IPL 2021: After Punjab’s defeat, Ashish Nehra Slams captain and coach

Delhi Capitals defeated Punjab Kings by 6 wickets on Sunday. Despite of posting a decent total, Punjab failed to defend 195 runs and slide down to the seventh place after two consecutive defeats. After the team’s defeat, former Indian fast bowler Ashish Nehra questioned the plans of Punjab captain and coach.

“See, there are a few things which every player wants to do in this format. You like to bowl well, bat well, field brilliantly. You have good or bad days, it’s a common thing in this game. But there are certain things which are in your control, at least that you can do. You didn’t give early overs to your most expensive overseas bowlers,” Nehra said in a chat with Cricbuzz.

Meredith came after 10 overs and picked the wicket of Steve Smith in his first over. Even Shami bowled four overs in four different spells. You preferred Arshdeep to begin with. So, where will you control the game from – frontend or the backend?” – he added.

“PBKS messed up their bowling plans. They played four different bowlers to start with. Such things are mostly done by those sides who lack resources. So, I think, that’s the biggest mistake they committed,” said Nehra.

If this is the team’s strategy, then KL Rahul should not start the innings in the next match. First send Jalaj Saxena, Mohammed Shami and Shah Rukh Khan. After that Rahul will have to think as a captain and discuss these things with Anil Kumble.
