Captain Dhawan held ‘these’ players responsible as play-off dreams were dashed; Said, ‘Made a mistake…’

Punjab Kings suffered a major shock in the 66th match of IPL 2023 on Friday (May 19). In the match played at Dharamshala, Rajasthan Royals defeated Punjab by 4 wickets. Also, eliminated from the play-off race. Punjab captain Shikhar Dhawan reacted after this defeat. He said at the time that they failed to unite and demonstrate in all the three sections. This is the reason why his team got out of the IPL season early.

What did Dhawan say?
A dejected Shikhar Dhawan said, “We lost a lot of wickets in the powerplay. However, Jitesh Sharma and Sam Karan combined to reach a good score. 200 would have been a good score for us. We did well in every area. However, it often happens that all the three departments do not perform well. We did well in bowling, but made mistakes in fielding. Dropped the catch and lost the match. I have learned a lot as a captain. I wanted to take the match to the end and so I called the lead bowler in our crucial over. Yes, in the last match I bowled the last over to Harpreet and it didn’t work out.”

Speaking further, he said, “We were thinking that we want to score at net run rate. The type of team we have, we will think yes we made a mistake. It is a very good time for Yashasvi Jaiswal and hopefully, it will remain so.”

Rajasthan won by 4 wickets
In fact, in the last match of the series, Punjab Kings lost to Rajasthan Royals by 4 wickets. Batting first in this match, Punjab scored 187 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in 20 overs.
