Heartbreak for KXIP despite Vohra special

Maxwell says: "It was an outstanding game. Manan Vohra batted superbly but unfortunately he did not have much of help from the rest of us. The tail took it a lot closer. I though 160 was chasable but we gave away 10-15 runs too many at the end. We did a lot of things well in the middle but lost it a bit towards the end. To play an innings like Manan did for the losing side is criminal I suppose.

It was innings that was coming, he kept getting 20s and 30s earlier for us and was slightly frustrated but we knew he could score big. We expected Bhuvi to swing the ball around but we didn't expect the wicket to be as up and down as it was. We knew it was two bowlers Rashid and Bhuvi we had to be wary of. I thought we played Rashid well though a majority of it was done by Vohra. We wanted to be ahead of the scoring rate and if we could have got 60 in the powerplay, it would make it easier for the rest of them. I let myself down as well with the batting but the way the guys scrapped was brilliant. Hopefully we could keep doing it ahead as well."
