After Kings XI Punjab won their last match, in a post match conference Ravichandran Ashdwin said that “Not many times you defend. When Rishabh hit the six, we just needed to hang in there. Credit to Shami and Curran. We were probably 25 runs short. We backed ourselves to defend with three spinners. All in all, dew also came in and played a factor. We were gonna bat first. We thought Chris wasn’t there. We wanted to give him all the license up front. We thought there was grip there. We are quite a bunch with experience and a lot of youngsters. We have to keep ourselves fresh. We are having a very good experience. I have never seen a crowd like this in Mohali. It was extremely loud.”
