Suryakumar made 43 off 30 balls before being dismissed in the 19th over.

“Today we tried to take the game deeper because we were playing with six batsmen. And there is no one better than Surya to finish a game, ”Jayawardene said.

“In powerplay, they would swing the ball a little bit and everything. So I didn’t want the sun to fall in that situation and not be able to play its normal game. It was a strategic matter. “

The 44-year-old said playing the role of Suryakumar and Kieron Pollard finisher gave the youngsters more freedom in the middle.

“Two young men, we know what they are capable of. So they are given some freedom to go and control the situation, so that the silt and the sun can chase it. That was the primary thought.

“It’s a call we’ll take depending on how we’ve set up strategically against specific opponents.”

Jayawardene admitted that the absence of injured Joffra Archer was hurting the team as the bowling unit could not hold the pressure.
“Of course, one of the best bowlers we bought at the auction was Joff (Joffra Archer) – Joff is not here. So it’s hard when you’re in this situation, but we’re trying to see how we can best manage it.

“In the last four or five matches, we’ve spelled really well, we’ve been controlling things for a while. But we can’t hold that pressure, because at certain times either two or three overs get bigger and that hurts us.

“So this is something that we really need to nail down and make sure that our death penalty is better in that situation.”

West Indies all-rounder Oden Smith (4/30) saved himself after his terrific outing (hitting six off the last two balls) against the Gujarat Titans as he took three wickets in the final over to help Punjab defend a total of 198 against MI.

Smith attributed his success to the support he received from captain Mayank Agarwal, the coach and the team management.

“They have been very inspired. They helped me mentally to get into this game and be able to perform today. They have been a major help to me. I want to thank the coach. “

“Captain Mayank was amazing. He has always come to me and told me that he supports me 100 percent, no matter what happens. It’s just a matter of believing that I can do it because I have the whole team behind me. “
