'We were 20 runs short'

Talking to reporters after table-topper Mumbai’s surprise six-wicket defeat here, Sekar said Mumbai’s total of 154 for nine was not enough.“We lost quick wickets and fell short by about 20 runs. Otherwise we could have defended it,” Sekar said.

This was Kings XI Punjab’s first victory at home. Incidentally, Mumbai too have played most of their early matches at home and Sekar admitted it was of great help. “Playing at home always an advantage. But the Mohali track was equally good but we just did not have enough runs to defend,” he said.

Sekar conceded chinks have appeared on Mumbai’s batting armour but exuded confidence of fixing it. “We will regroup and address this batting concern. We wanted to win this game and seal the semifinal berth here but our batting unfortunately did not click. We will look into it and will confirm our semifinal berth as quickly as possible,” he said.
