A few days, Kings XI Punjab has defeated Mumbai Indians in the Double super over match and creates history. During this match, KXIP needed two runs to win the match on the last ball. And Chris Jordan was on strike and played a shot and went for the second run, but during the second runs, he took a longer route to complete the second run, he got run-out due to this.
Now Chris Jordan has revealed that why he took a longer route while completing second run against Mumbai Indians.
“I know watching from the outside, that route I took to come back for the second looked baffling. But I actually lost my footing on my turn at the non-striker’s end. If I’d tried to go back in the same direction I definitely would have slipped up and fallen down.” Chris Jordan told Wisden.com
“I changed my line to get back to the other end and almost made it; the ball hit my foot on the way too so I thought it deflected which is why I didn’t dive, and it was just short,” he added.
“When that happens, you’re thinking: ‘Not again’. It happened in the first game against Delhi, where I creamed one, middle of the bat, [Kagiso] Rabada takes a screamer and we draw that game and lose that super over,” he said
Today, Kings XI Punjab will face Sunrisers Hyderabad in their must win match in the tournament. KXIP is standing at 6th position in the points table with 8 points. They have won their last three matches and now they can try to continue their winning momentum.
