No home advantage in T20s: Rahul Sharma
PWI spinner says RCB simply outplayed his team on the day
The Warriors leggie took some time out for a brief chat with iplt20.com where he stressed on the need to improve in all departments.
Is PWI’s poor home form the reason behind their current position?
You can’t say which team is better in this [Twenty20] format. Whoever plays well, wins the match regardless of an away or a home game. They [RCB] played better today and won the game.
What areas do the Warriors need to improve?
Sometimes our batting is not good enough, and at times [it’s] our bowling. We are giving 20 runs in a couple of overs, which is causing a lot of problems. If we work on that, we will win more matches.
What was it like to play under Sourav Ganguly’s captaincy?
It was a different experience as every captain is not the same. It was good to play under him.
Did you have any special plans while bowling to Chris Gayle?
I planned for four days on how to bowl to him and I did pretty well today. He is the only batsman who can hit any bowler, and it’s not a big thing for him to hit five sixes in an over.
What do you think about Steve Smith’s captaincy?
He is a very young captain and has captained the Sydney Sixers to Big Bash [League] glory.
