    DD batters took the game away: Narine

    KKR spinner says 136 was defendable

    Needing a win to steer clear of a must-win situation ahead of the playoffs, the Kolkata Knight Riders were beaten by the Delhi Daredevils in Raipur. The DD batters, led by David Warner chased down KKR’s 136-run total with relative ease.

    “Probably we didn’t get as good a start as we wanted. But I think we still got a decent total that we could have defended. But the Delhi batsmen batted really well,” said Sunil Narine, who yet again returned with an economy-rate of under four.

    While the off-spinner was unable to pick any scalps, he clocked figures of 0/14 in his four overs. The Raipur wicket seemed to have worked in his favour while bowling in the crucial middle overs. 

    “I think it is a good wicket. It helped spinners, seamers and is even good to bat on. So it is a good cricket wicket,” said Narine while describing the conditions at the latest IPL venue. He also praised the capacity crowd that came out to support both teams in the highly-anticipated battle.

    “In India, wherever you play there is a great environment. The people here, they really loved coming here to watch cricket,” Narine said.

    The Knight Riders now head back home to Kolkata where they will play the Rajasthan Royals on Friday. Narine and Co. will be hoping to arrest their two-game losing streak in familiar conditions then.

    “We have to take it one game at a time. I think there are little things that we need to do in all areas. If we try, they are very much possible. And if we do those, and then bat and bowl well, we will come out on top,” Narine said. “We will just have a talk and get rid of the negatives form this game and hope to bounce back as hard as possible.”
