Indian television expert and former Indian rotating player Murali Kartik did not utter a word to give his feelings on how the Punjab Kings made a blunder in losing seven wickets to Delhi Capitals by not sending Chris Gale as an opener in the absence of KL Rahul.
Punjab Kings received a major blow on Sunday when their captain was excluded from the game with acute appendicitis, forcing surgery. the team management asked Mayank Agarwal to take the lead and the Karnataka batman made him count with 99 innings against Delhi Capitals. The lack of input from other batsmen means that PBKS cannot impose a big goal while DC pursues it quickly.
In Rahul’s absence, Chris Gale was expected to return as a opener, but Mayank chose young batsman Prabhsimran Singh with him. The young batsman could only achieve 12 runs out of 16 deliveries per day, while Gail also had a disappointing release. 3 with only 13 runs in his name since he was cleared Kagiso Rabada.
Speaking on the Cricket Dhamaka TV show in India, Kartik asked where the cricket feeling of the PBKS team’s management was, while stressing that David Malan, who made IPL debut with 26-ball 26, should beat No. 3, not No. 4.
“There is no point in cricket in the decision. There is Chris Gale, a great batsman who opened his whole life. When KL was not available, Gale had to open and David Malan had to beat at number 3 because he scored so much work in this position for England, “Kartik said. “I don’t like to criticize any talent, but Prabhsimran can’t overtake Chris Gale and David Malan, I’m sorry.”
