Kolkata: Terming the 10-run defeat to Royal Challengers Bangalore “sweet and sour”, a disappointed Andre Russell did not mince words to say he should bat higher up the order in situations like these for Kolkata Knight Riders. “When you lose cricket games like this, it’s a sweet and sour feeling. The guys tried very hard tonight. Just a four and a six would have taken us over the line.
But we have a lot to learn from this game,” Russell told reporters. “I’m disappointed to be honest. We lost the game in the middle even though we should have restricted RCB for less than 200. The ball was in our court and we tossed the ball on their side. To lose by 10 runs, its just two hits away. In the middle period, if we scored a bit faster we would definitely get the runs with even balls to spare. We have to go and regroup again, and have meetings about these things and discuss what we need to discuss and what to do at the right time,” Russell said. IANS
