Lucknow team captain Krunal Pandya looked very dejected after the defeat in the eliminator match. He said after the match that we were in a very good position at one point in this match. But suddenly things changed very rapidly for us. I also played the wrong shot. We should have shown a better game. I shouldn’t have played that shot. I take full responsibility for this defeat. The ball was coming on the bat very well on this pitch. We just needed to bat better.

Krunal Pandya further said that we did not play well at all after the strategic break. Quinton de Kock is a good player. But Kyle Myers has a better record here. That’s why we decided to include him in this contest. Mumbai batsmen played very well in this match and their fast bowlers also bowled very well.
