We did not take this match like the previous match (win against Rajasthan Royals).
He said, “Our batsmen probably started thinking that we would easily achieve the target and the bowlers came to dominate us.” It happens in cricket when you give a little chance to the opposing team and they want to take full advantage of it as soon as possible.
Warner praised his bowlers who did not let Punjab take advantage of a good start. “Our bowlers played a very good role and prevented them from scoring less than 130 runs,” he said.
